Amazing Hacks Every Fashionista Needs To Know

If we had to pick out one thing we love about the internet-age in which we live, it would take something super-special to topple our love for hacks. The people of this world just have a brand new way to share their best pieces of genius, their little bits of innovation and their top tips when it comes to navigating life. If we had to narrow this down even further, well, we’d have to incorporate these hacks into our absolute love of all things fashion.

There is just so much that needs fixing on this front. Like when we lose the back of our earrings or spill red wine over our favorite summer dress, or any one of the infinite other surprises that can creep up and wreak absolute havoc on our fashion plans, and maybe prevent us from having to have that wardrobe clear out prematurely. That is where having an arsenal full of practical solutions can be nothing short of a lifesaver. Yup, even the most disastrous and annoying fashion failures and outfit catastrophes can become manageable thanks to the hack-inspired world that we exist within.

Accidents happen, there is nothing you can do to prevent that fact of life from continuing. However, there are some bits of know-how you can swat up on to become the most incredible handywoman of fashion and help your wardrobe to live another day.

Problem No.1 The Stubborn Zipper

There is nothing more frustrating than when we go to pull on that pair of jeans that gives your bottom the most amazing shape, or you grab that cute little bomber jacket you love, only to find out the zipper is stuck. Well, instead of cursing up to the skies and giving up on life, there are a few things you can do. Rubbing Vaseline into the teeth is one. Using a crayon along the teeth is another. While a graphite pencil should also do the trick. A quick rub and your zipper should run as smooth as ever.

Problem No.2 The Soggy Canvas Shoe

Canvas shoes are so in right now. Not only are they cool, they are also cute and pretty and oh so comfortable. Oh. So. Comfortable. Until you walk through a puddle you hadn’t seen because you were texting, or it starts raining unexpectedly. That is when wearing canvas shoes can really, really suck. But there is a way to waterproof them. All you need to do is buy some beeswax, rub it in all over your shoe and then use a hair dryer to help the wax set and create a natural waterproof seal.

Problem No.3 The Ironing A Buttoned Shirt

Ironing in itself isn’t the joy-filled pastime we all hope it will be. It is boring. Not only that it tends to be an art form that we can’t get our heads around no matter how much we do it, especially when it comes to ironing a button-down shirt. Luckily for you, there is a very simple solution to this horrid experience. All you have to do is turn your shirt inside out and, voila, you can now easily glide over the buttons without melting them with your hot iron. Amazing.

Problem No.4 The Lost Earring Back

Okay, I don’t know why we specifically state earring back when losing the actual earring is so much worse. All you remember is, you went out the night before, came back late, fell into bed with your earrings still in because you were absolutely exhausted and woke up only to find them missing in action. Well, your solution lies in a nylon stocking and a vacuum cleaner. Simple put your stocking over the vacuum hose and then going on a retrieval mission. Hopefully your missing earring (and back) will stick to the nylon for you to retrieve and enjoy once more.

Problem No.5 The Deodorant Stain

It is one of those lose-lose situations, isn’t it? Either you don’t wear deodorant, which will mean sweating, which will mean you stain your clothes both visually and in terms of smell, or you wear deodorant and you stain your clothes that way. Obviously, the latter is the better of two evils in that scenario. The good news is there is a very simple way to get rid of this kind of stain and it relies on nothing more than you rubbing your jeans on the stained area. The only thing you want to be a little conscious of is transferring the color of jeans onto the item in question, so just test it on a small patch of the clothing area just to be sure.

Problem No.6 The Red Wine Stain

We’ve all been there. We’ve been at a party or a wedding where there is a free bar and we’ve gotten a little too excited and ended up spilling red wine on that summer dress we’ve been waiting to wear for an absolute age. Well, the best way to solve this issue is to immediately soak some cloth (say, your napkin) with white wine and then gently blot the red wine stain. It is one of those old wives tales that we rarely give credence to but, trust us, it totally works.

Problem No.7 The Fading Black Clothes

It doesn’t matter how many years you’ve been in a relationship with your washing machine for; it still has a way of fading your dark clothes and that is so much more annoying than we can ever fully comprehend. It is also expensive. So to make clothes last longer, it is so important that you learn how to wash your dark clothes properly and that is where turning your clothes inside out can come in handy. You see, the reason your darks fade is that they get hot and then rub on the other clothes. It is that simple. So, turn them inside out and that won’t happen anymore. Simple and incredible.

Problem No.8 The Dirty Suede

Suede is one of those materials that is so nice to wear and look at. Even faux-suede is gorgeous; it instantly makes an outfit look that much more expensive and sophisticated. However, cleaning dirt off your suede isn’t as easy as it should be and we can often end up ruining the suede itself in the process. That’s where bread can be your savior. Simple remove the crust from a slice of bread, leave it to go stale and then gently rub the dirty suede with the edge of the bread. You will see it disappear before your very eyes.

I visited in the evening and first collection that I witnessed was by Veronica by Meenu Mehra and Varsha Sethi.

VERONICA by Meenu Mehra

The collection showcased customized & weaved fabrics using the techniques of jacquard that created the dual lighter and darker effect of the dye.

The collection that truly caught my eye was Aahana’s by Nidhi Mehra, beautiful colours and delicate cuts made the entire collection look very very feminine and chic.


Aahana’s by Nidhi Mehra was born as a concept 3 years ago with Nidhi’s first designer studio being launched and operated in Noida. Nidhi’s collection has been showcased and appreciated across 20 leading national and international fashion shows and events. Taking inspiration from the feminine passion with the bold yet ethnic apparels, each piece of the designer collection AAHANA’S by Nidhi Mehra couture represented class apart from combining beauty and confidence seamlessly together. With scintillating combinations and hues, the collection is an ideal wear for any occasion. Hrishitaa Bhatt sizzled the ramp as the showstopper for the talented designer.

She has been an active participant in various global business summits and has recently won the coveted ET Brand Award 2017 at the ET Global Business Summit 2017 in New Delhi. Over these last 3 years, through her passion and innate creative skills, Nidhi Mehra has made a huge mark in the fashion industry by bringing about a paradigm shift in outlook of the opinion leaders from the fashion fraternity.

Shopclues also showcased some of their best collections and also introduced their latest trends through a Fashion Show. I must confess that I fared very badly at the Tol Mol Ke Bol game, as every time I guessed the price for a product, it was much cheaper than my guess. The quality of the products didn’t let me guess it for less, but they truly were very affordable and surprised me every time when the price was revealed. After a few failures, I did manage to guess it right

Radhika Aggarwal, Co-Founder and CBO, Shopclues interacted with the audience and highlighted the idea behind the campaign. She said the focus was on giving a smart dressing wardrobe for which one doesn’t need to spend huge bucks and also there is something for every kind of shopper.

Modern Roots is a latest collection for women that represents various handicrafts of India such as pure indigo to mirror work, the range is priced from 499 t0 1599.

Pinks, Yellows and Metallic is a Bollywood inspired collection starting from as low as 149. 9 to 5 Dressing, Flash Dance Shoulders, Summer Florals were some other collections for women. While for men, there was Layered Look, Smart Casuals and Mood Dressing.
