I Get Excited About New Releases—These H&M and Zara Items Will Be Hits

I scroll through a lot of retail sites every day as I'm doing market research for various stories. What excites me most? I love finding new releases at go-to shops and uncovering the special gems that could become wardrobe staples. And this season, the new arrivals at H&M and Zara are particularly strong.

The offering at both retailers is full of pieces that could become front-runners in many wardrobes. I'm talking about pieces with saturated hues and modern tailoring, for instance, that are in line with this year's top fall trends. For those of you who want to stick to the basics this fall, Zara and H&M also have a range of elevated, highly versatile staples like loose jeans and cute cardigans. So if you're looking for a bit of shopping inspiration, keep scrolling to check out the new H&M and Zara items that I think will be big hits this season.
