When it comes to shopping on the high street, COS has a reputation for quality pieces and tailoring. The brand aesthetic is very much a take on elevated basics that can be interchanged effortlessly. Hailed as a contemporary-style label, it has an emphasis on long-wearing styles to withstand the test of time. Few high-street retailers do elevated basics quite like it; it’s a one-stop shop for items to suit minimalists and maximalists alike this season, with equal selections of eclectic colourways and basic, uniform pieces in muted tones and clean-cut lines. 

COS was one of the high-street brands I would achingly admire from the shop window as a teen, and it still lives up to its accolade over a decade later. The premium retailer has a more attainable calibre than many of its counterparts—a buffer between high-street names and higher-end designers. 

The brand ethos is on timeless classics that transcend trends and remain pieces you’ll pull from your wardrobe throughout the year. This season, as standard, it offers detailed tailoring and elevated basics one could wear for occasions varying from informal dining to workwear, and has also recently introduced some great winter-ready styles to its arsenal. Personally, I’m particularly impressed with its trouser offering, as well as the many knit items hitting the shelves—this is the material you should look out for as we head into winter. 

Whether you’re hoping to introduce new items into your existing wardrobe or invest in something for a fancier occasion, these are the standout pieces the brand currently has on offer. Keep scrolling to see my edit of the pieces I love right now at COS.
