Connie Wang, global editor — H&M
"I always underestimate H&M's seasonal sales, and find myself, mouth-agape, in the aisles just flabbergasted at how cheap the items that I've been wanting to buy all season actually are. Take for instance, these printed trousers — I've been making a point of stopping by H&M since spring to pick up a few pairs. And now that they're all under $20, I went absolutely bonkers (additional brocade, floral, and checked pairs, not shown). The mohair sweater gave this look a slightly '50s feel and is made with the fuzziest, softest yarn. Additional surprise discounts were taken off at the register, and I was left with a $18 surplus that I could have used to "splurge" on a necklace or a clutch...or — let's be real — another pair of pants."
"Though this dress and jacket are definitely from H&M's spring collection, there's something really subversive-feeling about wearing pastels during the winter. I'd wear these with glittery tights and boots to my holiday parties paired with obnoxious rhinestone jewels. And fine — I went over $3, but these clip-on rose earrings were too cool not to get."
