There's no denying that fast fashion has established itself as a shopping destination. But not all $20 tops are made equal--as anyone who has ever had a dress fall apart after a few washes can attest to. So what's the key to smart fast fashion shopping? It's all in the details--which is why we're all over the Mango spring '13 lookbook.
Denim shorts aren't plain old indigo; instead, they have a floral pattern printed by the pockets. A khaki vest? That's got leather detailing. As for those white pants--they actually have a really subtle paisley up and down the leg. It's the sorts of things that make you do a double-take--and leads to reactions of, "Wait, what?!" when you tell your friend that no, that dress isn't Phillip Lim, it's Mango.
