Who can resist a fast-fashion frenzy at trend-mendous, well-priced H&M? Now you can get equally wallet-friendly garments that look a little more grown-up at the brand’s sister label, COS, which just opened a boutique in Beverly Hills.
This is the first U.S. location of the Swedish store (the name is short for “Collection of Style”), and we’re grooving on its minimalist aesthetic, which recalls Céline (but at a fraction of the cost). Here are the three items that guarantee you’re fall ready.
Pastel Coat Love this trend but don’t want to invest big bucks in a hue that might forever say “2014”? This structured, zippered boiled-wool coat ($250) is well priced as well as super-pretty.
Caped Wonder Always wanted a cape but thought it would be hard to wear? This combination blazer cape ($190) has delicately draped fabric sewn over the sleeves but a structured layer to keep it close to your body. (Read: You won’t look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow.)
White Top The EMT of crisis dressing, a white shirt is always elegant. Long sleeves, back buttons and a raised silk collar make this guy ($79) totally now.
