Fashion week is well underway, and the air in New York City is vibrating with excitement. The latest trends are on display, and the most fashion-forward are strutting their stuff on the runways and sidewalks of Lincoln Center. While we all try to look our best in case a fashion photographer decides to snap a street style shot, sometimes we’re struck with a fashion emergency! These quick fixes will get you back on the catwalk in no time.
Static overload? Spray the area with a light mist of hairspray to make all cling subside.
Scuffed shoes are messing with your swagger? Use some Sharpie markers for a temporary fix. Word of warning: this won’t hold up as well in bad weather, so just carry a marker with you wherever you go!
If you’ve got a run in your stockings, use the oldest trick in the book: clear nail polish. That run will stop in its tracks (temporarily).
If you’re having problems with your hem, use a stapler! We wouldn’t recommend this on very expensive pieces, but if you’re in a bind and need a quick fix, there’s no easier way to adjust a hem. You can also use packing tape for a sturdy hold that does minimum damage.
Another use for tape is furry friend damage control. The tape easily picks up any unwanted animal hair!
