H&M Holiday 2010: Top Picks

Here's a look at some of the top picks for women from H&M's Holiday 2010 collection, hand-picked by Ann-Sofie Johansson, H&M's Head of Design. My favorites have to be the bombshell red evening gown, sleeveless reptile print cocktail dress and sheer long black skirt that can be paired with a sexy corset top or cashmere sweater, depending on where you're heading.

If you want to try something a bit out-of-the-ordinary, opt for a tuxedo jacket with tailcoats, which can go Uptown over a lacy dress or Downtown with jeans, a printed T-shirt and bright red high heels. Hair accessories add a special twist; look for sequin and feather pieces plus beautiful jewelry to finish any look or update your favorite LBD on a dime.

Some of these pieces are already in stores with more coming soon. And of course, don't forget the collection hits stores in the U.S. on Saturday, November 20!

I love, love, love the blush colored dress. So fantastic for the holidays. I only wish they had an H&M where I live :-( or at least offer online shopping!

The red dress looks prettier on your website!
I saw it at H&M, the Broadway location.. and wasn't too impressed. It looked pretty plain.. I know most of H&M's clothes are like that but for once I wished their dresses hadn't looked so functional! lol. But there were some gorgeous lace dresses.. and I saw this one military inspired jacket, with beautiful embroidery in gold stitching.. cropped navy blue jacket.. I think it was around $130-has anyone seen that?! It's beautiful..

I think I saw the jacket you're talking about, it's really unique and eye-catching! Like something a matador might wear. Photo here:

I LOVE the red dress worn by Du Juan in their Holiday 2010 campaign. Only $9.95! I called H&M, but they said the dress won't be available until Black Friday. I have my husband's high school reunion to attend that day, and I really wanted to check out that dress!

The tuxedo jacket is amazing; totally evokes Marlene Dietrich in Morocco for me. I can picture all sorts of confident, assertive women wearing it. this is the scene to which I am referring ^^
