I used to love H&M a while back because it was one of the most affordable stores in Budapest which had trendy things as well. However, after a while my love started decreasing. Of course once in a while they had some nicer things as well but overall not the brand where I can go in to break my bank account. And this is true for all of their designer collaboration as well. I won’t really care about brand names if I like something.
Having said all of these I checked their latest offerings mostly because of curiosity. And as I’m not the biggest fan of their standard line I was looking at the Trend, Premium, L.O.G.G. and Conscious sections. It’s still not my favorite but I have to admit there are some nice basics which can worth to check or buy there.
So lets see what I found:
Outerwear and dress:
I have to say I’d buy this leather jacket in a minute if there wasn’t the price tag. I mean, ok, it’s soft nice leather and pretty trendy fit but 200 quid? I think it’s quite a lot which is just enough to hold me back. This bomber has a nicer price though and I like the shorter fit and the quilted sleeves.
Light weight lyocell trenchcoat. Somehow I like the idea of having a flowing lyocell coat but I’m not sure how protecting can it be against rain. And dress with nice grey color and a twist on the material which makes it anything but boring.
Again shorter neutral tops with long sleeves especially the grey one with the short, scalloped hem.
Basic white t-shirt and not so basic top which can add that bit extra to a basic outfit.
Oversized, loose pants with high waist.
Shoes and bag:
Again, basic black suede shoes with pointy toes but the first one with heels for a more elegant touch.
Golden ballerina shoes with high vamp and a pretty simple straw basket which is ideal for summer and very trendy right now.
And now the outfits from these items.
So if you want to buy simple but good basics then try H&M as well. They have some nice things and most of the time their prices are unbeatable.
PS: Sorry about the crappy pictures, they are from H&M’s website and I’m not sure why are they so shitty but I guess they’re better than nothing. 🙁
