Fake-it-Till-You-Make-it Fashion Hacks! Part 1
So...what's the problem?
Hey! We are all imperfect, aren't we? Sometimes things snap, break, maybe even become misplaced! But, although humans are imperfect, do not ever believe your fashion has to suffer! Here are some great fashion hacks to help you through the toughest of times! This article will be divided into three parts: Fashion (Part 1), Make-up (Part 2), and Hair (Part 3) . You can either read the article entirely to discover all kinds of neat tips and tricks to help you in any fashion crisis, or you could read this section-by-section as you see needed. No matter the accessory or obstacle, there are always loopholes around our looks!
This list will go from head to toe, beginning with a shirt.
How can my shirt be too big or too small?!
How many times have we been caught in a situation where you see the cutest shirt on the cutest body (ourselves of course), but the fit just isn't quite right? By just changing a few aspects of the shirt, you can transform your look instantly!
Method 1: Tying the shirt
-If the shirt is a button up, tie the shirt in the front and only button a few buttons to create a easy-going tomgirl style that still remains completley chic!
-If the shirt is your average tee shirt, you can tie either side to create the same look as above, only modernized. NOTE: NOT ALL SHIRTS ARE CREATED EQUAL! If your shirt appears to be too small for two ties, you can always wrap one large tie around itself.
If the shirt is too small, you could always pair your shorter shirt with a pair of high-wasited jeans are shorts, and it would appear just like a crop top!
My shirt is wrinkled!
Your shirt is wrinkled and do not have an iron? Fear not! Clean the hairspray off of a flat iron and turn it to 350 degrees and iron your clothes that way. The advantages to this is you can see exactly where the ironing needs to happen, and it is not such a hassle to pull everything out. Just make sure that the temperature is not too hot, as it will burn the clothes. You must have it cleaned beforehand, or it may stain the shirt!
My shirt's fabric is too thick for a lint roller!
Being girl's, society expects us to constantly shave. The cost of razors that actually get the job done could run high, especially if you shave often, because the blade gets duller and duller. Even if your blade is dull, there is still a purpose for it! On sweaters, the stubborn pieces of lint stuck on our sweaters can really be a hassle. This is where the razor comes in. No matter how old a razor may be if you swipe over the shirt, the lint gets taken away! Now, of course the sharper the razor the more it takes off, but you do not want too much taken off. Use your own discretion when using the razor method.
My shirt's are constantly ruined from sweat!
It could be from stress, or maybe even a medical condition that makes us sweat ridiculously. Even if we wear deodorant, women may still soak through some clothes which could make our pockets lose, too. If you place panty liner on the inside of a shirt, it will absorb the sweat quickly! The only downside is depending on how often you sweat, you may have to change it. In this case, I would recommend Certain Dri, as it is effective on people with hyperhydrosis, low in cost, and safe on humans! You can buy this at almost any drug store, and you do not need a prescription for it.
School student's anyone? Some people are blessed with a tiny waist, and could work almost any fabric around their torso's. When in a pinch, take your lanyard and simply tie it around your waist! you could use cover up the lanyard with a shirt, or if your feeling risky, you could always embrace your imperfections by showing the lanyard! Some lanyards have beautiful designs! There are all types of modifications to this method as well, as you could use any shoelace or ribbon, maybe even a necklace or headband! It all depends on your body shape. Do some experimentation with the materials you have to see which one is right for you.
Do you have beautiful white sneakers that aren't that squeaky clean anymore? Many women carry nail polish remover pads on them. If this sounds like you, simply use a pad to clean the dirt off your white sneakers, and they will look good as new, guaranteed!
This method also works for any scuff on any shoe, but is most commonly used for it's cleaning properties.
Other Fashion Accessories
Love a rind but have sensitive skin? You can easily wear jewlery that turns your skin green by running clear nail polish over the metal. To be safe, you should reapply every month or two, even if everyone says it lasts up to a year. If you feel skeptical, your finger will always tell you when it;s time to apply more nail polish to that ring that turns your finger green! This can work on necklaces and bracelets too. But, careful: Never use on earrings! The wet nail polish may sting your piercing! Even if the nail polish is dry, this doesn't protect you from infections that arise from allergies! Never use this method when a piece of jewelry goes into your skin, only on your skin.
There you have it!
