H&M Has 738 New Arrivals—This $40 Top Is My Favorite of Them All

As fashion editors, sometimes we have to sift through hundreds of items online before we land on one that's perfect for the story. Other times, however, retailers make it easy for us by churning out clothes that are the perfect combination of trendiness, practicability, and price. And that, my friends, is what happened when I spotted the H&M Quilted Blouse ($40). No, this isn't sponsored in any way—I'm just want to share when I see a great piece that I predict will sell out in a hurry. 

The top is one of over 700 new arrivals, but it stood out to me for a few reasons. For starters, it's the perfect fall version of summer's biggest trend: puff sleeves. Instead of the gossamer versions designed for warmer weather, this updated iteration features a cool quilted design. Plus, I love the ties at the back of the top as well. Scroll down to shop the sure-to-be-best-seller and browse other chic quilted pieces.

Long live the puff sleeve.



The back details are just as pretty as the front.

Shirt + jacket = shacket. This one is a particularly stylish one thanks to the quilting. 

Don't forget the matching skirt that's easy to wear with tights and boots. 

I'm picturing this with brown riding boots in the English countryside—but anywhere will do. 

How beautiful is this cherry red Bvlgari bag? 

Reversible jackets are a fantastic two-for-one. 

Pool slides, but make them fashion. 

Yes, you can (and should) wear white after Labor Day. 

This jacket is one of Free People's top sellers because it's so comfortable. 

Army green is such a classic, foolproof color. 

Proof that you can stay super warm while staying stylish.
