H&M

For affordable clothing that looks much more expensive than it is, H&M is one of our go-to high street brands. With a deluge of new arrivals recently hitting the site, we scrolled through hundreds of pieces looking for the best summer dresses and sandals, as well as statement-making skirts, co-ords and blouses.

Thankfully, H&M's new-in section doesn't disappoint. Full of capsule wardrobe heroes and on-trend pieces, the high street label's latest collection has everything from maxi dresses and laid back linen styles to a brilliant range of summer footwear and bags.

H&M Wedge-Heeled Espadrilles

£35 at H&M

It's officially espadrilles season, and these beauties are a must buy. Their wedge heels add a bit of height and we love the long cream straps that tie securely around you ankles. They look much pricier than their sub £35 price tag, too.

The ultimate pretty cotton dress, we've been ooh and ahhing over these little puff sleeves with broderie anglaise and ruffled cuffs. So much so, that we'll be buying it in black, red and yellow. If you love broderie anglaise, you'll also be lusting after this cream dress as much as we are, but most sizes have sold out.

H&M Flared Trousers

We're big fans of the 70s-inspired co-ord trend, not least because it's an excuse to wear glam pyjamas all day. These geometric, gently flared trousers are top of our shopping list right now, teamed with the matching oversized shirt. The same print also comes as a satin wrap dress.
