Despite being totally easy to throw on and dash straight out the door, sweaters and cardigans have a way of adding significant polish to just about any ensemble — so you end up looking as if you spent serious time putting together your look, even if that's nowhere near reality on a Monday morning. The cozy mid-layer is undoubtedly one of the most versatile pieces in a wardrobe, especially considering the variety of silhouettes and shades available each season. And if it's been awhile since you freshened up your collection, Mango's knitwear sale is the perfect opportunity to stock up on cheap sweaters and cardigans under $50, so you can get ready in no time and look chic doing it.
Despite the shockingly low price point, the sweaters offered during Mango's holiday knitwear sale look much more expensive than they actually are. Thanks to the high-street brand's attention to current silhouettes and wearable shades, the sweaters and cardigans included in its offerings this season look just as good as more expensive brands — at a fraction of the cost.
And the sale, which runs in store and online through Nov. 19, will help you save even more, because prices are cut by 30 to 40 percent on a wide selection of knit layering pieces. All going rates for the discounted items are as shown on site, so there's no code necessary to see the savings you'll receive.
Whether you're headed home for the holidays or hosting family at yours, the celebration calls for an outfit that's equal parts refined and relaxed, so you can look stylish while staying comfortable. Snag Mango's red openwork cotton sweater, down from $39.99 to $25.99 during the sale. The cheery, bright color and woven knit are totally appropriate for the festive time, while the V-neck and slightly slouchy fit give the sweater a modern vibe. Pair with tailored wool trousers and a contrasting boot (leopard print à la Gigi Hadid, perhaps) for a look that's just as fun as the season.
Several sophisticated options are also on deck during the sale, like this tie waist sweater for $41.99 or this elevated wrap tied cardigan for $29.99. The two pieces come in neutral shades — oatmeal for the former, and ivory or black for the latter, making them literally foolproof to style with other separates. The simple, sleek layers are ideal for adding a feminine touch to slim pants or denim; a welcome change if you've had enough of wearing oversized sweaters to social events.
When weekends are spent lounging at home or running errands to and fro, comfort is the name of the game — but the last vibe you want to give off is sloppy. So, opt for a long wool-blend cardigan, like this $41.99 sale piece, over a slim turtleneck to look more put-together than usual on your Sunday morning coffee run. Or, layer on this cool tricolor cotton sweater that could elevate a pair of cashmere sweats or sporty track pants. The sweater may only be $34.99 thanks to Mango's sale, but it'll make your weekend wardrobe look way more expensive than that. Sorry old college sweatshirt, you may be out for good.
The beauty of sweaters and cardigans is the ease at which they pair with a wide variety of other items, and in the process taking an outfit to a higher level of polish and style.
