Okay, so maybe no one likes spending money, but some people aren't necessarily frugal, and in case you are, well, do we have the shopping roundup for you. There are certain pieces in your wardrobe that we would advise putting a little more of a long-term investment behind, but others don't carry the same weight, e.g., plain T-shirts, knitwear, leggings, and a few others.
Ahead, we're bringing you one of our favorite places to shop for cheap basics—H&M. Starting at just $5, you can stock up on wardrobe necessities at the prices you love. Enjoy a cringe-less shopping experience as we break down the best affordable basics at H&M according to seven different categories.
Layer these or wear them as a going-out top when the weather is being agreeable. When it comes to camisoles, there's no need to spend above your means.
If you're going to skip out on spending a lot of money on denim, make sure you opt for black versus a regular blue wash. Black jeans tend to look expensive no matter what while cheap blue jeans can look, well, cheap.
Especially when winter hits, you can go through sweaters at the speed of light. H&M has a great selection of easy and affordable knitwear that looks like you paid way more than you did for the product.
Leggings are officially the most basic basics of our time, and we're so glad that they are. Luckily, H&M has a great selection of leggings ranging from workout-appropriate to cotton and so on and so forth.
