If you’ve been reading In The Groove for a while, you know that we love COS. It’s one of the rare affordable brands that takes a more thoughtful approach to fast fashion, both in terms of design and production. Their pieces are known for elegant minimalism, and they happen to have a lot of designs that trend more conservative. Which is perfect if you’re like me, and don’t like anything too short or too low anymore. Our summer COS edit is full of sleek skirts, stylish shirts, and easy-to-wear jumpsuits.
The building blocks of my wardrobes? T-shirts and button downs. The right top can make me full instantly pulled together, and there’s no shortage of options. Linen is the fabric of the summer, and this open-collar shirt in natural beige or lilac adds an interesting detail to the basic. I love the longer length of the short-sleeve on this v-neck tee. Get this slightly slouchy tee when you want to be extra-comfy. You can wear this oversized shirt dress as a tunic-y top or as a dress if you want to show off your legs.
COS’s dedicated to supremely chic, slightly oversized tailoring means they turn out some seriously stylish bottoms. Trousers, like this pair of linen pants with an elastic waist or these wide-leg joggers, are comfortable without sacrificing any style. It takes a lot of specificity to nail the oversized look without crossing over into full-on shapeless territory, and this wide-leg jumpsuit, these slightly-flared jeans, and this linen shirtdress all maintain a beautiful shape.
It’s not just clothing, though. COS’s accessory game is on-point too! This leather rope belt is such a chic way to cinch your waist, whether you’re belting a shirtdress or high-waisted trousers. And their large drawstring bag would seriously class up your next errands run.
