The 12 Best New Fashion Arrivals From H&M — All Under $50
Our fall wardrobes are about to be so chic this year — and H&M's latest drop of new fashion arrivals for August is proof. The clothing retailer — beloved for its wide array of polished and preppy styles that are ideal for upping your street style game and tapping into each season's biggest trends (even if you're on a budget) — just debuted its latest collection of fashion arrivals to celebrate the new month. And let me tell you: I already know you're going to see these styles everywhere this season.
From crochet halter tops and chunky sandals to cargo pants, shirtdresses, statement blazers, and even a cropped cardigan or two, H&M is fully embracing the (unsurprising) resurgence of '90s fashion trends this season — in all of their oversize, monochromatic, and straight-up grunge glory. While I'm no stranger to H&M's new-arrivals section (full disclosure: it's literally bookmarked on my phone), this particular drop has me wanting to clear out my entire wardrobe just to make space for these bold autumnal styles.
And since we're not in the business of gatekeeping good fashion finds here at POPSUGAR, I've rounded up a few of the most stylish pieces worth shopping from H&M's August arrivals — all inimitably chic and (bonus!) under $50. Read on to browse the selection!
Classic Cargo: H&M Straight Cargo Pants
Your eyes aren't deceiving you — cargo pants are back, as confirmed by the feeds of TikTok and the surge of supermodels who have been spotted in the style. We're not complaining — in fact, we're even more eager to embrace the pants trend thanks to these H&M Straight Cargo Pants ($35). This relaxed style is crafted with a cotton twill material, making it equally comfortable and sporty!
Office Attire: H&M Satin Wrapover Shirt Dress
Who says polished office wear has to be boring? Whether you're looking for a flattering work 'fit or a sexy business-chic style to wear to any postwork activities, this H&M Satin Wrapover Shirt Dress ($30) will help you make a statement in any room. Plus, it's available to shop in a multitude of patterns and colorways!
Slip Into Knit: H&M Knit Cardigan
Nothing says transitional wear quite like a knit cardigan — especially if it's as charming as this H&M Knit Cardigan ($40) style. Unlike other knit pieces, this look features a breathable crochet look — complete with a front-button design and a structure-giving ribbed collar. We're loving the playful nature incorporated into an otherwise conservative style!
Soft and Stylish: H&M Corduroy Pants
Forget corduroy overalls or jackets — these H&M Corduroy Pants ($35) are what we really can't stop eyeing this month. The style is composed of a buttery corduroy material that's as soft to the touch as it is stylish. And the decadent dark-teal coloring helps to cool down the pants with such a unique autumnal flair.
A Closet Essential: H&M Ribbed Tank Top
Your closet simply isn't complete without this H&M Ribbed Tank Top ($11) in it. While the style is more muted than other tank tops, it also serves as the perfect piece for layering — especially in the fall. Dress the ribbed tank down with a relaxed jean jacket or elevate it with a colorful blazer for the perfect office outfit.
Business Chic: H&M Double-Breasted Jacket
Blazers have had a pretty big moment all year — and the unrequited love for the style is expected to continue well into the fall. We're loving the look of this H&M Double-Breasted Jacket ($35) in particular. Beyond the oversize silhouette, we're equally as obsessed with the delicate pink coloring that's perfect for tapping into the Barbiecore aesthetic.
A Platform Shoe: H&M Chunky Loafers
Take your transitional-shoe game to new heights (literally) with the help of these H&M Chunky Loafers ($40). The bulky shoes are crafted with a satin lining and patterned soles. And the woven gold hardware across the foot elevates the style with a more '90s-infused vibe.
Dressy Denim: H&M Denim Shirt Dress
Move over, denim pants — denim dresses are the real style essential in our book. And this cropped H&M Denim Shirt Dress ($30) proves it, thanks to the piece's straight-cut silhouette and snap fasteners at the front. Best of all: the dress is available to shop in four different washes.
Polished Patterns: H&M Short Cardigan
We had no idea that a cropped cardigan could be so cute — that is until we saw this argyle H&M Short Cardigan ($18). The style pays homage to the prep aesthetic with its symmetrical and eye-popping design — though it's also available to shop in three solid colors: brown, beige, and orange. Whether you're pairing it with a classic pair of denim or dressing it up with a pleated skirt, the cardigan provides so much style versatility.
A Flirty Frock: H&M Crêped A-Line Dress
Tap into your wilder side with this H&M Crêped A-Line Dress ($35). The zebra-print frock is crafted from a woven viscose fabric that's as breathable as it is chic. I'd love styling this look with a statement bag and knee-high leather boots for a more finished fall ensemble.
A Breathable Blouse: H&M Halterneck Top
Your summer-to-fall wardrobe will seriously benefit from having this H&M Halterneck Top ($18) in it. The breezy top is available in two colors: light beige and black. From brunch to the beach and beyond, this halterneck blouse has so much style versatility.
Fall Friendly: H&M Fine-Knit Cardigan Dress
We have total heart eyes for this H&M Fine-Knit Cardigan Dress ($50). The plush style is so versatile — with a front-button design that allows users to wear the look as either a plain maxi dress or a bulky cardigan. Whether you're styling the cardigan dress with sneakers, platform sandals, or even heels, the dress can really go with anything.
