No Regrets: Top 5 COS Mid-Season Sale Buys / by Cathy Carey

How many times have you bought something on sale, taken it home and thought: 'What on earth am I going to wear this with?' If you're like me, it's more times than you can shake a pair of glittery 6-inch T-bar platforms at. But not all sales are created equal, and though some might seem stuffed with doomed-to-be-discarded items, COS is one store that's usually pretty easy to find wardrobe mainstays in during the sales. There are reasons for this:

1. The fabrics are pretty good quality, and long-lasting
2. The clothes are timeless: COS reinvents it's clothes just subtly enough season after season that I've often rediscovered pieces a few years old that slot right into my current wardrobe. And finally,
3. The Price is Right: If you can't afford it full price, hit the sales!

Bearing all of this in mind, below is my pick of 5 items in the mid-season sale that you won't regret buying come the weekend:

Cotton jumper, 48 euro. Light enough for Spring, and great with colours and neutrals
