With Christmas almost here, it seems like sparkles and sequins are just about everywhere. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that (we love a good sequin ensemble ourselves), but it’s nice to know that there are other partywear options available which focus less on glitter and more on understated glamour.
Enter COS, the high-street label we turn to for contemporary, minimalist partywear pieces that look way more expensive than the price tag indicates. COS has always been known as a go-to for modern wardrobe staples and timeless basics that will last for seasons to come, though this year the brand has definitely stepped up its occasionwear offering.
From feathers and silky fabrics to interesting appliques and luxe velvet, COS has elevated the concept of party dressing far beyond your average sequin dress. And better yet, the majority of pieces are all available for less than £100.
