My Friend Wanted My Thoughts on What to Buy at H&M—I Said These Pieces

H&M is often a go-to shop for many given its wide arrange of items, including basics and trend-driven pieces. In fact, one of my good friends considers the retailer to be one of her staples when she’s looking to add a few fresh items into her wardrobe. On that note, she recently asked me for my thoughts on some of the new H&M items I’m personally loving that she might be into as well.

I ended up texting her six key pieces that I think could work well given their versatile and forward nature. Essentially, I think the edit could pair quite nicely with other basics in her closet. Intrigued? Keep scrolling to first check out the six items in question. I also pulled out a range of other items that could pique your interest as well.

A knit polo is a modern staple that’s incredibly easy and chic.

Very into the idea of teaming said polo with the coordinating trousers as well.

The fit here is A+—the perfect item to elevate jeans and a tee.

A quilted maxi coat is comfortable and cool.

Love the idea of using this dress as a layering piece over trousers or jeans.

Gorgeous—everything from the slouchy silhouette to the color.

Knit vests are still trending hard.

New jeans, anyone?

A knit skirt is cozy and elevated.

Shackets are still all the rage.


The back here is quite striking.

Such a fresh color.

And now picture these joggers with the above dress.

Make a statement on those Zoom calls.

The wrap detail is very pretty.

Bring texture to any ‘fit.

The longer silhouette is great. Add a pair of leggings, and you’re set.

Another solid pair of loose jeans.

Wear this dress with everything from sneakers to boots.

Just in case you’re interested in a solid pair of biker shorts.

A sweatshirt dress to wear on its own or over pants.

So cute.

Polished and sleek.

An white button-down shirt is no-fail.
