We Looked Through 100s of H&M Dresses to Find the 27 Best

Ama makes her knitted slip dress work for an autumnal night out by adding a blazer and barely-there heels.

There are a few high-street stores I rely on all year round, but this autumn, I keep coming back to H&M. My wish list is pretty varied, from its staple tailored trousers to affordable knitwear, but it’s the dress category that has really caught my eye. And with so many autumn additions dropping in, now seems like as good a time as any to delve into the array of stylish dresses H&M has to offer. 

To be honest, we would do anything for a great dress, so searching through hundreds to find the best ones is very on-brand for us. And as cost per wear is important, we’ve made sure these expensive-looking styles that’ll go the distance. Not only does H&M have standout styles for this season and beyond, but with sizes ranging from XS to 4XL, the sizing is so inclusive compared to a lot of high street stores. 

One benefit of extensive searching is there’s plenty of variation among the best dresses, so every event and style is covered. Denim shirt dresses can be styled all year round, whilst little black dresses are the backbone of our wardrobes. A floaty silhouette suits warm, transeasonal days and adds extra comfort for those days when you need a roomier fit. Whatever style your wardrobe is missing, there’s something for you in our edit of the best H&M dresses. Read on to find your new autumn dress. 

One word: Wow. 

Because pink is the colour du jour.

This elegant style will look so stylish with heeled mules and a blazer. 

If you thought this knit dress was designer, I wouldn’t blame you. 

Ready and waiting for party season. 

Just add knee-high boots and a trench. 

Yep, I’m planning ahead because there’s no way I’m letting this beauty get away. 

I want to copy and paste this whole look straight into my. wardrobe.

This sleek bodycon dress also comes in vibrant red, if you dare. 

It’s always a good time to add some classic like a denim shirt dress to your wardrobe. Add knee-highs and a knitted vest to this to make it work for autumn.

This luxurious style can be worn with chunky boots and a shearling jacket.

I’m fully in love with this tasseled number.

How beautiful is this? I’ll wear it with statement earrings and my favourite heels this festive season.

This dress got the whole Who What Wear team talking this week. We just can’t get enough of it! 

Wear this in the evening with strappy sandals and a killer clutch.

This maxi has such a beautiful, floaty shape to it. 

I just know I’ll get so much wear out of this shirt dress, which is from the brand’s premium collection.

I’m seeing this with a sleek tailored coat for the office.

This is such a great all-rounder. Wear to the office, drinks with friends or to a winter event.

This green has stolen my heart, and the cut-out detail is the cherry on top. 

Ok, I am obsessed with this retro-style square-necked dress. I can wait to wear it with sequins now and sandals come summer.
