The COS summer campaign is a reminder of the stores cool take on core basics. I decided to inject my closet with a fresh round up of classic neutrals, specifically tops and bottoms. Trousers have been on my radar and I kept my focus on everyday style. An ecru pleated linen pant has a great fit (also in navy) and a black tapered trouser is elevated enough to wear straight through evening. A pair of easy pull on shorts serves multiple purposes with a tank, sweater or unstructured jacket. I also got a pair in navy. The linen tank is a great fit and looks more polished than one in cotton. At $25, I picked up all three colors. Texture adds interest to three of these great, versatile tops – a crochet knit vest, embroidered poplin shirt and terry cloth pullover.
One of the things I like about COS (this is not a sponsored post) is the minimalist style that works well with other brands. The sophisticated silhouettes have a the look of upscale designers at a fraction of the price.
