29 Cheap H&M Thrills That Happen to Look Really Expensive

expensive-looking H&M items


H&M; Pictured: H&M Crocheted Dress ($60)

It can't just be me—I had to do a double take when I saw these H&M finds because 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. 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 an exposed-back dress, a buttery yellow-hued shirt, or woven leather slides.
