My Best-Kept Secret for Shopping Spring's Biggest Trends on the Cheap

I don't know about you, but I never like spending a ton on trendier items, no matter the season. Since I'm never certain if they'll remain in my closet for a few months or a few years, I like to play it safe and be a savvier shopper by sourcing a few of my favorite trends on the cheap. What I mean by "cheap" is that I'll usually avoid spending much more than $100, but it's even better if I can find pieces for much less than that.

Enter H&M. If you ask me, the retailer is checking all the boxes this spring, and its selection is so good that it's inspired me to do nearly all my seasonal shopping in one place. A few scrolls through the new-arrivals section confirm that billowy poplin dresses, puff-sleeve tops, relaxed denim, ribbed tanks, linen blazers, and more of the trends on my wish list abound. So without further ado, I'm highlighting the best spring H&M clothing and even providing a little inspiration on how I plan to wear each item and each trend. Happy shopping, friends!
