The $100 Challenge: How To Get A Hot H&M Look On A Budget!

Some people get a power suit to bring out their confidence, but I’m all about the power dress.  H&M is one of my favorite stores for basics, but I always find a chic dress or dressy item whenever I least expect it. I’m not only a big fan of the styles sold @H&M, but I even shopped there & stuffed my suitcase while I was in Italy in January.  Just take a look at the ensemble below, which rings up for under $100 (before taxes)!

Black & white is a my favorite color combination (as seen in my previous Color Me Style post) & it’s extra special here punched up with some gold accessories & sparkling splash. The dress ($34.95) can go from work to happy hour with the transformation of a blazer for some bangles, but I love the simplicity & possibilities that this dress offers.  The shoes ($34.95) add some texture to this mod look, but they can also be worn under your favorite trousers & a cardigan, or with any LBD for a hot date night.  To accessorize, I’ve selected the necklace ($5.95) which is also available in silver, if you are looking for a way to frame your face with the right kind of neckline.  The 3-pack rings ($6.95) compliment the animal-inspiration in the shoes, but also bring out the black details of the dress. To finish it off, the sparkling bag ($12.95) is spacious & flirty for any evening occasion & is also sold in white.

The total for this look comes to $95.75! How would you style this dress? Where would you wear it? Which metallic hues do you prefer as a neutral? For more posts from The $100 Challenge, including Freida Pinto’s all-black ensemble, fall must-have accessories, & Olivia Wilde’s LBD! Happy Styling!
