You might say I have a vested interest in H&M’s 2021 Holiday edit insofar as I’m currently toying with the idea of booking my first ever ski trip, but you don’t have to hit the slopes to appreciate this line of winter staples.

Bringing together crisp and cool outdoor shapes and inviting styles, you’ll fins a dichotomy of practical outdoor wear as well as sumptuous party wear.

There are nods to mountain-side life with puffer-jackets, protective boots and fair-isle prints while the apres-ski party scene comes through in party dresses, tailored trousers and beaded detailing.

Key pieces include the cable-knit dress and the deep-v sequined dress. Pieces are designed to be dressed up or down; with floaty, long silhouettes, wide-leg tailored trousers, and chunky knits, as the versatile stand-out styles. Accessories include cross-body bags and statement bold sunglasses. Shoes are both practical and party-ready, with chunky lace-up boots and statement heels adaptable across the collection.

The colours are generally muted and soft toned, namely silvery greys, blues and black, with bolts of cherry red adding vivacity to the overall feel. The collection is composed of more sustainably sourced materials; with a selection produced entirely from recycled materials. The collection will be available in-store and online at hm.com from 18th November.
