26 Expensive-Looking H&M Basics With Glorious Reviews

Shopping for basics is admittedly not the most exciting thing in the world, but they're some of the most important wardrobe purchases you can make. And since you wear them so often, you also are likely to need to replace them more often than other items in your wardrobe, which means that you might not want to spend a lot of money on them either. Enter H&M.

You may first think of H&M as a source for trend-led pieces, but we're here to tell you that the brand also stocks amazing basics. We love the selection of denim, T-shirts, blazers and tanks, in particular, but there's something to fulfill any and every wardrobe need. It's typically easier to find expensive-looking basics than it is trend pieces, as solids neutral colors and simple silhouettes tend to be less expensive to produce. You certainly get your money's worth with luxury basics, but when you see how expensive-looking some of H&M's basics are, you might as well save your precious cash.
