More and more, Instagram is influencing how we dress, with the stylish ladies that we follow inspiring our shopping habits as we scroll. So, when you see more than one person on your feed who you deem chic wearing the same top, it warrants a closer investigation. Such is the case of this yellow-and-white striped, knotted-front, cropped blouse from Mango.
Worn by influencers including louche Frenchie Camille Charriere of Camille Over The Rainbow, perennially sun-kissed Lucy Williams of Fashion Me Now, and Irish blogger Tar Mar, this tie-front blouse has appeared again and again on our Insta stalks of late, with its diagonal stripes and button down front. Whether styled for the Bahamas beaches, a la Lucy, with complementary tangerine shorts, or with ankle-grazing mom jeans and a quintessential basket bag like Camille, there’s no denying this is a versatile item, perfect for a summer in the city or by the sea.
Mango, of course, has seriously upped its game of late – rivalling fellow Spanish brand Zara in the trend stakes on the high street. The chain has been quick to capitalise on this success, by recruiting a team of #MangoGirls to wear its… wares, and show off just how right they’re getting it.
We’ve currently totted up four serious influencers wearing the blouse, so watch this space to see if it becomes the new must-have top of the summer. After all, it’s happened before – just look at the French-girl loved MaisonCleo blouson last year, which featured a tie-front and dramatic puff-sleeves, and was owned by seemingly everyone online between July and August 2017.
