Is it just me, or is H&M nailing it right now? During my latest scroll of its new-in section, my eyes were boggled trying to keep up with top-notch buy after top-notch buy. My liked items skyrocketed in number, and by the time I was finished, I had roughly 30 pieces in my auto-generated wish list. Of course, this is ridiculous—I haven't and would never buy a "haul" of that magnitude. But I swiftly saw that the pieces I liked best tended to fall into one of nine product categories. This realisation is enough for me to summarise that these nine pieces are the best H&M fashion items this season.
What are these nine pieces, you ask? For your viewing and shopping pleasure, I've listed them for you below, section by section, along with the items on my wish list populating it. Perhaps I'm biased, but I think the strongest finds from H&M always err on being classic and timeless, the sort you can pull out of your wardrobe each year and not feel passé. However, with a few on-trend aesthetics thrown in for good measure—here's looking at you, checkerboard prints—it feels like the perfect autumn/winter 2021 capsule.
Scroll on to see the best H&M fashion items to buy right now.
