Summer Is About Easy Yet Elevated Dressing, and COS's New Collection Is Spot-On

As fashion editors, we spend a lot of time looking at brands, new-in pieces and best sellers to bring you only the best options to consider adding to your wardrobe. There are certain brands that we turn to because they always deliver, and few deliver on as many levels as COS. As we ready ourselves for summertime, COS has just dropped its High Summer collection, which embodies everything we’ve been dreaming about wearing this summer and every summer to follow.

Many factors set COS apart from other brands, but high-quality, exquisitely designed pieces at high-street prices is one of them. Its collections are always the perfect harmony of trending styles with a minimalist edge and classics that many of our editors’ wardrobes are built upon. You’d never guess that these styles were from the high street thanks to their elevated designs, which will have people stopping you in the street to ask, “Where did you get that?” And of course, the brand has had its fair share of cult pieces, including the crossbody bag and gathered dress. All in all, we’re big fans.

As we know, summer is full of occasions from beachside holidays to garden parties to al fresco dinners. And COS’s collection is full to the brim of dress-up-or-down styles that will work for all events. The brand has embraced light fabrics including linen and cotton for the warmest days and is offering up refined silhouettes in both neutrals and bold shades to appeal to all style senses. What’s evident throughout the drop is the focus on simplicity that lasts. The designs, even the more trend-led, feel so timeless that we can imagine styling them for many seasons and years to come.
