You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
COS, H&M’s older and wiser cousin, makes elegant, non-fussy basics that (if you’re squinting) look like they could actually be from Acne or Jil Sander. We always say that if we ever work at an office that requires us to dress up, we’d outfit ourselves in head-to-toe COS. In any event, its prices are a bit higher than H&M, but the sales are usually pretty wonderful. Case in point, right now, a whole bunch of dresses (many of which are work-appropriate and spring-appropriate) are a whopping 50 percent off. Below, some of our favorites.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best women’s jeans, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, ultra-flattering pants, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
