We don’t really know what we’d do without H&M. It’s one of those high-street heroes you can always rely on to come through for you—whether you’re looking for expensive-looking coats, work-appropriate wide-leg trousers, everyday basics or even homeware. And while we often spend a lot of time here highlighting the trendiest H&M items, like the latest designer collaboration or cult pieces, today we’re here to focus on the more versatile basics that have just landed on site. They’ve still got H&M’s stylish mark, of course, but also that particular wardrobe-staple quality that means they’ll fit into your favourite outfit formulas effortlessly.
There are A+ items like classic denim cuts that could be dressed up or down and easy-to-style knits perfect for layering right now. There are also expensive-looking finds like slouchy blazers (similar to the one pictured above) that can elevate an outfit on its own or be worn with the coordinating trousers, which can in turn be teamed with your favourite top and jacket.
To showcase our favourite versatile H&M pieces, we’ve curated an edit below. Keep scrolling for shopping inspo and links.
