to shop / {sale review} COS – feb 2016

COS has a sale at the end of every season. It’s currently an extra 20% off (price as marked), which means it’s on its last leg and can disappear at any time. I rarely shop COS at full-price, especially since COS opened in the US, but they have a lot of LBDs that are well priced compared to Ann Taylor or J.Crew. Generally, I prefer to COS fit over an awkward J.Crew fit (you know what I’m talking about). I also love how there are no final sales, because I do return a lot. Sizing for lettered sizes tend to be more generous than numbers. And read the descriptions – they will indicate if it is an oversized fit.

(L to R) Sale colors may be sold out (they recycle designs and will change the color each season) and was overall at least 60% off.

  • Textured Knit Cardigan in Indigo. Love the bubble-like texture which has a little bit more volume with no added weight. It could work as a light spring jacket. Great for layering at the office.
  • Wool Dress with Silk Sleeves in Taupe. The body of the dress is boiled wool and the sleeves are silk. Good weight, especially on top of tights.
  • Layered Wool Cape in Navy. Runs big. I think I’ve finally found a cape that works? It’s unobtrusive and not too heavy.
  • Dropped Shoulder Top (not pictured). Runs big and if your office isn’t too formal, it layers well on top of skirts/pants.
