Simple. Monochromatic. COS.
January 16, 2014
Perhaps city life is going to my head, but I think I might be turning into one of those grey- and black-loving urban folk. That color-obsessed girl who was revolting from a decade of an entirely neutral, solid-colored wardrobe for a job at Pottery Barn, has found herself once again being attracted to that simple and chic way of dressing in monochromatic hues after moving to Berlin. It might have something to do with wanting to become one with my grey surroundings, or maybe there's something to city-dwellers propensity to keeping a streamlined wardrobe amidst the bustling life all around them. Calm in the middle of the storm, you might say (not to mention much less closet space).
Whatever the reason, I must admit to falling deeply, madly in love with COS. I'd only ever ventured into one of its shops once before and since I wasn't immediately drawn to anything, I kind of forgot about it. But after spending some more time perusing the racks and trying things on here at the shops in Berlin, I couldn't fight its undeniable, urban appeal. The pieces are modern, simple and colors like grey and black account for most of the store. I've already managed to snag that wide roll-neck top and gold oval earrings, but I'm sure I will be back soon enough to further citify my wardrobe.
