modern classics

I must say that I have been very pleased with H&M’s quality lately. You get great value for your buck and their modern classics collection has several great items for work. This entire outfit is from their recent collection and I see myself wear this suit for years to come. Both the jacket and the matching pants come in four different colors. You can get this suit for about $60 which truly is hard to beat. The fabric is light making it perfect for the transitional months, plus the added spandex and rayon gives the garment a very comfortable feel making it so perfect for an all day office wear. You can watch my first impression on this suit HERE.

The classic stretch shirt I layered underneath retails for just under $20. If you are a working woman you can never have enough crisp white shirts or tops. They are such elegant layering pieces and work well not just with suits and skirts but you can quickly polish up a casual jeans look with them.

    Would have never guessed this was from H&M – fabulous.

    I would not have guessed that was from H&M either! The last couple things I’ve bought from them, though, have been fantastic in quality as well! I’ll have to go on another little shopping spree there this weekend. :)

    Modern classics in a great beige suit. I cannot believe this is H&M. I need to check out this collection at the H&M by me. And I do love their classic stretchy button-down shirts.
