It's no secret that we love designer duds, but that doesn't mean we shop high-end brands exclusively. In fact, we love a good bargain, and we're not afraid to mix high and low brands together to create our own unique looks. (On that note, check out the $35 flats that everyone will be wearing come summer. Then read up on the 10 Zara swimsuits we're shopping for all of our upcoming beach and pool days.)
Seeing as it’s almost Memorial Day Weekend, we think it’s officially time to gear up for summer by refreshing last year's hot-weather wardrobe. In order to do so, we're turning to some of our tried-and-true (not to mention budget-friendly) favorites—namely Zara, Mango, and H&M. But before we buy, we're taking inspiration from fashion-savvy bloggers. Keep scrolling to see the 16 Zara, Mango, and H&M items fashion girls have given their blessing to.
H&M Dark Blue Patterned Wrap Dress ($30)
This floral wrap dress basically has the words "summertime brunch outfit" written all over it.
H&M One Shoulder Flounced Bodysuit ($35)
The black bodysuit is currently out of stock, but luckily, this burnt orange shade is still available.
H&M Wide High Jeans ($40)
These wide-leg jeans are the perfect length and wash for pairing with all our summer tees and tanks.
H&M Leaf Patterned Wide Leg Pants ($50)
The solid green lines that run across the legs of these pants keep them from veering into rumpled sleepwear territory. We think they'd look especially sophisticated when styled with strappy sandals and gold jewelry (or the matching kimono).
H&M Short-Sleeved Shirt ($18)
It's no secret that we love a good leopard-print piece, and this short-sleeved shirt is the best budget-friendly way to indulge. Its short, boxy shape looks modern and breezy.
H&M + Snakeskin Patterned Top ($10)
Just like leopard print, snakeskin is also on our summer shopping list. Pair this tee with jeans, a miniskirt, bike shorts, or a bright maxi skirt (like blogger Erika Aguilera does).
Mango Cyclist Bermuda ($50)
Our love affair with bike shorts is far from over. Snag this powder blue pair for all your summer weekend outings.
Mango Leather mini bag ($60)
This leather mini is the perfect size for your phone, keys, and credit card—the daily essentials.
Mango Fringed Detail Knitted Skirt ($70)
This knitted skirt is the perfect piece to throw in your suitcase for weekend trips. The intricate knit texture pairs perfectly will a simple white tee and strappy sandals.
Mango Button Textured Blouse ($40)
This apple green sleeveless blouse is so versatile—it can go from the office to dinner and beyond.
Mango Knot Shirt ($46)
This collared shirt is a wardrobe basic that will pair well with jeans, chinos, shorts, or a midi skirt.
Zara Asymmetrical Printed Top ($50)
The one-shoulder design, puff sleeve, and draped neckline are giving us serious '80s vibes.
Zara Slip Dress ($50)
Everything about this yellow gold slip dress is perfect. From the cowl neck to the slightly flared hem.
Zara Plaid Cropped Top ($40)
We love puffy sleeves and we love plaid, so naturally, we love this cinched crop top.
Zara Floral Print Dress ($50)
This light green color is flattering on all skin tones. Do as Danielle from We Wore What and layer it under a sweater or wear it alone once the temperatures rise.
Zara Flared Pants ($70)
Revamp a neutral closet with these flared pants that come in a bold shade of yellow. White shoes aren't required but they're surely encouraged.
