Admittedly, I used to overlook H&M, but now it's up there as one of my favourite affordable brands. I find that its clothes and accessories don't tend to date as quickly as other high-street brands and that the quality surpasses its affordable price tags. In fact, seldom does a day goes by where I'm not wearing a piece from H&M—and it seems this will continue well into summer, too.
Earlier this week, upon conducting my daily new-in section check of H&M's website, I couldn't help but notice that all of the pieces I was adding to my wish list were not just seasonally appropriate, but each item was also £30 or under. And now that I've safely snapped them up for myself, I've decided to share these style steals with you, too.
From holiday-ready swimwear that looks significantly more expensive than it actually is to the perfect dresses for sashaying around the city in, keep scrolling to see my edit of the best fashion editor–approved H&M buys…
