Minimalists Take Note: These Are the Best Spring Dresses From COS Right Now

Fashion-wise, summer can be a tricky time of year for anyone who doesn't love floral prints and boho silhouettes. However, thank goodness for brands like COS that cater to those who prefer to keep things simple when the mercury rises. It might not feel like it yet, but spring is just around the corner, so we've started checking out the latest dress drops on the high street, and we can confirm that, as per usual, COS will be the go-to for the minimalist fashion lover.

A quick glance at its new-in section shows that the brand is sticking to what it does best: clean-lined, versatile pieces that come in trend-led colourways. The shirt dress seems to be a key style for spring 2021, whether it's rendered in rigid denim or cropped at the knee in colour-pop tangerine. Carrying on from last year's success, the throw-on smock remains a highlight, but this year, it comes in the form of subtle pleating, which offers a more unusual, asymmetrical silhouette.

Dresses over jeans was also a notable styling hack from this season's runway collections, and we can imagine layering many of COS's new-in dresses over flared leggings and wide-leg jeans. It's all about creating textural contrast and playing with complementary hues—Think a silken orange maxi over dark-blue jeans or a black shirt dress over split-hem trousers. So if you're looking for a new dress to kick off the spring season, scroll down to shop the COS styles we're loving right now.
