Mango Party Dresses for 2011

Mango have an amazing collection of party and cocktail dress for the new 2011 Autumn Winter season. There are more than sixty dresses to choose from, ranging in price from just over £20 up to £180, so there really is something to suit all tastes and budgets.

In this article, I’m going to describe some of my personal favourites from the collection. However, if you want to browse them directly yourself at Mango, here’s the link: Mango Party Dresses

Mango Wrap Silk Dress

Be pretty in pale peach with the Mango Wrap Silk Dress, a sleeveless wrap dress in silk which has a v neck and v back and falls to about knee length. There is pleat detail to the front with ruffle embellishment to the shoulders.

On the waist, there is a belt which is embellished with a series of shiny stud appliqué detail. The belt can be removed for an alternative look.

I like this dress because it’s a flattering and easy to wear style, yet very pretty and feminine. Complete the outfit with a pair of nude heeled court shoes.

Mango Sleeveless Leather Shift Dress

The Mango Sleeveless Leather Shift Dress is a sleeveless, above the knee leather dress which has a scoop neck, concealed back zip fastening and panel detail.

It’s a smart and sexy style, and perfect for on and off duty looks. Complete the look with a pair of towering black leather heels and a mini gold box clutch and you’re sorted for your night out.

Mango Vintage Style Dress

The Mango Vintage Style Dress is an interesting style. Far from being vintage, to me it has more of a futuristic look about it, with the metallic sequin embellishment to the shoulders and waist. I love the way the sequins give the dress an almost armoured look, when it is in fact lovely and soft.

The dress has cap sleeves, a v neck  and falls to just above the knee.

Complete the outfit with a pair of nude heels, such as Mango’s Shiny Pumps in shade “make-up”, and the Hard-structured clutch handbag in gold.

Mango Strapless Mini Dress

Mango Strapless Mini Dress

You gotta love the Mango Strapless Mini Dress, a white bandeau style mini dress with black stars embellished with shiny black sequins.

Being monochrome, it will go with anything accessory wise, although I think it would look good teamed with Mango’s black leather peep toe platform court shoes and the black Channel style quilted handbag.

I was fortunate enough to be invited to attend the launch party at Sketch in London last Tuesday (22nd February), where I rubbed shoulders with the great and the good from the fashion world, met the CEO of my-wardrobe, Sarah Curran, (who is lovely) and drank far too much champagne. The event took place in a square room and the my-wardrobe website was projected onto the four walls, so you felt that you were actually inside the website. It was an amazing experience. That is me in the photo on the right, carrying a Vivienne Westwood Ebury Clutch in one hand, a my-wardrobe goodie bag in the other and wearing Michael by Michael Kors platform heels.
