Know The Different Labels

Like many retail stores, H&M tends to organize its inventory in categories and departments. Its Divided line, for example, is catered to a younger audience, so it tends to be slightly more affordable and can even be relatively smaller in size. Its Studio collection is reserved for limited-edition drops and capsule collections, and its Premium Collection features a variety of timeless pieces with a premium look and feel. There are also labels such as Workwear, Everyday Wear, and Trend. In-store, they’re usually bunched together, so it’s easier to tell them apart. 

Shop During The Week

If you can help it, it’s always a better shopping experience if you can visit your local H&M during off-times, like a weekday morning. The store can get easily crowded, and in turn a little messy and unorganized on a busy weekend day. 

Browse Online

If you find shopping in person at H&M overwhelming, you’re not alone. By opting to shop online, you can browse through way more options that could possibly be carried in-store and curate your search with the click of a button. Shopping online is especially helpful when it comes to looking for deals, as it can be so much easier to sift through a page than an over-stuffed rack.

Sign Up For  H&M’s Fashion News Subscription 

Sign up for H&M’s Fashion News Subscription to get updates on new drops, sales, and more! It’s also a great resource for style inspiration.

Utilize Returns

H&M will refund most items within 30 days of purchase, whether made online or in-store, as long as they have not been damaged, soiled, washed, altered, or worn and all labels and tags are attached. This is a generous window of time to determine whether a purchase will work for you!

Try Visual Search In The H&M App

Have you ever seen something online or while out and about and thought to yourself, “I need to have that,” but can’t find the specific item? We’ve all been there. H&M actually has a Visual Search program in its app! It allows you to upload photo inspiration to find the closest thing that it has resembling said item. 

Get Rewarded For Sustainable Choices

As part of H&M’s sustainability initiatives, it rewards its members with points for making sustainable choices like bringing their own bag instead of buying one, using H&M’s Garment Collecting Programme, and choosing climate-smart delivery online at checkout. 

Shop The Sale Section

You never know what treasures you may find in the sale section at H&M. There are always new items going on sale, so it’s worth checking back often. The end/beginning of a season is likely when you’ll find the best deals.
