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.

Sort Your Summer Chic Look, Now

Between the rising temperatures outside the house and the increasing need for trendy, beautiful clothes, summer chic styles are becoming ever more popular. Dressing for the office, especially, is becoming a difficult business! You don’t want too many layers, nor do you want too little as the air conditioning in the office is cranked up to counteract the heat from the sun outside. Choosing your daily workwear may get difficult as the warmer months draw in and accessorising your outfits can also be hard as you have to find a good, professional balance!

Revamping your closets with Daisy Dukes and long, flowy boho tops is one thing for casual looks, but how do you accessorize? Your usual neckerchief or patterned stockings won’t have a place in the heat, but boho bracelets and delicate flower garlands for your hair like these ones can step into the spotlight! Summer time is a time for lighter, flowing styles and you have to push your comfort zone to get that summer chic look. So, how can you change your usual dress to match a trend that is so popular?

White. In the heat, wearing light colours is a must. White is one of the purest you can wear and it is so fashionable, especially against a gorgeous summer tan. It looks fresh, clean and can really make accessories with colours and metallic hues stand out. Floaty summer dresses in white are often on the catwalk, and your summer chic look can really pop with white trainers paired against denim shorts. You can’t go wrong with white for your summer wardrobe!

Stripes. Most people would go against stripes for their summer wardrobe, but it’s all about choices. When you have an outfit with vertical stripes, you can accessorize any style of stripes with nautical accessories like these and they look fresh!

Boho. Crop tops and long, flowing skirts are an absolute essential for that boho summer look. Pair these with long chain necklaces and drop earrings for a fashionable look that is on point for the whole summer.

Shoes. Summertime is all about comfort and staying cool, so sandals are in and trainers are out. flat sandals like these can match the colours of your summer accessories, so don’t be afraid to decorate your outfit in any way that can match your shoes!

Bag. While you’re on the subject of accessorizing your outfit, choosing a bag that is lightweight and colourful to reflect the summer. Ditch the backpack and go for a lightweight tote. Again, colour should be bold and reflective of your personality as well as the sunshine outside.

Whether you are thinking about your casual summer look or your work outfit, the key is cool, casual and chic colours and additions to each outfit from head to toe. Caring about how you have dressed is wonderful and you can really show off your style when you go all out this summer time!
