I’ve been waiting not-so-patiently for the COS American launch for a while now, so I was ready to pounce when the online store opened this week. I’m a huge fan of the minimalist clothing options, which focus on combining quality and innovative fabrics with affordability. The result is a line that is at once classic and thoroughly modern, plus quite inexpensive. I’m so excited.
I’ve made my way through the inaugural offerings, checking out each and every piece. Although there are many excellent options, my first purchases will include the gorgeous frill-free lingerie and spring perfect flats. Check out some of my favorites:
While I’m a big fan of all of the COS lingerie, this Sheer Stripe Bra is a standout. The simplicity of the shape coupled with the delicate striped pattern creates a look that is incredibly pretty without being too precious.
→ Buy the COS Sheer Stripe Bra, $35.00, at cosstores.com.
These flat leather slip on shoes, with their raw-cut edges and cutout style, exude an effortless luxury. I’ll wear them with everything from cropped jeans to pencil skirts, for that fabulous French street style look.
→ Buy the COS Flat Leather Shoes, $135.00, at cosstores.com.
A basic white shirt becomes not-so-basic when you add a graduated hem and tailored A-line shape. Picture it paired with slim black pants…modern minimalism at its finest.
→ Buy the COS Top With Graduated Hem, $89.00, at cosstores.com.
While I was instantly drawn to this gathered dress in black, further contemplation led me to believe that the red option is really the must-have. The simplicity of its silhouette is contrasted perfectly by the cherry red color.
→ Buy the COS Gathered Waist Dress, $99.00, at cosstores.com.
Artfully structured sweatshirts and sweatshirt lookalikes are popping up everywhere lately. The unique curved hem and 7/8 length sleeve of this COS jersey top helps it to hold its own against the much pricier Alexander Wang versions. Score!
→ Buy the COS Salt and Pepper Top, $69.00, at cosstores.com.
