The Only H&M Pieces You Need to Know About This May

As a fashion editor, I spend hours upon hours online shopping (for professional purposes, of course), so I know all the new-in sections like the back of my hand. The one high-street store I'm most impressed with right now? H&M, as the new collection is packed with expensive-looking, "Where did you get that?" pieces.

You may have once thought you can only head to the more expensive Conscious collection for more premium picks, but there are mainline pieces that look just as luxe. My trick to finding the best buys is to shop in the trend section of the site, which has all the items that will inevitably become Instagram famous.

Wearing the sellout Conscious Exclusive minidress, Matilda toughens up a pretty summer frock with chunky boots. 

Nabilah Kariem Peck wearing the H&M maxi shirtdress. Raffia accessories are all she needs to complete the look.

Karina styles the sellout yellow shirtdress with classic scrappy white heels. It may be sold out online, but we're under good authority that there are some left in certain stores—if you're quick!

Lauren Arthurs styes the new-in Conscious dress made partly from recycled polyester with statement jewels. 

The site is filled with hidden gems that'll hold a forever place in your wardrobe, along with some pre-summer buys to invest in now. The influencers are snapping up statement dresses, and we've found shoes, bags, co-ords (and more) to create a cool new season capsule just for you.

These are the hero buys that look way more premium than their price tags. Keep scrolling to shop the 28 editor-approved pieces.
