Hollister Back-to-School

Hollister Co., a division of Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE: ANF), and the global teen brand celebrating the spirit of an endless summer, is partnering with TikTok stars Charli and Dixie D’Amelio and Noah Pugliano for its new back-to-school campaign – leveraging the platform that has rapidly grown in popularity among its teen audience.

Charli, Dixie and Noah will serve as the brand’s “Jeanealogists”, together with science educator and television personality Bill Nye. The trio’s “experiments” in Hollister’s Jean Lab, led by Bill Nye, determined the science behind the brand’s perfect denim fits. This content will be featured across Hollister’s social channels and in store. Every aspect of the jean fits were tested and approved by Charli, Dixie and Noah, alongside other teens, to ensure they make teens as comfortable and confident as possible through features like smoothing pockets, curvy fit styles, new soft stretch fabrics and more.

“The ‘jeanealogy’ experience was amazing for us because Hollister has always been one of our favorite brands. We’ve been buying their denim for years and even borrowing each other’s. We loved being able to perfect our favorite denim and share it with everyone else,” said Charli and Dixie. Charli and Dixie’s favorite jean fits, which they hand-selected and marked with their official “stamps of approval,” will be featured in stores and online starting today, July 16.

As part of the partnership, Charli, Dixie and Noah are also launching the #MoreHappyDenimDance – a TikTok challenge choreographed by Charli that encourages users to celebrate comfort, and to share their “happy dance” when they slip into the perfect pair of Hollister jeans. Hollister fans who participate in the challenge will have the chance to be selected for a virtual meet-and-greet with Charli and Dixie.

“We are thrilled to partner with Charli, Dixie, Noah and Bill, as they combine the excitement of TikTok with the nostalgia that our teens love,” said Kristin Scott, President, Global Brands at Abercrombie & Fitch Co. “This is the start of a longer-term relationship with Charli and Dixie, both of whom share our passion to spread positivity and build confidence among teens – especially during the uncertainty that surrounds this year’s back-to-school season. Additionally, as one of Hollister’s original brand agents in 2017, we are excited to have Noah on board for an even more robust partnership.”

Throughout the fall, Charli and Dixie will also be participating in various Hollister digital activations, in-store shopping events, and more.

How to Pick the Right Jeans for Your Body Type

Read on to learn about the different types of jeans to make the right choice for your body type, style, and budget here.

A whopping 450 million pairs of jeans are sold every year in the United States alone. 

With so much denim on the market, it can be tough to decide which types of jeans you need. Indeed, different styles of jeans will flatter different shapes and sizes. What looks best on the mannequin might not suit your silhouette. 

We’re here to help you with that. Here are the best types of jeans for each body type. 

Boyfriend Jeans

Let’s start with a comfortable favorite — boyfriend jeans. 

This style is meant to be slouchy and baggy as if you borrowed your beau’s denim for the day. 

For the most part, boyfriend jeans flatter athletic or apple shapes. If you do opt to wear them, pair your pants with a more fitted top to balance out the bagginess of your jeans. 

Bootcut Jeans

Bootcut jeans fit closely in the thighs and hips but flare out around the ankles. This style elongates the leg, but that’s not all. The added fabric at the bottom can balance out curvier hips. 

That’s why bootcut jeans look especially great on hourglass figures or pear-shaped wearers.

Take your bootcut jeans to the next level by pairing them with a heeled bootie or pump. They’ll elongate your legs even more effectively this way. 

As for your top, you can wear just about anything with bootcut jeans. They’re so versatile, which is why they keep coming back into style. 

Flared Jeans

Perhaps the bootcut style isn’t enough of a statement for you. You’re in luck — you can wear flares instead. 

They provide you all the same benefits as a bootcut pair of jeans. They elongate your legs and balance out fuller hips. Pear and hourglass figures look particularly incredible in this jean style. 

However, you do have to make sure you don’t overwhelm your silhouette with massive flares. As a standard rule of thumb, have yours tailored so that they just graze the floor. 

You can make them even more flattering by pairing them with heels, which will make your legs seem longer. Then, slip into a billowy 70s-style top or a tighter tee to show off your hips. 

Mom Jeans

Mom jeans fit high on the waist and accentuate your hips and bum. They then fit more loosely in the legs. 

You may wonder how to style mom jeans, considering they’re a throwback fashion choice. However, you can make them feel fresh with a simple white t-shirt or a 90s shirt for a completely vintage look. 

No matter how you wear them, know that mom jeans will look particularly flattering if you have an hourglass figure. You can also use them to create a curvier waist if you have a more athletic build. 

Straight Leg Jeans

There’s a slight difference between straight leg jeans and skinny jeans. These have the same straight-up-and-down style, but they’re slightly less clingy in the legs. 

As such, straight leg jeans might be your more comfortable option, if you’re not a fan of skinny jeans. In particular, though, this style flatters hourglass shapes, athletic builds, and apple shapes. 

