You might be on your fourth cheese of the week by now and be thinking there’s nothing you’d like less than getting properly dressed, but the truth is there’s never a better time to invest in some chic, reliable and staple pieces than the end of the year.
Whether it’s bundling up in a chunky knit, elevating your outfit with a chic leather bag, or semi-splurging on a new pair of boots, I firmly believe the prospect of a new year and the end of an old one is the perfect moment to think about what’s missing from your capsule wardrobe.The two places I’ve found that absolutely hit the nail on the head? COS and Arket.
Whether I’m looking for elevated classics, or searching for the latest It item that has still has a timeless feel, between the two, they just truly never seem to disappoint. Not only do the trend-led designs scratch the itch of making sure my outfits feel current, the premium quality never lets me down, and, as classic pieces go, all of COS and Arket’s pieces are pretty affordable, too.
Scroll on to discover my favourite new yet timeless pieces from COS and Arket that will set you up for a very stylish 2024.
