COS Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection

Think of COS as H&M’s older and more refined brother. He’s seen it all, done it all and looks a lot better for it (much like me and my brother – he’s younger, before you ask). COS actually stands for ‘Collection of Style’ and if their recent AW13 lookbook is anything to go by then you will know why.

The underlying theme for this collection is clean fit and sharp lines. The lapel-less suit jacket offers a nice twist to a classic piece that looks edgy but not too try hard, whilst the blue cropped jacket is also exceptionally neat, especially where it tucks in around the neckline.

The palette consists predominately of neutral colours, but autumnal shades of burgundy and forest green will help you stand out from the crowd in a sophisticated way. With this in mind, our favourite piece here at FashionBeans comes in the form of the beautifully rich forest green suit, which would look superb paired with a pair of brown brogues and a classic white button-down come autumn.

COS have always been excellent for quality essentials – those durable and versatile items you need in your wardrobe that will adapt to multiple scenarios and occasions – this collection is no different.
