You can choose a theme variation from inside the Stencil Theme Editor, accessed in your BigCommerce control panel. In your control panel, go to Storefront > My Themes, and click the blue "Customize" button to launch Theme Editor.

In the left hand menu, click the "Styles" heading, and from here you can select your preferred variation.

A Note About Theme Updates

We regularly update our themes to maintain them and introduce new features. If you customize the theme through the Stencil Theme Editor, then when you apply an update, your configuration will be pulled into the new version.

Updating theme files if you wish to modify the theme by changing the core files, then you'll need to create a copy of the theme first.

Making a copy effectively 'disconnects' it from the update feature. The original theme will still receive updates, but you will need to manually maintain a customized theme.
