'Tis the season to layer in style!
How to Make Outerwear the Focus of Your Outfit

This season's weather calls for some genius layering, and there's nothing we love more than to strut around wearing a fabulous piece of outerwear during this time of the year. How to do that, you ask? Read on and score some fashion tricks using Mango's latest offerings:

1. Go for timeless pieces.

Mango tailored blazer

There's nothing basic about wearing a tailored blazer, especially if it comes in a classic black-and-gray palette. You can take it from day to night, or from work to play! Keep things laid-back yet sleek with a white statement tee underneath, a string of white pearls, and a pair of no-nonsense black jeans. Add a pop of color to give it some extra oomph—we're thinking bright-hued stilettos, a red clutch, or a vampy lip color, perhaps?

2. Play with texture.

Mango faux fur coat

Never be afraid to go out of your comfort zone. A faux fur coat? Yes, please! Go all out and play around with pieces in bold colors and interesting textures. If you're traveling to another country with a colder climate, take out your knit turtleneck sweater, leather skirt, and thigh-high boots for a stroll in the park. Otherwise, wearing your little white dress underneath scene-stealing outerwear is always enough to turn heads.

3. Balance your proportions.

Mango long coat

The only way you can get away with wearing a long coat in Manila is if you know how to strike the right balance between layering in style and showing some skin. Wear it open to show off your cute outfit underneath—a pretty blouse with a ruffled collar or a pussy bow, a miniskirt that gives the illusion of longer legs, and a pair of sneakers you can never go wrong with!
