Hollister app review: get the ultimate Abercrombie look with the official So Cal Stylist 2021



Abercrombie & Fitch have given this fashion app a complete overhaul with a great So Cal Stylist that will help you to piece together the perfect outfit based on your lifestyle; boys and girls are both covered and you’ll find something to suit a wide variety of tastes.

Disregarding Abercrombie & Fitch clothing for a moment, this iPhone app for style is a real treat visually; the So Cal Stylist features a fairly simple range of functionality but I love the way the content is presented and the way you can clearly see that this app has been developed by a real pro.

Keep reading our Hollister app review to learn more about how to be stylish with this app.

U Got the Look

I’m no fashion expert and I will admit that I don’t own or plan on owning any Hollister products, but I will say this: these guys really know how to put an app together.

When you first start up the app, you’ll be able to choose between the in-app So Cal Stylist and the In-Store Stylist; the Style Quiz presents you with a few multiple choice questions such as whether you’re a ‘Dude’ or a ‘Betty,’ and other things about your lifestyle. With this information, you’ll be presented with an ensemble based on the answers you provided.

The In-Store Stylist is basically a barcode scanner that will give you a choice of different styles based on items you like in-store; just scan the barcode of the item you like and the details will be saved into the app so you can take it home and design the perfect style.

I love the way the developer has covered all angles as you can also use this app to access the online Abercrombie & Fitch store – ideal for once you’ve used the style guides – find nearby stores, and even access exclusive member bonuses and benefits.

Again, the in-app store caters to both 'Dudes' and 'Bettys' and offers the latest in hot summer styles; Hollister is currently running 'The Epic Summer Sale' with up to 40% off of selected products, so I'd definitely recommend jumping on this while you've got the chance!

Strike a Pose

So there you have it, if you want your very own stylist that you can carry around in your pocket, the Hollister app will provide exactly what you’re looking for.

Maybe I’m just getting old, but fashion doesn’t excite me like it does some of my younger friends. Having said that, I can definitely appreciate the features in this app, especially the So Cal Stylist, and would love to see other clothing brands bring out apps like this.

The Hollister app gets a shining review from me and I would definitely recommend it to any fan of Abercrombie & Fitch products.
