6 Trending Colours COS Is Backing in a Big Way Right Now

When it comes to updating your look, one of the easiest ways to do so is with colour. Be it pulling something bright from the back of your wardrobe and giving it a fresh outfit airing or opting for an unexpected nail shade during your next manicure, a healthy dose of colour can reinvigorate your existing wares and leave you feeling more on-trend than you did before. Of course, you needn't spend to get this fix—as I say, even revisiting an old piece can give your looks added zing—but if you are in the market for new trending colours, I know just where you should head.

Right now, COS's new-in section is full of of-the-moment colour trends, the most noteworthy of which we saw on the A/W 22 runways earlier this year. As you will well know, COS usually sticks to a minimalist colour palette, favouring timeless shades of ecru, navy, forest and black. If that's what holds COS's appeal for you, fear not; the brand hasn't deserted its penchant for pared-back hues. However, sitting alongside them, COS has well and truly embraced brighter colours for autumn

From the vibrant tone taking off on TikTok to the continuation of summer's green obsession, scroll on to see the six trending colours COS buyers have stocked up on for the season ahead. 

1. Barbiecore Pink

2. Classic Camel 

3. Bright Ultraviolet

4. Kelly Green

5. Vanilla Buttercream

6. Siren Red
