There are a few high-street stores I rely on all year round, but this season, I keep coming back to H&M. My wish list is pretty varied, from its staple tailored trousers to affordable accessories, but it's the dress category that has really caught my eye. And with so many winter additions dropping in, now seems like as good a time as any to delve into the array of stylish dresses H&M has to offer.
To be honest, we would do anything for a great dress, so searching through thousands (yes, thousands) to find the best ones is very on-brand for us. And as cost per wear is important, we've made sure these expensive-looking styles that'll go the distance. Not only does H&M have standout styles for this season and beyond, but with sizes ranging from XS to 4XL, the sizing is so inclusive compared to a lot of high-street stores.
One benefit of extensive searching is there's plenty of variation among the best dresses, so every event and style is covered. Denim shirt dresses can be styled all year round, whilst little black dresses are the backbone of our wardrobes. A floaty silhouette suits milder, trans-seasonal days and adds extra comfort for those times when you need a roomier fit. Whatever style your wardrobe is missing, there's something for you in our edit of the best H&M dresses. Read on to find your new favourite.

This might seem pricey for H&M, but the quality more than justifies it.
