Not falling in love with the H&M August 2012 offerings is next to impossible. With a variety of uber classy ensembles that make squeezing the last bit of summer like a worthwhile endeavor, the label stuns fans and customers with the exciting perspective it puts forward. A little summer exuberance and a little autumn elegance are at the core of a series of interesting outfits worth copying. Yes, bold tones and prints are not forgotten. But the perspective shifts from vibrant and eye-catching to incredibly chic and sweet.

Practical additions like cardigans reflect the upcoming reality and the tremendous versatility that such pieces bring along with the extra interest they provide. You know how we said that you can still rock florals this fall? Well, these rather abstract representations of the trend are the perfect example of how to bring personality and sophistication to rainy season looks. You can also go for dotted pieces to maintain the cheerful allure of the sunny days without breaking the fall dressing code.

Whether you decide to take the minimalist route or want to create fabulous structured looks with fabulous proportions and bring your most flattering features into the spotlight, the label brings a variety of choices to meet your needs. Gorgeous pastels, fabulous blazers, amazing figure emphasizing belts... the covetable pieces' list is long. And don't even get us started about the fabulous arm candy options... they can easily be the definition of drool-worthy.

Stocking up on simple pieces can seem like a boring task until you see the amazing combos that can be created with them. Chic and smart have always been the attributes the label has strived for and the newest collection is the perfect illustration of the concept. With fabulous yet discreet accessories, the task of looking spectacular can easily be completed with flying colors. Feel free to draw as much inspiration as you want from these spectacular looks. The desire is completely understandable.
