A dress and jumper from Cos

Cos collared dress with turquoise sweater

I bought this navy colour-block knit dress and a jade square-hem sweatshirt from Cos the other day. Both in the sale actually, which is brilliant. I have put a few outfits together in the pictures below. The pieces are so bold there isn’t loads you can do with them – they just are what they are… if that makes sense.

For my review – keep scrolling down past the images.

 

My review

There isn’t actually that much to say about these items, other than that I love them. I was drawn to the dress mainly because of the colour and the collar. And the sweater because i) it’s a sweater and ii) the colour. The sweater especially feels really good on, as it’s such good quality. It’s oversized, but doesn’t swamp you and the square hem makes it a really flattering shape. The arms are a perfect length (fyi my arms are really long) and the material is really springy so if you pull it over your hands (if that’s a habit you have), you’re less likely to make a hole.

The dress is great a length too. Not too long, but safe enough for the office – even with no tights. I love the simplicity of this dress, and as much as I love the contrast back, I like that I can stick a cardigan or sweater over it, and go back to a standard navy dress.

Really happy with these purchases. Worn the sweater twice already!
