With H&M's usual quirkiness and their kitsch statement pieces, this new drop will not fail to deliver.
Here are my top tips and how to wear:
Body-Con Colour block Dress - £14.99
When I saw this statement, eye catching number, I loved it. Still channeling the very sexy, body-con trend, H&M have now incorporated some serious and rather clever, colour blocking. Using a very smart technique that has used black strips at the sides, with a diamond shape down the torso in white, drawing the eye in, and away from any lumps and bumps you might have- CLEVER!
Nice use of colours here, taking this dress for evening solely, go for a more edgier version and team with some heavily buckled platform heels, vintage leather jacket and finishing with some bad gal eyeliner, really rock this one out.
You could also calm this one down and keep it slim-line and simple, by teaming with a longer length blazer, neat padded clutch and carefully place large cocktail rings to bring definition - letting the dress do the talking.
Nude Kimono - £24.99
I shall be wearing this with practically everything: teaming with super skinny, original blue denim jeans, with some killer, pointy stilettos, Large, statement, link chain necklace - I'd want to make the kimono the key point to look at here, keeping everything else slim-fit and neutral.
This is my necessity buy, and wardrobe friendly. We all know the success of the maxi - whether you do it floral or whether you keep it plain - you must get this striped version - with again, very cleverly placed stripes, coming in at all angels, this is slimming, working the Parisian trend, please team this during the day with a cropped, rough looking denim jacket, and some gorgeous metallic strapped sandals, work it for the evening, bejeweled shoes, with some heavy gold, chain link jewelry.
Silk Shirt - £29.99
Another very luxe piece for H&M - 100% silk and with the effortless style seen on the catwalks, this is as versatile as they come. Ideal for layering and with the soft neutral hue, this ideal for all those pastel shades you have OD'd on this summer.
Teaming with some beautiful high shine leggings or leather leather trousers for an evening look, with black, patent, criss crossed heels, and a statement Mawi black necklace, Or my preferred option: for day, teaming with the dulcet khaki tones of some rolled up hem shorts, super strappy flat gladiator sandals, metallic gold bikini underneath, with the shirt loosely opened until the navel with a straw hat and aviator sunnies... ahhhh Beach it up baby!
Cat Cropped top - £17.99
Well, what's there NOT to like?? I love cats, and I the love the loose cropped t-shirt style top... yes, I love this. Uber cute, and just a little sickly with it, I cant wait to use this piece as many times as I can with as many different pieces. First look will have to be teamed under some 3/4 length denim dungarees, with some mega pastel colour brogues and broches ahoy - this look just wants to be different - so let it!
Effect culottes - £24.99
Stripe Crop Top - £9.99
I couldn't resist putting this one in, whether I would dare to bare, but at £9.99 I just have to have it! This one is for the truly adventurous out there, wear it bare, with super skin tight high waisted short - think leather, or for the lesser adventurous and more tummy conscious, layering under a sheer jacket or top, contrast in colour and make sure the stripes stand out to effect. Work the underwear as outer-wear trend. This is also good for any smaller chested women out there as the stripes will make you appear slightly fuller.
Clogs - £34.99
Chain Necklace - £14.99
Not much to say, other than I love this - good, versatile, statement necklaces are hard to come by and when you find them - you buy!! BUY THIS!
Hope you all enjoy, there are lots of other products in the new July range, have fun picking out your faves.
Until next time....
