H&M have really stepped up their game over the last couple of years or so, and this season, the collection is looking better than ever. Here’s some of our top picks:
OK, so at £99.99, we’re going to guess that this is probably a little more expensive than you’d usually expect from H&M. Luckily, though, the price is justified by the fact that it’s also a little more special than you’d usually expect: this dress is silk, and, from what we can see of it in the product shots, it looks to be beautifully made, with a classic shape, flowing cut, and, best of all, pockets. Gotta love a dress with pockets, right? this would be perfect for spring and summer, but if you can’t wait for the weather to warm up, it’d also look good right now, worn with heels and a cardigan.
What can we say: we love our polka dots! And our classic shirts, for that matter: they’re the perfect finishing touch to a pair of causal jeans, but they also work well with skirts, for a more dressed-up look. This one is similar to the kind of thing you’ll find from higher-end brands, but it’s just a fraction of the price, making it a whole lot easier to justify.
You can’t go wrong with a classic trench coat: or not as far as we’re concerned, anyway. We read a long debate on Instagram this week, on the subject of whether the trench coat really is a closet staple, and were quite surprised to see how many people felt they’d never have an opportunity to wear one. Thanks to the UK weather, we reckon a trench is indispensable in spring and autumn – and depending on just how bad summer is, often for even longer than that, too! This one is slightly less of a investment than some we could mention: so what are you waiting for?
