5 Expensive-Looking Pieces I'm Wearing From H&M

Recently, I traveled to Palm Springs with H&M, where I learned about the brand's new influencer initiative, The League (more on that here), but was also outfitted in some pieces from the brand. Not only did I have the chance to meet H&M's new fleet of influencers to see how they were styling pieces from H&M themselves, but I also snapped photos of some of the H&M outfits I was wearing during our time in the desert.

With warm weather top of mind, I incorporated some of the upcoming summer trends into my looks with pieces ranging from animal-print miniskirts to utility jackets to bike shorts—all priced under $100. Go on to see how I’m wearing the H&M outfits and shop each of the looks. Then, see and shop my edit of H&M pieces from the latest arrivals that are sitting in my shopping cart.

The moment I saw this zebra-print mini skirt from H&M, I knew I had to order it. While it's priced at $80, it looks like a much more expensive piece. Paired with one of the brand's basic black tees, it's an outfit I'll be wearing all season long.

There's no reason to invest in pricey T-shirts when H&M designs the perfect basics.

The draping details really make this skirt feel special.

I've been experimenting with the biker shorts trend. I've been wearing them to the gym for ages, but I'm still testing out looks to wear them IRL. My go-to outfit? Cycling shorts with a cool blazer or utility jacket like this one.

While the version I wore already sold out, I found another similar style you can still order from H&M. It's taps into the utility trend that's huge this season.

Tried and tested, these H&M cycling shorts are a must.

I've been very ready to embrace warm-weather outfits so I've been swapping out my jeans for shorts. This pair of paper-bag shorts is high-waisted just like I like them.

Next time I'll be styling them belted with a crop top and blazer.
