Try And Other Stories - they do a lot of similarly boxy/clean shapes but their colour palette is a bit broader, more greens, blues, reds and pinks.

I think Cos are quite good at colour. I've just ordered There are loads of peachy things on there at the moment.

Just a suggestion - look at some French websites, or Swedish

I personally don't understand this washed out and colours thing. And the English have been condition a bit to the only way is Essex etc.....being pale isn't a bad thing.
When I go to Paris I see very few girls with a tan or a fake tan and many wear camel and black and look great
Failing that then a little blush? Your redish hair would look great against black
Just my opinion and I am no art grad!

They actually have a much broader palette than just dishwater - pinks, peaches, blues, greens etc. I agree it's easier to find in store than on the website though. I'd be happy if it were all black, charcoal, navy etc because there are often lovely things in colours I can't (or don't want to) wear.

I was in Cos the other day and was pleasently surprised by the colour range. I only wear autumn colours so black white and navy are no good, but they had some lovely greens and quite a lot of blush, rose and rust colours. My current favourite top is a drapy jersey top from there in a gorgeous rust colour (I think its described as crimson on the website but is definitely not crimson). I think their website is terrible and would only ever buy something that I tried on in store (short and curvy so unfortunately very few of their things fit me)

Kennington please do you have names of Swedish or French websites ?

Hello - garence dore is one example for the French although am pretty sure she has moved to the U.S. Anyway no fake tan there
I am stumped and cannot remember the Swedish name but I did a random Google and there are plenty of pasty girls wearing black
Emmanuelle alt also comes to mind
