If You Thought These 33 H&M Items Were Designer, I Wouldn't Blame You

It can't just be me—I had to do a double-take when I saw these H&M finds becuase they're just so stunning. Perusing the site's new arrivals is a weekly (if not daily) activity of mine and on my latest visit, I came across more than a few finds that actually stopped me dead in my scrolling tracks. While these pieces fall well under the $100 mark, I wouldn't blame you for assuming otherwise.

As a fashion editor, I have a keen eye for spotting expensive-looking details and since I'm always looking at designer clothing, I can easily spot those luxe details elsewhere. And the H&M pieces you're about to see below immediately reminded me of something I would see on a luxury retailer, whether it was a forward leather-collar detail, a buttery yellow-hues sweater, or polished knee-high boots.
