Fashion’s hard. But there are hacks for this and that. For instance, did you know a wrap scarf can actually become a skirt and that a seam ripper is a thing that can make something fit roomier OR create a sexy slit?
Try a hack or six below to make life easier.
1. Baby wipes for stains.
Congratulations to Laverne Cox for wearing white and probably living a life free of stains. But for the rest of us, baby wipes can actually come in handy.
2. Unstick a zipper with vaseline.
Zipper refusing to — we don’t know — BE A ZIPPER? Vaseline is a miracle creation that is not only handy on scars, lips, and elbows, but zippers too.
3. Inserts for your feet.
Sometimes shoes are like your [insert problematic relative here] in that they DON’T support you. Walking in heels is worse than walking on coals, we imagine. Bring inserts to practice safe walking.
4. Embrace the trendy high-low hemline.
Because then when you bend over for your phone, no one will see a thing.
5. Make a wrap into a skirt like this genius did. This is how you avoid paying for a new knitted skirt. But we want one, just like Candice Huffine, and we want it bad.
6. Seam ripper. YES THIS IS REAL. It lets you make slits in dresses if you feel like wearing something roomier, or even more sexy like.
