Off the Rack: November Offerings at H&M

Earlier this week I popped into an H&M store to check out the latest fall/winter offerings, where I was greeted by lots of cozy sweaters, cardigans, coats, jackets and all the accessories you could ever want to stay warm and stylish. While I love H&M, sometimes it's hit or miss - but this visit was all hits. Lots of the sweaters were buy one get one half off and the styles felt soft and warm, not scratchy and flimsy. There were tons of on-trend coats, too, from military-inspired, to animal prints to the all-important shearling aviator, a fall must-have for 2010. Oversized camp shirts, lace embellished cocktail dresses, lace-up ankle boots and messenger bags made me wish I could scoop up one of each. I left empty handed because I had a train to catch but I'm going to head back for a Burberry-inspired scarf, some suede gloves and a couple cocktail rings that are still on my mind.

Click through for more photos. Have you bought anything at H&M recently?

I love H&M, but I just can't stand the way the stores are organized... I tend to get super frustrated by just trying to find things. :-(

This is perfect! Thank you! I've been meaning to go check out the new arrivals at H&M but haven't found the time to, and now I can see them here. I'm loving the nude blazer and military pea coats.

i recently bought booties from h&m as well.. very simple ones in cognac, and super affordable at $24.95.

Love HM!! However make sure you don't represent all the shoes the mannequins are wearing as items you can purchase at an HM store. I have often asked where to buy the mannequin's shoes at HM and have been told they are not HM items. In fact at the store in my area, the mannequins are hardly ever wearing HM shoes!

Everything looks so cute! For some reason I can never find anything at the H&M in my area.

Oh how I wish I lived closer than 4 and a half hours from the nearest H&M. That messenger bag would be mine.
