I'm Predicting H&M's Next 31 Cult-Favorite Pieces

H&M Most Popular Pieces for Summer - New Arrivals



Even if your clothing budget only allows for one new item the whole summer, I want to help make sure your purchase is the best one you could possibly find. And, of course, if you're lucky enough to be able to invest in multiple pieces for the new season, I've got you covered there too. After predicting Nordstrom's next big hits last month, I've now set my sights on H&M since I know our readers love to shop there too. 

It can be overwhelming sifting through a retailer's vast selection. Right now, H&M has 1014 dresses, 893 tops, and 204 shorts in stock. But you don't have to look through all of them, because I just narrowed down the pieces I believe will become top sellers. With seven years of fashion-editor experience under my belt, it's safe to say I know the makings of a big hit. Scroll down to shop my 31 favorite pieces and learn why I love each one. 

You can never have too many white dresses. 

Smocking is a huge trend right now and this charming top is a great way to test-drive the look. Plus, it also comes in classic black. 

This affordable bikini top also comes in baby pink, yellow, and light green. Shop the matching Bikini Bottoms ($6) or Brazilian Bikini Bottoms ($13). 

This top is very Brock Collection (without the Brock Collection prices). 

Meet the perfect white tank top. 

Thanks to the puffed sleeves and pointy collar, this isn't your average denim shirt.

This comfy crochet dress is begging to be worn all day long. 

This charming off-the-shoulder top also comes in a sweet pale yellow.

I dare you to find a $35 skirt that looks more expensive than this beaut.

When it comes to the puff-sleeve trend, why not go big?

Just add a pair of white denim shorts and you're the epitome of summer style.

Picture wearing this dress sipping piña coladas poolside in Mexico. Even when you snap back to reality, it's still a worthy buy for summer weekends.

When you already have a virtual cart full of pieces, you'll hardly notice the addition of this $3 tube top.
