There's an art to finding the most expensive-looking pieces on the high street, but certain stores make the process a lot easier. The Scandis in particular know precisely how to create affordable items that instantly look and feel elevated. H&M's new A/W 18 collection has landed online and in stores, and it doesn't disappoint in this department, but what's also interesting is that there's a little something for every possible personal taste.
You'll find plenty available for the girls who spend 90% of their time at the office (hi there, smart coats, checked trousers and midi heels), heaps for those on a mission to smash through the season's trends ('70s faux fur, corduroy and heaps of brown guarantee it), and plenty to choose from if your wardrobe revolves around casual gear (think pretty printed dresses that are perfect for wearing with sneaks). There are loud items (sheer lace tops) and quiet ones (snuggly jumpers). No matter if you're an extrovert or an introvert, if you're simply searching for winning pieces that look way beyond their price-tags, we're pretty sure H&M has your corner.
We've edited the most upscale, wallet-friendly items and assembled them into outfits because we know how much everyone appreciates a quick fashion fix.
1. VINTAGE MAVEN
If there's one thing we can tell you for sure this autumn it's that brown is the new black. Everything related to this colour spectrum and the decade it is so associated with (the '70s, what else?) is available and works together seamlessly.
2. MODERN BOHEMIAN
There's a cool way to make every vintage-style dress look automatically more appropriate for 2018: Just add sneakers. This throw-on formula will have your back for brunch, for work, for travel and every possible smart-casual opportunity in-between.
3. WORKING GIRL
Looking for a way to spice up your office wardrobe? Then we'd highly recommend adding red shoes to your classic workwear separates.
4. PARTY POWERHOUSE
Lace and mesh tops are really having a moment, with many girls choosing them instead of party dresses for a night out. Wear yours in the most sophisticated way with smart trousers and sleek extras.
