Kohls and Hot Topic have jumped on the bandwagon in creating clothing lines inspired by the upcoming live action remake of Beauty and the Beast. Both retailers aim there lines at young adult females and offer a mix of tops, jackets, and dresses. Additionally, Hot Topic has released a variety of accessories, from jewelry to handbags, to accompany their Disney themed clothing line. I selected my favorite pieces from each line to post about, so be sure to check each of the stores’ sites for even more pieces!
Kohls’ interpretations of the fantasy film’s fashions is subtle and very feminine. The sizes are junior sizes ranging from Small to X-Large. Prices of the line can range from $20 (starting at their graphic tees) upwards of $34 (including the current sale prices). Looking at each dress in this line, you can see which of Belle’s looks they are recreating for the modern, Disney loving girl.
Hot Topic’s enchanting clothing line is geared more toward the hardcore Disnerds and cosplayers with its costume like embellishments and more theatrical flair. The sizes they offer range from XS to 3X, so I applaud them on being so inclusive toward their customers. The prices of this line are a little expensive for my taste, perhaps because of the richer more elaborate fabrics as a top may start out at $27 and the classic yellow ballgown look goes up to $108 for the plus sizes. Additionally, I think their prices are higher because they rely alot on promotions such as Hot Cash – so spend wisely, friends.
Oh! And did I mention their accessory and handbag additions? My favorites – the crossbody rose bag and replica movie necklace would make for the perfect Disneybound or subtle ode to the film on a day you’re feeling especially magical.
