14 of the best minimalist sale buys from Arket and COS

14 of the best minimalist sale buys from Arket and COS

Summer sales have hit, but we’re keeping our sights on these perfect basics from COS and Arket


If you’re trying to refine your wardrobe and summer style, look no further than the high street heroes of minimalism, Arket and COS.

Clean lines, even cleaner colour palettes and plenty of comfort (though not at the expense of style) are these brands’ raison d’etre, providing us with a much needed oasis from the often overwhelming maximalism elsewhere on the high street.

Going back to basics is just what your wardrobe needs every once in a while to regroup and focus on what you really enjoy wearing. And yes, that may be an OTT top with loud colourful print – but wouldn’t it look so much better paired with a perfectly tailored pair of jeans?

Basics are the backbone of a wardrobe, and these elevated options from our two favourite luxury (without the pricetag) stores are some of the best we’ve seen.
