I’m no stranger to a splurge, but like most people, I like saving my money. Whenever I’m in the mood for fashion that’s on-trend and affordable and that won’t break down in one wash, H&M is like my home base. As a faithful shopper of the brand, I can also say that the quality has greatly improved over the years. Add to that its growing commitment to sustainable materials, and I really can’t find a reason why I’d shop elsewhere.
It’s not uncommon for me to do mid-season hauls from the store on my own, but this time, I was able to take a few new arrivals for a test-drive as soon as they hit the site. And if you’re well versed in the language of H&M, you’ll know that all the brand’s best hits are only available as online exclusives. I scrolled through and uncovered a bunch of pieces I eagerly wanted to try IRL, including some seasonal knit staples and a few funky bits that really caught my eye.
