This little grey jacket from COS should be it.

COS is one of those amazing stores where clothes are designed to last. They’re still trend-led, but everything’s produce with the idea it’s not disposable. No mean feat when you consider the reasonable price tags they work to. The quality is brilliant for the price point and if you’ve never ventured into a COS store then it’s about time you did.

This little grey jacket with pleated fronts is something you’ll have hanging in your wardrobe for years, it’ll be a great go-to piece. Strong enough to make a statement, but classic enough to be ever wearable. It’s a sharp and modern take on workwear if you spend your days chained to a desk, or a great piece to wear with your skinnies, white vest and your ever present huge bag. Their online store is still coming so until then I’m afraid this is an in store only purchase. If you’re a COS virgin, make this the reason you go.
