If there’s one thing I love about H&M, it’s their collection of autumn winter dresses. Whether you’re looking for a sweater, shirt or party dress, you’ll find one at H&M, without fail. And their latest drop for the new season has come right on time.
To save you from scouring through hundreds of options, I thought I’d do the hard work for you by sharing the styles on my wish list. As we know, H&M is one of the most affordable brands on the high street, so out of all 9 dresses I found, only one is over £50.
Autumn is officially here, and while we’re still having sunny days, it will soon be time to do the big wardrobe switch and to start wearing warmer layers. I love a good jumper as much as the next person, but I refuse to stop wearing dresses in winter. Instead I’m opting for knitted dresses, and I’ve found a couple that will work for everyone.
But winter also means party season, so I’ve thrown in a beautiful sequin dresses, as well as a couple of shirt dresses and formal styles. If you like these, you might want to check out H&M’s new AW23 Studio collection too.
