Can anyone pinpoint the moment H&M became so chic? The reason we ask is that, if you’re anything like us, when growing up, H&M was more of a post-school loitering spot than a hub of sartorial genius. Yet, somewhere between the suburban mall crawls of our youth and the e-commerce crawls of today, H&M became a bonafide it-spot for trendsetting, affordable clothing.

In our opinion, nothing illustrates this more than their new summer collection. Between their universally flattering rib dresses and ’90s-inspired tops, the new H&M arrivals are like candy to the budget-conscious fashion crowd.

To see what we mean and treat yourself to a few cool-girl summer staples, shop our H&M picks below.

My favourite T-shirt ever!”
