34 Items From H&M, Madewell, and COS That Give “I Shop at The Row” Energy


(Image credit: COS)

Due to the nature of my job, I spend a lot of time analyzing runway shows and scrolling through images of the exceptionally dressed on Getty and Instagram. Because of these tasks, I’m able to look at a page of new arrivals and sort through which kinds of picks stand out and are comparable to the stylish items the most fashionable would outfit themselves in. For example, my most recent internet search has consisted of Harry Styles and Taylor Russell matching in The Row. Thus, my market search led to items that could create such looks at a more affordable price point.

Rather than gatekeep these finds, I figured I’d share them in case anyone else is looking for specific pieces for spring that encapsulate the look of an expensive wardrobe. In this case, they’re from COS, H&M, and Madewell specifically. The new arrivals from these three retailers have been impressing me the most as of late—the proof is in all the links I’ve been sharing with my team, family, and friends. (Just yesterday, I shared a satin top from COS with a friend looking for something to wear for headshots, and she immediately purchased it.) In this roundup, you’ll find elegant flats, simple yet striking midi dresses, and elevated trench coats. Barrel-leg trousers, leather crossbody bags, and mesh sandals will also make an appearance—basically, everything that would be alluring to those who stalk the fan-made The Row Instagram accounts daily. Keep scrolling to shop.
