Trust Me—These H&M Buys Are Going to Dominate This Spring

As you know, H&M is one of the best high-street stores for, not only identifying trends, but starting them. After a very successful winter season, in which more H&M cult buys were born than ever before, if it's latest drop is anything to go by, the high street hotspot looks set to continue leading the affordable style charge into spring, too. 

You need only browse a few rows in its new in section to be presented with just about every spring/summer 2021 trend going—at least, the ones that most suited to this time of year. 

From the season's must-have top and elevated loungewear to expensive-looking accessories and a £10 outfit upgrader, there are so many ways you can refresh your wardrobe without having to website hop. Keep scrolling to shop the H&M trends 2021 has in store.

1. RIB-KNIT CARDIGANS

Cardigans continue to reign supreme at H&M this spring, and a commonality the best ones share is ribbing. Choose between sculpted or oversized cardis—they each tick off a different knitwear trend. 

2. WIDE TROUSERS

Wide-leg trousers are one of the biggest trends of spring/summer 2021 and, naturally, H&M is already leading the charge with its edit of loose trousers. 

3. PARED-BACK BOOTS

All too often, the high street overcompensates on its affordable boots, adding unnecessary details to make them more interesting. However, H&M's current edit of clean boots is one of the chicest we've ever seen from the brand, and will help carry you through the remainder of the cold months. 

4. SHADES OF PINK

Pink is set to be one of the top colours to wear this season, and is already making an impact on H&M's new-in section. The must-have item has to be its powdery jumpsuit, which will beyond cool paired with chunky trainers. 

5. CUTE COLLARS

H&M's accessories are always impressive, and this season is no exception. From bucket hats to sunglasses, the brand has so many ways to update your look for less. Our favourite? These collars, which you can layer over your favourite knitwear, dresses, or jersey tops. 

6. SECOND-SKIN TOPS

Body-skimming jersey, mesh, and knitted tops have cropped up in the new season collections of high-end and affordable brands alike. Tuck one of these frugal options into high-waist trousers and finish with minimal accessories for a premium feel. 

7. MINI SKIRTS

Mini hemlines are making a splash on the fashion scene this season, and H&M already has some of the best options out there. Wear with opaque tights and chunky loafers for maximum It-girl appeal.
