I’ve had one of those weeks where I hate my wardrobe and absolutely everything in it. Just this morning, I was trying to find something to wear to work and 45 outfit changes later (and an extremely messy room), I sat on my bed sulking because nothing looked good. I came to the conclusion that a) I just need better lighting in my room and b) I need to build up a few more basics — especially ones suited to this weird not cold, but not hot weather Melbourne has been slinging us lately.
If you know the feeling all too well, H&M Australia (the home of basics and staple pieces) is offering customers 50% off all women’s, men’s, kids and baby sale items online and in-store. Members will also receive an extra 10% off the sale. So, get your cart locked and loaded while stocks last.
Here are a few examples of what’s on offer, folks.
This cute shirt jacket is made from lighter woven fabric, making it the perfect coat for that neither-here-nor-there weather I mentioned earlier, which is why it’s going straight into my cart. It also comes in four other colours if neutrals aren’t your style.
I remember when these used to be reserved for grandma-core and grandma-core only, but now I can’t imagine my work wardrobe without a knit vest. They’re not only perfect for going over shirts for some extra warmth, but they also look great under a blazer. Win-win and hard to pass up at $16.99.
No one should go through an Aussie winter without at least one warm puffer for those days the wind or rain strikes. This one features a lined, drawstring hood and a stand-up collar, as well as a two-way zip and a wind flap with concealed press studs down the front. Pretty neat for under $50.
It’s 2023 and I’m petitioning to bring back the humble cardigan. From providing extra warmth in your cold air-con-ridden office to being a great extra layer under a trench or jacket, it’s the perfect trans-seasonal staple.
It’s almost boot season. Outside of being a really stylish staple under your work pants, they offer great coverage from puddles and the rain. This particular pair also comes in a tan colour and a shiny black.
Everyone needs a nice, tailored blazer in their arsenal. You never know when you need to pull out the big guns for a client meeting or a fancy dinner. This one is suitable for both.
Offering a super relaxed fit with covered elastication, a concealed waist drawstring and a mock fly, these shorts are the perfect lounging attire that can easily be dressed up for casual day wear.
I don’t think there’s ever a time you can regret buying a hoodie. Whether it’s to wear in bed, to the gym or under a jacket with a beanie in the name of ~fashion~, these babies are as versatile as they come. This particular style also comes in seven other striking shades if cobalt blue isn’t in your personal colour wheel.