You can easily pull off a business casual look with straight leg jeans. Your tailored trousers look perfect with ballet flats and a blazer for the office. 

Of course, you can wear straight leg jeans for the weekend, too. Pair them with sneakers and a t-shirt for the perfect comfy-casual look.

Skinny Jeans

On that note, let’s discuss skinny jeans.

The name may imply that they flatter a specific body type, but skinny jeans get their name from their fit. They’re supposed to hug your thighs and calves down to the ankle. In comparison, straight leg jeans aren’t tapered to your ankle like skinny jeans are. 

Most skinny jeans come in comfortable, stretchy fabric to create this effect. Better yet, they look good on every body shape. 

If you want to make your skinny jeans more flattering, though, choose the right color. Pear and hourglass figures will look best in dark wash denim. Meanwhile, those with apple or athletic shapes will wow in lighter hues. 

Balance out your skinny jeans with looser, oversized tops. Of course, you can go full wow and partner them with a shirt that hugs your body. Va-va-voom!

Low-Rise Jeans

You don’t just have to consider the cut of your denim — different rises will flatter your body differently, too. 

Low rise jeans sit about two inches beneath your belly button. They can seriously flatter hourglass figures, showing off your curves. They also look fab on athletic bodies. 

You can easily find low-rise skinny and straight-leg jeans. For more retro styles, such as mom jeans, you’d be hard-pressed to find them in this more modern cut. 

Mid-Rise Jeans

Next, you have mid-rise jeans, which sit just beneath your belly button. Most people look great in this style. Plus, they look good with just about any type of top. 

So, when in doubt, go mid-rise. You should be able to find most of the above jeans styles in mid-rise cuts, too. 

High-Rise Jeans

Finally, you have high-rise jeans, which sit above your navel. The retro-inspired cut flatter hips and whittled waists.

You can also use high-rise jeans to create curves on a more athletic build. 

Which Types of Jeans Are Best for You? 

Fashion is ever-changing, and so are the types of jeans that are in style. With the above guide, though, you know the basics of which jeans will flatter which body types. 

And, with that information, you can find the pair best suited to your shape. So, find them, try them on and see just how fabulous you look in the right jeans. And tell us your favorite style of jeans in the comments section below.

Thick Rib colorways are Black, Star White, Lavender, Freesia, and Maroon; sizing runs from XS to XL and styles are retailed from $28.00 to $44.00.

Denim plays a key role this fall, with a Denim Pocket Skirt ($58.00) in XS to XL; a Button Flare Jean in Vintage Blue ($68.00) in sizes 24 to 32; a Crop Pencil Jean ($68.00) in sizes 24 to 32; and a new men’s fit: the Straight Jean, made with 14-ounce denim for an authentic vintage feel.

Billy Los Angeles

Billy Los Angeles Season 003 – Spring/Summer 2019.

Primed with nostalgic influence, the brand embraces designer Jovenall’s memories from Pittsburgh’s rural outskirts and introduces denim for the first time.

New York, NY: Billy Los Angeles’ SEASON 003 is a conversation between designer Holly Jovenall’s parallel lives: one growing up in a rural town outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and the other growing into a successful stylist immersed in Los Angeles culture.

SEASON 001 and SEASON 002 established the visual language of these worlds through collections. SEASON 003 explores what eventually led Jovenall from her rural upbringing to her life in Los Angeles. With nostalgia for the transitional and an eye towards the future, SEASON 003 embodies the DIY attitude and style of Jovenall’s childhood contemporaries. These young men fostered their own individual and authentic look using what was available to them locally with echoes of faraway streetwear and hip hop influences. From skateparks on the outskirts of Pittsburgh to the plaid work shirts her father, BILLY, would buy from the farm store, Jovenall’s influences come from the pieces that were simply part of her way of life.

When approaching this season, I found a lot of inspiration from archival photographs that myself and my sister had taken throughout our youth, in our hometown of Transfer, Pennsylvania. References to what I can only describe as a fusion of hip hop culture with Midwest accessibility – this is the vibe I’ve tried to communicate,” Jovenall says.

360, 360 Magazine, Vaughn Lowery, BILLY LOS ANGELES

Graphics from SEASON 003 come from photographers of her father (BILLY), her nephew (Noah) and her horse (Pistol) at horse shows and around the ranch taken by Jovenall and her sister (Marissa). Each piece in the collection is lovingly updated from clothing that her friends, family, and she herself wore in those formative years – such as the rugby shirt – work pants and jacket. As always, the washes and attention to detail are what set BILLY apart. The sun faded vintage affect on the T-shirts to the distressing of the work pants imbue the collection with subtle minimalism.

