These Summer Dresses from COS Are a Minimalist’s Dream Come True

Go scandi for summer.

Last Updated on March 11, 2023

If florals aren’t a part of your summer wardrobe, you’re going to love the minimalist selection of COS summer dresses on offer this year.

Swedish brand COS is known for its streamlined silhouettes that make anyone look effortlessly polished. Think Céline (Phoebe Philo era) and Rejina Pyo, but a little more forgiving on your purse strings.

While we’re just as crazy about colour and pattern, we can’t deny that minimalist dresses have a subtle allure and elegance. Sometimes, less really is more – and H&M’s more sophisticated sister-brand is eager to prove it.

The pieces from the Scandi brand are current yet timeless, so you can definitely get away with wearing the pieces well into autumn and winter — with layering, of course.

There are lots to choose from too. So whether you prefer streamlined cuts in neutral colours or bold pops of colour in your wardrobe, you’ll find something that suits your style.

Among our favourites are the A-line slip dresses, a roomy shirt dress in khaki, and a halterneck midi. Here are 15 of the best COS summer dresses you can buy now.
