Some people may overlook H&M, but knowing what to look for when shopping, you will be able to find some fantastic pieces that are both trendy and affordable, and that look more expensive than they are. What we like the best at H&M are the basics, that transition nicely from office outfit to party look or a weekend escape to the countryside. And although it is still kind of chilly out there, you can already start stocking the S/S’19 top trends for your spring wardrobe.

We paid special attention to the materials, choosing the best natural fabrics like 100% cotton, linen and crepe, that are light and fresh for the summer and give the clothes a high-end look. Most of the pieces we selected are from the “H&M conscious” collection.

So with no further ado, here are the best pieces you can find at H&M:

Summer cocktails

Because summer rhymes with cocktails and parties, we rounded up some gorgeous silk dresses. The chic sequined dresses and skirts can be worn day or night; pair your dress with a basic white T-shirt for a super cool look or with stilettos to go out at night like the party queen you are!


Out of Africa

For this Spring and Summer, you can abuse of animal prints, a trend that keeps going and going, we especially like the zebra prints. Wear two trends in one piece with the snake print jumpsuit or the sandy beige pieces that are fabulous for this season. The gold Jacquard caftan with a geometric silver pattern is one of my favourites; it is a look that is very chic for a summer night at the beach or to stay at home relaxing in style while sipping a glass of bubbly. 


French girl in town

Because we can never get enough of the French girl style, here are some garments that will give you that chic Parisian je ne sais quoi.


Casual dresses

We hand-picked many casual dresses that are the best office look for when the temperature rises; they are cute and on-trend with a loose and flowing shape that is fresh and comfortable. If your office has a strong air-conditioning, pair your breezy dress with a linen blazer for a smart office outfit.


Top of the tops

To have a smart capsule wardrobe you need basic tops that you can mix & match with pants and skirts to achieve different looks.
