27 Cosy Winter Buys From COS, Massimo Dutti and Arket

I have two goals right now: to be cosy and look chic in the process. However, these two things don’t typically go together. In fact, finding pieces that tick both of these vital boxes can be tricky, as, typically speaking, they’re not made with each factor being given the same amount of consideration. As such, I’ve been searching far and wide to find items of such ilk, not only to show you but also to populate my own wardrobe with. In doing so, I found there were three brands in particular that I kept coming back to: COS, Arket and Massimo Dutti.

Although they all have different aesthetics from one another, it’s clear that Massimo Dutti, COS, and Arket have, respectively, gone to great lengths to curate winter wardrobe staples that are elevated and cool and will keep you warm for the next few months. Populating the collections are shearling pieces that strike the perfect balance of being statement but not overdone, impressive knits that will pep up any look and a plethora of polished separates you can layer as you like. Of course, they tap into some of this season’s biggest trends and looks, but I truly believe the pieces you’re about to see are the sort of thing you’ll come to rely on for years to come. Scroll on to see my pick of the best COS, Massimo Dutti and Arket winter buys. 

Maybe the best teddy coat I’ve ever seen. 

If your life is lacking in loungewear… 

…this is the chicest set going. 

Knee-high boots have never been more in-demand. 

This roll-neck comes in so many great colours. 

My favourite high-street blazer now comes in beige. 

Such a strong shade. 

Because everyone needs a pair of gloves to navigate winter. 

When Arket does slippers, the outcome is as good as you’d expect. 

Breton jumpers are one of the season’s biggest knitwear trends. 

It’s simple—I need this scarf. 

Is there anything more elegant than a cape? 

I’m a huge knitted-dress fan, and I’m seriously considering investing in this style. 

For those who still daydream about that Khaite knitted bralette. 

Update every winter outfit you wear with combat boots. 

I’ve never met a cable-knit jumper I didn’t like, but this one is especially good. 

I’d like to wear this entire outfit, please. 

The subtle sheen on this top makes it perfect for parties, too. 

Call off the search—I’ve found the ultimate shearling  jacket. 

Another roll-neck I currently have my eye on. 

Wide-leg jeans to carry through into 2022.

These will look great with minidresses and skirts. 

Checked outerwear never dates. 

I’m in love with this shade of green. 

You’ll struggle to find a toastier top than a leather shirt. 

Tailoring, but make it woolly. 

I can’t wait to wear this dress with burgundy boots.
