Stylist Mikaela Hållen’s Top Picks From The H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection
We asked our contributing editor Mikaela Hållén to style her favorite garments from the H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection hitting stores today. Here they are, styled on the lovely Niyat Girmay and Bonita Classon and shot by Pauline Suzor.
What do you like the most about the new H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection?
– I’m happy that it for the first time includes jewelry that are made of recycled silver, it could be silver from your grandmas old candle holder! I love that.
Which are your favorite pieces?
– Definitely the green statement earrings as they’ll make a jeans-and-tshirt-outfit look a bit extra. And of course, the bossy flower dress–I’m longing to wear it going out this summer. Another piece that I really like is the black see-through pant–you have to see it IRL to understand what it is all about.
What is your best tip when it comes to building a long lasting wardrobe?
– Stop impulse buying and try to save money for that one piece you know you will cherish for a long time. Quality over quantity is key! Also, invest in comfortable basics–we all know that they are the pieces we wear in the end of the day anyway.
