Every Item on My H&M Wish List Just So Happens to Be Under £30

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 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…

You'd never know this pleated midi was under £30. 

Use these to elevate your summer dresses. 

If you don't want to spend lots of money on the wide-brim hat trend this season, start here. 

Who needs designer sunglasses when the high street creates styles as beautiful as this. 

These shorts will look the part with a white blouse or an oversized blazer. 

Try layering this dress over a Breton stripe top. 

The ruffle-detail on this shirt is lovely.

Yellow is summer's must-have hue, and this top makes for an ideal first-purchase. 

Wear this skirt with a striped shirt for the office. 

A beautiful addition to any straw-bag collection. 

This bikini looks significantly more expensive than it is.

This set also comes in a pretty floral print. 

I've tried this on and can confirm it's even better IRL.

This midi skirt will look so chic with tan sandals and a white linen shirt. 

White sandals have become a bonafide summer staple. 

This billowing blouse will also double-up as a gorgeous beach cover-up. 

Wide-leg jeans look excellent with broderie and espadrilles. 

Get double the wear out of this swimsuit by styling it with a skirt overtop. 

Belted skirts always look chic. 

A new way to channel braided textures this season.

If you haven't already, it's time to add a gingham dress to your wardrobe. 

Shirred tops are still all the rage right now. 

Wear this with the matching top for maximum floral impact. 

The cushioned sole makes these sandals a dream to walk in.
