Working at Who What Wear gives you a sixth sense about the products that will be sell-outs—it’s practically in our job descriptions to find cult items that are actually worth investing in the moment they land on new-in sections. One item we think is destined to be hugely popular this summer is a £59 T-shirt dress from COS. Not just because this effortless piece ticks all our boxes for a wardrobe hero— easy, comfortable and chic, but also because it was a sellout last year as well (so you could say we’re kind of cheating with this one). This season, COS has cleverly doubled down after realising our collective love for a simple but impressive piece and brought this dress back— in new colours too.
The dress has an oversize fit and falls on the calf, with boxy shoulders and slits on the side of each skirt. And it’s now available in five chic shades to suit your taste— cream, black, lilac, brown and a teal blue.
Somehow COS manages to make even boring basics desirable with its focus on cut and proportions. This is basically just a very big T-shirt, but the premium fabric and oversized uncomplicated shape makes it an elegant, easy item to wear for any summer plans. I’d pair it with chunky sandals (I’d go for a pair of leather fishermans), a gold chain necklace and an oversize tote bag ready for any summer picnics.
