There are few things you can get for less than a hundred bucks these days, let alone $50. Haircuts, tanks of gas, groceries—it all just keeps getting more and more costly, especially when it pertains to clothing. And though there are several pricey pieces in mind that I'd be willing to spend my money on (I'm talking to you, Ganni puffer that haunts my dreams), there is still something comforting about knowing we can all find affordable fashion from high-street labels like Topshop, H&M, Mango, Zara, and the ilk.
Today I'm focusing on London-based label H&M because lately, they've been killing it. I rounded up 21 clothing and accessory items that are a mix of wardrobe staples you can mix and match with everything to more trend-forward pieces that don't feel like knockoffs, but rather, unique additions to your closet. Scroll down to shop the picks I'm writing home about (aka putting on my Christmas wish list) and snag your favorites before they sell out this season.
