5 Fall Essentials You'll Need In Your Wardrobe

#Ladylike with H&M Fall Fashion

Know what’s the best thing about being a woman? You can be feminine, delicate, and soft -- and yet you can also be independent, powerful, and strong at the same time. That is why when it comes to putting together your upcoming Fall wardrobe, stylish staples that make a subtle yet strong statement are obvious choices.

Our favourite Swedish fashion brand, H&M’s Fall Fashion campaign showcases what we look for ultimately in our wardrobes: an all-inclusive collection -- featuring floral prints, 70’s inspired cuts and floaty fabrics -- that celebrates being #ladylike in your own terms. So whether you’re quiet or loud, soft or hard, funny or serious, careful or careless (yes!)… you are your own woman and you are beautiful in your own way.

How best to communicate our #ladylike personality than through the way we dress? So take a stylish step forward and embrace your modern bohemian in cool feminine sensuality with these five Fall essentials from H&M!


A Statement Dress

Dress, SGD 39.90

If you’re looking for maximum impact with minimal styling involved, a statement dress is the way to go. This H&M dress draws attention to you in the most effortless way -- it is cut right above the ankles for the perfect length and printed in a bold medley of autumnal florals.


The Skinny Scarf

Scarf, SGD 17.90

The ‘70s skinny scarf trend, as seen on iconic rock stars the likes of David Bowie and Steven Tyler, is on a roll and we cannot be more thrilled. It’s the best complementary Fall accessory for our climate! Wrap it around your neck or your hair, or simply use it as a waist belt for a refreshed look.


Skinny Jeans

Jeans, SGD 79.90

Skinny jeans make great layering pieces for the season, and a sturdy pair goes well with almost anything from a flirty ruffled blouse to a white t-shirt-and-leather-motorcycle-jacket combo. Pair off with a pair of boots, ballet flats, pointy-toe heels, or even sneakers -- whichever that best represents the kind of #ladylike you’d like to be. This H&M pair comes with an uneven hem for that extra boost of spunk.


The Patterned Jacket

Jacket, SGD 79.90

Forget the regular plain-coloured jackets: a patterned jacket, like this pinstriped H&M piece, is the way to go to elevate your Fall look and add a little more personality without going OTT. Put this on from the weekday boardroom meetings to the weekend brunch dates in a dress or a pair of distressed denim shorts.


A Structured Bag

Bag, SGD 59.90

Opt for a structured bag that can accommodate all your essentials -- your smartphone, wallet, and your #ladylike personality (of course) -- without weighing you down. Go hands-free with this H&M piece, or remove its detachable strap to double it up as a clutch.

Stand up for the diversity of women and you may be one of 3 lucky winners to get a SGD 200 H&M gift card. Simply post an OOTD and your #Ladylike thoughts on Instagram with the caption: “I am #Ladylike because…” with the hashtag #HMSingapore before 19th October 2016.
