With some exciting (and long-awaited) summer plans ahead and a vacation just around the corner, I’m finally getting my wardrobe ready for summer reemergence—which means I’m having a lot of fun shopping again for items that don’t solely consist of elasticated waistbands.
Since I’m on a tight budget, H&M has been a winner for me in terms of finding summer-ready items that not only are affordable and versatile but also look much more expensive than their actual price tags.
From chic and crisp white linen shorts to pretty dresses and sleek swimwear, my cart is already filled to the brim with pieces that will take me everywhere from backyard barbecues to the beach and al fresco cocktails in utmost style. Scroll below to see some of my favorite summer pieces that I’m loving right now from H&M. The best part? They’re all under $50, but you’d never know it.
