I've Curated My Dream Spring Wardrobe at COS, Monki and & Other Stories

·4-min read

In less than a month, it'll officially be spring, and, honestly, we couldn't be more excited at the prospect. Not to backtalk winter, but the novelty of wearing a bulky coat, surplus layers, and two pairs of socks every time you step out of the house has started to wear transparently thin. Now, with the days stretching and the temperatures slowly but surely climbing, we've turned our attention to assembling our springtime wardrobes. Cut the high street, which is already serving up some impressive spring-ready pieces.

We check new-in sections daily and can confirm that the three brands leading the spring style charge are COS, Monki, and & Other Stories. While each has its own springtime aesthetic (COS is dependably minimal, Monki stays on the chic side of preppy, and & Other Stories keeps rolling out It buys), they're all equally impressive.

Featuring everything from trend-led bradigan sets and coloured leather to sartorial staples like Breton stripes and trench coats, scroll below to see the best pieces from each brand's spring collections, and shop any pieces missing from your existing wardrobe.