SEASON 003 introduces BILLY LOS ANGELES denim, washed and worn (but not over worn) to perfection. BILLY denim represents a timeless uniform, updated and executed with modern lines, relaxed washes and fades. The result is a collection of individual items that coincide perfectly with the mood of modern man’s wardrobe while evoking a sense of longing for a simpler time.

Quintessential Outfits To Lift Up Your Style Quotient

Shopping for clothes can be challenging. If you are a fashionista, then the pressure is even higher as you have to meet high expectations. Household chores, school or college, office and other engagements make it difficult to follow fashion trends. A cheat-sheet will come in handy to catch up with what all happened in the fashion world, while you were busy elsewhere. Here are some outfits which have made it to this year’s “must have” list.

Sequin top: Your savior
It is rather tiresome to dress up for a party after a long day at the office. In such cases, a sequin top is your ultimate companion. These sparkly tops need no added accessorizing. Off-shoulder, crop, tank or normal, there are a thousand designs to choose from. The sequins come in golden, silver, copper and other metallic hues. If you are wearing a short halter-neck or tank sequin top, layer it up with printed shrugs or jackets.

Belted trousers are a keeper
Ladies who need to wear pants on a daily basis know how comfortable cotton and linen trousers are. It becomes easy for women to create several looks with belted trousers. These are available in several designs, colors, and materials as well. Whether you are getting ready for another day at the office or have to attend a party, belted trousers will come to your rescue.

Green and white combo
Apart from outfits, you need to keep an eye open to identify which patterns are hot this season. If you don’t possess any short or A-like dress, skirt, jumpsuit, rompers or top that has green and white prints, then you are lagging behind in the fashion game. Subtle white print on a green background is in vogue.

Denim overalls and jumpsuits
Love denim? Who doesn’t right?! This summer, you must get your hands on a denim jumpsuit or overall. These are two styles, which are currently in fashion. Several fashion models and celebs have already been spotted in these attires. The color does not matter as long as the garment fits you correctly. These can be easily dressed up or down. They are suitable for casual and relaxed meetings.

Distresses acid-washed jeans
Speaking of denims, you must have a ton of ripped jeans in your wardrobe. If “yes” then good for you. If not, then you need purchase acid-washed distressed jeans ASAP. Make sure that it accentuates your curves. A jean will fail to serve its purpose if it does not fit the body correctly. These go well with all sorts of tops. Pair it with high boots to get a “high fashion” look.

Cargo printed pants and Ts
After their enormous success, cargo prints slowly faded. As nothing in fashion sector remains submerged for too long, cargos are all set to make a comeback with a bang. If you want to amph up your style quotient, then you must invest in a pair of cargo pants that actually fit. Gone are the days when these were only available in military green. Cargo printed trousers are available in several colors and styles as well. Cargo printed T-shirts will go well with this pant if you deliberately want to create a “print harmony.” Otherwise, cargo printed T-shirts will competent blue, black and grey pants as well.

The plastic trend is in high gear
While the entire world has joined hands to shun the use of plastic to stop environmental degradation, the fashion industry is experimenting with it to create new trends. Hollywood’s “bad girl” Rihanna has already made plastic see-through boots an instant hit. Now, it is time for plastic outfits to shine. Recently, see-through plastic jackets have been launched in the market. These are available in clear as well as colored variants. You can pick either buttoned jackets or zipper jacket. The see-through clear jackets will jazz up your style and will also highlight the top that you are wearing underneath. Opaque plastic skirts are also present in the market for those who wish to bring about a drastic change in their style statement.

Long “top n skirt” combo
Not all ladies are comfortable with skin show. It is not wise to show-up at formal events in mini-skirts and crop tops. In case you want to opt for something other than dresses or long gowns, then check out long top n skirt combos. Western designers have been influenced by long “kurtis” and “ghagra” which are traditional Indian outfits. These are jazzy numbers and are best reserved for special occasions. The long kurti comes with a flared skirt. These Kurtis have slits on both sides. Keeping in line with the Indian flavor, these “kurti n skirt” combos come in vibrant colors. They are made of rich fabrics and often are heavily embellished.

Don’t ignore accessorizing
Once you are done collecting all quintessential attires, which are expected to set the fashion circuit on fire in 2018, it is time to concentrate on your accessorize. All fantastic outfits must be supported with befitting accessories. Too many accessories will make the ensemble visually busy, while lack of it will make the outfit bland. Dressing is like whipping up a recipe. If you fail to add the right spices, your dish will not taste good. The look your desire to achieve is that dish, your attire is the main ingredient and accessories are the spices. You need not put on too many trinkets. Belts, shoes, bags, and scarves also fall in the accessory list. It is imperative that you pick right accessories to complement your outfit. None should outshine the other.

So, wait no more! Check out the fashion stores near you today. If you are too lazy to leave your couch, then log on to any online shopping site. Grab the best deals and revamp your wardrobe with these “must have” pieces today.
