Hollister is a popular mall store featuring Cali-inspired, preppy clothing for teenage girls and guys. Hollister describes their style of clothing as “effortlessly cool and totally accessible.” They carry jeans, tops, hoodies, outerwear, & more.
Hollister’s clothing is typically reasonably priced, with many things being around $50 or less. In my experience, they are usually decent quality for the prices too. I still wear a Hollister coat (and a couple of sweatshirts) every winter, which I’ve had for 17 years now!
However, if you’re curious what other stores are like Hollister, this post is here to help. The stores listed below are for both girls and guys and are all available online. Happy shopping!

15+ Alternatives to Hollister for Guys and Girls
1.) Abercrombie & Fitch
Of course, Abercrombie & Fitch is the store most like Hollister. That’s because Abercrombie and Fitch owns Hollister. They feature a similar laidback, classic vibe with their clothing and a similar price point for both guys and girls.
Aeropostale a.k.a. Aero is also a mall retailer that features casual clothing and accessories geared toward fashionable teenagers like Hollister. Their clothing is typically cheaper than Hollister’s but still decent quality. They also feature clothing for both girls and guys.
3.) American Eagle
American Eagle has a similar classic and casual style like Hollister and also a similar price point. American Eagle makes the best jeans and jean shorts too, in my opinion. I’ve had jeans from AE that have lasted me well over a decade (and I’m still wearing them)!
Pacsun has the same effortless cool yet casual look going on that a lot of Hollister’s clothing has. Plus, the prices are about the same. Pacsun is geared a bit more toward skater fashion than Hollister is, though.
Buckle or The Buckle features stylish casual wear for girls and guys, including jeans & shoes, plus accessories. They are most known for their great selection of jeans, though. The Buckle has 451 stores in 42 states throughout the US. Prices are pretty similar to Hollister too.
6.) Forever 21
Also geared toward a younger crowd, Forever 21 is a fast-fashion company that carries all the latest trending pieces for very low prices. They also have a plus + curve section and carry a men’s line, little girl’s line, makeup and haircare line. Prices on average are cheaper than Hollister’s prices.
H&M has a lot of clothing options that Hollister-lovers will appreciate. Their clothing ranges from trendy to classic and everything in between!
8.) Lucky Brand
Lucky Brand is a trendy California jeans company that also makes super cute dresses and blouses. They also have a nice selection of loungewear. Prices tend to be a little more expensive than Hollister, though.
9.) Urban Outfitters
Urban Outfitters has a similar look and feel to Hollister. They have a wide variety of trendy pieces but also have plenty of 90s throwbacks and casual pieces to choose from too at a similar price point.
Shopping on Shein’s website is one of my guilty pleasures. They have a little bit of everything in terms of trendy clothing and accessories and the prices are SO cheap. They now have a guys section too. With a little digging, Hollister-lovers will be able to easily find items they love at a lower price point. I’ve, personally, had great luck ordering from them. However, I’ve also put together a list of tips for shopping on Shein to ensure you have a good experience ordering from them too – click here to see it.
Romwe is owned by the same company as Shein and has a very similar selection of clothing. However, Romwe is geared toward a younger fashionista than Shein is. Their prices are considerably cheaper than Hollister’s too.
12.) Rue 21
Rue21 carries inexpensive clothing geared toward a younger crowd, but I do still wear many of the items I purchased from Rue21 back in the day. They have a lot of cute options! Their prices are also less than Hollister’s, but I would say their style is a little more “out there” than the typical casual clothing you would find at Hollister.
13.) Charlotte Russe
Charlotte Russe was one of my favorite US-based mall stores when I was a teen. Charlotte Russe is geared more toward the younger crowd too, and their prices are incredibly cheap. The items that I have, have held up well over the years (especially considering the price). Their items are a little dressier than the majority of Hollister pieces, though.
14.) The Gap
GAP is known for their cozy and casual fleeces, activewear, and denim. However, GAP’s iconic logo hoodies are what the brand is most known for…and thanks to TikTok, GAP’s logo hoodies have made quite the comeback recently. Hollister fans will have no problem finding clothes to love at GAP!
Levi’s is an American brand known worldwide for their incredible denim jeans. Now, they feature more than just amazing jeans, you’ll also find everything from comfy loungewear to cute and casual dresses and skirts at Levi’s.
