I’ve Assembled 5 Impressive Workwear Outfits Entirely From COS

As soon as your alarm goes off for another day at work, the last thing on your mind is having to put together an outfit that is as fashionable as it is functional, and just like that, it’s easy to slip into the habit of rewearing the same outfit formula on repeat to save yourself some valuable minutes of waking up time. Sound familiar? You aren’t alone. And once the dreaded “style rut” sets in, it can be difficult thinking of what to wear to work that will comfy, commute-ready, and most importantly, chic, but thanks to COS, I’ve just found the solution. 

Workwear clothing needn’t be drab pinstripes, ill-fitting tailoring and uncomfortable court shoes, something that COS know all too well (in fact, I even wore COS on my first day in the Who What Wear office). With the new season in sight, there’s no reason you can’t embrace all of the colours, textures and silhouettes of spring in way that’s also also office-appropriate–enter COS’ brand of understated, timeless pieces that toe the line between workwear foundations and everyday essentials. We’re talking wide-leg trousers, oversized shirts, refined co-ords, and plenty of polished accessories. 

In order to help take the stress out of your daily routine, I’ve assembled 5 easy desk-to-dinner outfits from COS that still keep your off-the-clock style in mind in order to make the most of every piece in your wardrobe. Thankfully, most workplaces have a more casual dress code (and any time we can wear jeans is a bonus), so you can mix and match pieces from the below looks for your office outfits, weekend plans, and even after work drinks, so you needn’t worry about having to carry a change of shoes. Our edit also pays close attention to outfit elevating accessories like smart handbags and a trusty pair of loafers that will go with just about anything, so, keep scrolling for every new-in piece a fashion editor would buy now from COS to build countless workwear outfits. They’re every bit as good as they sound.
