With the prevalence of pumpkin-spice everything and Insta-worthy foliage, it's clear that fall is in full swing (even if we're still waiting for temperatures to really drop). You've likely got a trip home for the holidays booked, and there are plenty of festivities on the itinerary that require outfits to match. That includes dinners with extended family and drinks with old high school friends, so a chic, versatile holiday wardrobe is definitely in the cards. Think of this as the perfect opportunity to give your personal style a refresh with cozy yet stylish closet staples you'll wear well beyond the holiday season.
Below, we've handpicked 15 must-haves from H&M to ensure you'll be the best dressed at any hometown gathering. Keep scrolling to shop our top picks—while they last.
If your hometown turns into a winter wonderland for the holidays, this faux-shearling outerwear is a must-pack. Pro tip: Wear while traveling to stay warm on the flight and eliminate suitcase bulk.
We love a party dress that's as opulent as it is wearable—not to mention easy on the wallet—and this velvet style checks all the boxes. Add statement earrings and heels to go all-out glam, or team with crisp sneakers and a denim jacket to stay chic and comfortable by day.
Puffer jackets are this season's street style staple—if you haven't yet jumped on this outerwear trend, here's the exactly where you want to start. Galactic silver is super on trend and makes a statement (while being surprisingly versatile).
Channel a '90s grunge look with this easy-to-wear flannel, that's just as cute paired with distressed denim as it is layered over a lace-trimmed slip dress.
This bodysuit can be dressed up or down, and quickly eliminates that annoying question of just how much to tuck. We love the metallic detail paired with high-waist denim as our fallback outfit for any festive occasion.
Millennial Pink? Still trending. Treat this super-soft knit as a neutral. Best of all, it practically feels like pajamas—perfect for lazy days at home with the family.
There's nothing like a faux-fur jacket to add a sartorial wink to any outfit. Throw this bold piece on over even your most casual lounge-about-the-house basics and you're ready for drinks with the girls.
Get that vintage denim look without the sloppy fit: Between the black wash and expert distressing, these jeans lend a subtle rock 'n' roll vibe to any ensemble. We love them with a boyfriend button-down to give our tailoring an edge.
This lightweight sweater is like the basic white tee of fall and winter. Half-tuck into high-waist denim or throw on over a miniskirt to balance this season's over-the-knee boots.
Rugged yet totally pulled together, this parka may look like classic outerwear, but its super-soft padding offers the coziness of a snuggie. Ideal for homecoming tailgates, post-turkey hikes, and everything in between.
In no-brainer black, the subtle yet tailored details of this slightly cropped sweater are what gives it an elevated "Who makes that?" appeal. Add black wide-leg pants for the world's most comfortable parent-appropriate look.
Replace those tired leggings with these stretchy jeans for a more presentable—and just as relaxed—vibe. The ultra-high waist is perfect paired with all the '70s-inspired floral tops we're currently wearing on repeat.
We're pairing this shimmery slip with a thin black turtleneck for family affairs. Top it off with leather moto jacket,and upgrade your flats to chic boots to make your look cocktail-worthy.
Try this silky-sleek parka in an of-the-moment berry hue in place of your go-to trench. It's functional and lightweight, guaranteeing you'll be reaching for it come every change of season. (PS, we currently can't get enough of exposed asymmetric zips.)
We're all about layering during the chillier months, and this jewel-tone top makes it easy to prolong the wear of all those breezy summer pieces. Wear over a silky mid-calf skirt or dress, and add knee-high boots to create a seamless fall look.
