Clothing: You Have Been Doing It Wrong

Clothing and fashion are not always great. New outfits lose their appeal before they are even worn, laundry days are few and far between, pieces become too tight, and fabric stains, unfortunate burdens in the world of fashion. Thankfully, there are countless hacks to make dressing yourself easier by saving you time, money, and a whole lot of patience.

 

Stretch Your Flats in a Flash

 

Though often cheap, new flats are difficult to break in. Chances are, you need these shoes the next day and do not want to deal with the pain that will come with wearing them so soon. The night before you plan on wearing them, put on your thickest socks, slip on the flats, and use a hairdryer to seal the deal.

 

Remove Pen Stains with Hairspray

 

If you have ever used a pen, you have gotten that pen on your clothing at one point or another. Instead of setting the stain in with water, pull out your hairspray.

 

Why Put Your Jeans in the Freezer?

 

Fashion gurus say that you should not wash your jeans after every use because they fade faster and the fabrics loosen. However, the thickness of the material results in some horrid odors being trapped in there from time to time. To put a stop to this nonsense, put your jeans into a ziplock bag and place them in the freezer overnight.

 

Save Your Old Tights

 

Have a deodorant stain? Use a pair of old tights to rub it away.

 

Add Something; Lose Something

 

Anytime you buy something new, consider donating something old. Chances are, you purchased this new piece to replace an old one and to spruce up your wardrobe, right?

 

Roll ‘Em Up

 

Rather than folding clothes, roll them before putting them into your drawers.

 

Vodka for Clothes

 

Again, laundry days are too far apart. If you need to pull something out of the hamper, spray it with vodka. This will destroy any odors and the vodka smell will not linger.

Secret Style, Zero Actual Effort

Being stylish does not come easy for everybody, but this gloriously modern time makes that quite alright. With so many designers understanding the need to produce affordable attire and accessories and that they must conform to fitting all body types, fashion is made simple. Surely some people are still fashion-impaired and do not know the first thing about dressing for their body type nor how to properly amp up their outfits, but BuzzFeed has compiled a concise list describing how you can trick the public into thinking that you know the difference between New York Fashion Week and Star Magazine.

 

There’s No Shame in Borrowing

 

The new trend is a subscription service that will send you new clothes each month for a fee. When you wear the outfit and receive your fill of compliments for the day, simply package it up, send it back, and wait for the next one.

 

Find the Perfect Jacket

 

A trendy jacket can make the most ridiculous outfit fashionable, specifically if it is leather. For the sake of being animal-friendly, opt for faux-leather.

 

Learn Your Prints and Patterns

 

Mixing prints and patterns is in, but only if you know how. Sure, polka dots do not necessarily work well with stripes, but they can if you balance it out correctly. Once you learn these fashion rules, you will immediately become fashionable.

 

Plan Ahead

 

Picking out your outfits the night before will make for a more put together ensemble the following morning directly because you will not cut corners to save time and patience.

 

Check the Weather

 

Be ahead of the crowd by checking the weather. While everyone is bundled up in preparation for forty degree weather, you can lessen the layers because you understand that today will be in the sixties.

 

Remove the Wrinkles

 

Ironing is out, but bringing your clothes into the bathroom as you shower is in. Removing the wrinkles from your clothes without investing any actual effort will make people think that you actually care about your attire, even if you do not.

 

Roll Your Sleeves Up

 

Learning how to roll your sleeves up can transform a professional outfit to casual; dressy to semi-sexy, too.
