Making changes for the next season? Seeking pieces with a high degree of versatility and a casual yet elegant vibe might be your best bet if you wish to stand out. The Mango City Wear looks from the Autumn 2011 Catalog are definitely focused around these principles and the results are more than appealing.

Simplicity, sexiness and functionality are the three most predominant attributes of the looks presented. Vivid colors combined with soft neutral tones, simple and versatile prints and sexy footwear got a huge emphasis in the collection due to their high degree of adaptability and instant modern appeal.

Stripes, colored faux leather, star prints, functional bags, pointed toe pumps or ankle boots are some of the most attention grabbing style pieces used to create the desired focal point while maintaining an adequate balance between style and functionality. Simple and intuitive, paying attention to proportions and color contrasts, the outfits ideas presented can be adapted to real life without any difficulty.

Skirts and dresses don’t lose their appeal for the autumn season, yet colored pants and jeans seem to be the main focus as they are a lot more suitable for the varying temperatures of the season and can instantly sculpt our silhouette. Flared jeans and carrot pants seem to be the preferred options of the brand as they tend to be flattering for a variety of body types, so these are definitely worth considering if you think these styles might flatter your physique.

Knitwear is also a trend that is subtly highlighted in the latest Mango lookbook, but that is noteworthy nonetheless. This style option is not only fashionable and extremely cozy, but it can also create interest through texture rather than color, so it can be an interesting addition to your shopping list this autumn.

In terms of accessories, things are kept relatively simple and basic, as with the discreet jewelery, simple belts for emphasizing the waist, fairly small bags instead of attention grabbing XXL handbags and of course, classy and easy to match pointy toe shoes and ankle boots. Despite the apparent simplicity, the outfits are a fun and easy solution for the upcoming season, so take your favorite looks and use them as inspiration for your next shopping session.
