As you know, H&M is a great place to find trends that you don't want to spend a lot of money on. As you also know, it's also a great place to shop for basics that look more expensive than they actually are. And while a diverse wardrobe is wonderful, if you want the ease of shopping for an entire outfit (or seasonal wardrobe even) all at one place, you could certainly get away with it at H&M.

So where to even start? I find it easiest to build an outfit around a particular trend, adding on whatever basics best complement it. Easy to do at H&M. And currently, it has tons and tons of on-trend pieces for summer, from tiered dresses to sweatshorts to tangerine orange. Keep scrolling to shop the trends and the H&M basics that best suit them.

This pretty printed top works so well high-waisted shorts and flats.
