15 Fashion Hacks Every Woman Should Know

Fashion isn’t easy! Sometimes you have to go to great lengths to look good, but even when you do, an odd line, crease or stain ruins the whole look. Here are some fashion hacks every woman should know to keep themselves looking good.

  1. Have a few pairs of comfortable shoes you’d like to wear outside more? Use beeswax to waterproof canvas shoes. It will wear over time, but it’s cheap and natural.
  2. Buttons can be a pain to iron around. If anything has buttons, flip the garment upside down and iron from the back. For even harder to reach spots, like the collar, use a hair straightener.
  3. If you lose something small, like the back of an earring or a gem from a piece of jewelry, pull a stocking over the vacuum cleaner hose and vacuum where you lost the item. You’ll attract the piece without sucking it into the bag.
  4. Ever changed shirts after you were ready only to find deodorant stains on the new shirt? Rub the stain against denim real quick.
  5. Dingy diamonds? Use Fantastik. Spray a bit on a clean rag and rub them on your diamonds.
  6. You can remove sweat stains with lemon juice. Lemon juice is acidic which breaks down the organic matter of sweat.
  7. Clean out your closet by organizing with hangers. Face all your hanging items one direction in your closet. Over the course of a year, return any item to the closet with the hanger facing the other way. After the year, get rid of everything facing the original direction.
  8. Some items just have to be hand washed, but we always worry if we’re agitating enough to get them clean. Fill a salad spinner with water, soap, and your garment. Spin until you’re happy it’s clean.
  9. Wear a properly fitted bra. If you can’t squeeze two fingers beneath the band, it’s too small.
  10. Oil stain on your favorite blouse? Lay it out and leave baby powder on it overnight.
  11. Spray your tights with hairspray before putting them on. Runs will vanish!
  12. Keep your dark jeans dark by adding a half cup of distilled vinegar to the wash.
  13. Tuck non-skinny jeans into books by folding them up once (so they don’t bunch at the bottom), pulling the fabric out, pinching it around your ankle, and folding it around. Pull up your socks to keep it in place and then don your boots.
  14. Wear a form-fitting tank top between your sweater and button-up to keep your midsection smooth. This will prevent the bunched-fabric look.
  15. You can stretch jeans by getting them wet. Spray them with water (or in extreme cases, put them on and then get in the tub) and apply some force until they reach a good length.
