Everything from style and fashion to little tricks that help with all of the dilemmas we have with our bra straps, tight jeans, and uncomfortable shoes. These are all clothing tips that made me think “Why didn’t I think of that?!”. So, I thought I’d pass the wisdom on for other people that wear clothes. I figured there were a lot of you, so here we go!
Tucking Jeans Into Boots
No more fat ankles!! Most of my jeans are boot cut or straight leg (guess I’m just not a skinny jean kind of girl). This poses a problem when it comes to wearing boots — not only does it make it hard to zip them up, but I’m sometimes left with bunched up fabric that is uncomfortable and unflattering! If you have a similar problem, here is a nice little trick to tucking those non-skinny jeans into your boots.
DIY Bra Strap Concealer
This clever clothing trick not only keeps your bra strap concealed, but also keeps your wide neck shirts from falling off of your shoulder. Smart! All it takes are a few thin strips of fabric and sew-on press studs.
Clever Zipper Solution
I have a few pairs of jeans that do this (too tight perhaps?). I’m not sure, but here’s an easy trick to help keep that pesky zipper up! Slide a key chain ring onto the loop of your zipper, and then loop it around the button. The ring stays concealed under the denim and ensures that you don’t get caught with your fly down.
Stretching Shoes The Easy Way
A cute pair of shoes are worthless if you can’t actually wear them! I’m definitely guilty of that; I have a closet full of shoes that I rarely ever wear. I suppose comfort always triumphs over style. My feet seem to be a little bit on the wider side, and this is probably the main cause of discomfort in a lot of my shoes. Here’s an easy trick to stretch out your shoes a bit! Fill a couple of good quality zip lock baggies half full with water, seal them with most of the air out, and then place them in your shoes over night in the freezer. Repeat if needed. Too cool!
Choosing Necklaces For Necklines
I’ve never really given this much thought, but pairing your jewelry with your neckline certainly makes a difference! Your necklace choice should compliment your outfit; the neckline of your shirt or dress being the most important thing to consider. Check out Inside Out Style for more details!
DIY Double Clothes Hangers
Be sure to save those little tabs from your soda cans. Hard to believe, but my collection is getting bigger than my stash of wine corks. You can use them to create double clothes hangers. I like this idea for my daughters clothes so I can pair outfits together for the week. This way she already has them planned out (by me because she couldn’t pick out a matching outfit to save her life). It also saves on closet space!
