24 Cheap H&M Items That Look Expensive

On a recent Zoom catch-up, one of my friends expressed interest in adding a new piece or two into her wardrobe to freshen up her offering. The key point is that she didn’t want to spend more than $50 tops. I told her to check out H&M given that the mega-retailer stocks a wide range of cool yet affordable pieces—everything from classic basics to trendy accessories to forward ready-to-wear pieces.

In fact, I actually already had a cart full of H&M items because I pulled out some standouts to recommend in another story I was working on. Basically, I thought an of-the-moment tank, a puff-sleeve blouse, and white jeans would work best for her—and collectively all hit below that $50 budget when added up.
