Have you heard about COS? The fashion store, which stands for Collection of Style, is known for their sleek, androgynous silhouettes and distinctly modern point-of-view. Founded by two Scandinavian designers, the brand is one of the fastest growing companies in fashion, and it’s not hard to see why.
At first, I was a little intimidated by it all. The perfectly beautiful androgynous models, the stark styling on the website, and the sometimes-out-there silhouettes. But when I dug in, I found that it was full of beautiful, elegant pieces that are perfect for age-defying women. Even Queen Letizia of Spain recently wore one of their long-sleeve dresses on an engagement, giving the brand the royal stamp of approval. Below, I break down my favorite pieces and show you what I’m buying at COS.
One of COS’s strong suits? Definitely shirting. They have a wide range of (long-sleeve!) shirts and top that never sacrifice on style. Take this draped-tie cotton button down, for example. It’s all the comfort and wearability of your average white shirt, with a statement detail that sets you and your outfit apart. This striped smocked shirt injects a modern flair into the classic seersucker top, adding texture and shape in an unexpected way. This top with wiggle cord detail is another example of how COS can elevate a basic blouse in a really fresh way. Even their plain white t-shirts feel intentional and designed.
I also love their dresses, which are minimalist enough to make it feel like yours but stylish enough to stand on its own. This khaki-colored cotton dress can be dressed up or down with heels or sneakers, and works just as well at a garden party as it would during a busy day of running errands.
