I always forget about COS, and I don’t know why — they’re just not among my usual visits online. I really like them, because their designs have such a modern aesthetic (and oftentimes, pockets!), and many of their pieces are made from beautiful silk (like this dress, in a color they’re calling watermelon). The brand is a little bit edgy and, this might sound weird, but — a little joyful, too. We’re featuring this dress as styled with pants in part because it’s fun to see a different look. Also, if you want to get some more versatility out of your dress or are worried it’s too short for whatever situation you’re going into, wearing it with pants is one of those old style-maven tricks that is never really trendy but never really goes out of style, either; it either works on you or it doesn’t. (I’d say if you’re tall, it’s more likely to be the former.) The dress has a wrap tie detail, pockets (hurrah!), and a hidden back zip. It comes in sizes 2–14 (alas, the 14 is sold out) and is $175.

For plus sizes: Granted, this dress has a different style, but it’s made from silk in a pretty shade of pink, is on sale for the same price ($174 from $388), and is machine washable. It comes in sizes 1X–3X.
Psst: Speaking of silk, did you catch our recent post about of Everlane’s new Clean Silk collection?
