As everyone from Chanel to Chloe pointed out during Resort season this year, oversize is the new fitted. For people who don't have the change to drop on designer labels, Cos is bravely offering up a plethora of fall/winter garments that hit the trend dead-on.
There are massive coats, sweaters that fall to mid-thigh, and dresses that land at the knees—all interpreted in a vaguely soothing, drably futuristic palette of gray, tan, navy, olive, cream and black with pops of mustard, chartreuse and sky blue. These are clothes that say, I can be this office's dour fräulein if need be. It's advanced stuff; no fashion novices allowed.
