MINNEAPOLIS & NEW YORK--()--Stacy London, Style Ambassadress for Hollywood Fashion Secrets, the creator of double-side Fashion Tape® and the Style Essentials product category, today revealed secrets, tips and tricks so women of all ages can head back to school with flawless style while sporting the latest trends from sweaters, ankle rolled boyfriend jeans and other denim looks, as well as leggings, tights and the darker hues for the season.

“We are on a mission to create a wardrobe malfunction-free America – eliminating everything from peek-a-boo bra straps and ripped hems to deodorant marks on tops and slouching knee highs -- and that means sharing with women of all ages the tricks of the trade that deliver undercover wardrobe magic that help us all look perfectly put together,” said London. “These Style Essentials expertly erase, lift, hide, secure, tuck, tighten and hem to empower women to style themselves with greater confidence, especially when trying out a new trend.”

Here are some top back-to-school trends enabled by Hollywood Fashion Secrets revealed from Stacy London today:

  • Denim – Denim + school go hand-in-hand and today’s denim trends offer a range of styles from skinny to torn-up bagging boyfriend jean, where the ankle roll is a de rigueur. Here are some key tips to wearing the season’s most popular back-to-school pant:
    • Sometimes the tight roll loses its structure as you walk. Keep the ankle roll perfectly in place with Hollywood Fashion Tape scrunched in and hidden among the folds.
    • The Hip Hugger back belt closes the common back-of-jeans gap so many endure. In order to fit the booty, we size up, only to have an ill-fit waist. This tool is super comfortable and it truly works.
    • If you want to tuck your jeans into boots from ankle to mid and tall shaft heights, use the Boot Straps. These genius thin Velcro straps are adjustable from ankle to calf and they keep your pants down while pulling boots up to delivers a sleek finish!
  • Sweaters – fall equals sweater season and we’ll see them in a range of knits including wool, cashmere and cotton blends. Let’s face it, they pill! Keep them looking their best with the Sweater Saver Stone, a natural pumice-based brick that de-pills sweaters and other fabrics like magic. This stone also works on leggings, tights, even blankets and throws. We’ve even heard from a fan that de-pilled her entire couch with the stone, saving hundreds of dollars.
  • Sleeveless – With all the global climate changes, heading back to school no longer means wearing your fave fall outfit on the first day. It means heading back to campus in your summer sleeveless! And those classrooms and dorm rooms can be stuffy and warm. Keep bra straps under-wraps in sleeveless tops, especially racer-back looks, with the Bra Converter Clip.
  • Knee Highs – If you're into a classic school girl look, there is nothing more distracting than constantly bending over and yanking and adjusting your socks, or having them slouch. Keep ‘em up with Hollywood Fashion Tape.
  • Oversized Bows – Tops with flouncy oversized bows offer a feminine vibe this back-to-school season. Use Accessory Dots to keep the bows in place and maintain a more polished look.
  • Darker Hues -- While orange may be the new black, most of us will still being wearing black and darker shades as we transition into fall. These darker hues mean deodorant stains will show more than ever. Get rid of these pesky marks with no water and one swoop with the Deodorant Removing Sponge -- one of my ultimate faves in the collection.
