The COS new in section is so, so good right now - everything I have my shopping editor’s eye on

The theme is: timeless with a twist

As Marie Claire UK’s Junior Shopping Editor, I browse through a lot of online shops on a daily basis, so naturally, I have my favourites. This season I’m planning to add to my capsule wardrobe - and the first place I look when I’m after elevated wardrobe basics is the COS new in section.

Sitting somewhere between high end and high street fashion, when browsing through COS’ new-in offering you can expect high-quality materials and timeless, structured silhouettes - often finished with a bold design twist that gives them an elevated feel.

Sure, COS has a slightly higher price point than, say, Zara or H&M, but this is definitely reflected in the quality, fit and design of the pieces themselves. Plus with spring right around the corner, the brand’s easy-to-layer basics will have your back.

Spring and autumn are hands down my favourite time to shop for clothes - there’s just something about that awkward in-between weather that makes me feel inspired to switch up my style. It goes without saying that COS’ elevated basics (which are perfect for layering) effortlessly nail transitional weather dressing.

From classic linen staples and trench coats to on-trend Mary Jane flats, COS’ new-in page is really ticking all the right boxes at the moment, so I took the liberty to round up my favourite items for you to shop - you are very welcome. Happy shopping!
