10 Fashion Hacks Everyone Should Know

We all have ‘tried and tested’ ideas, hints and tips we swear by. Some are useful, some are just plain sensible and others are a bit ‘out there’. Here are 10 of our favourite ‘Fashion Hacks’ that we have come across, that we believe everyone should know about.


  1. To give your wardrobe a fast clear out, look at each item you own and ask yourself one question: “ If I was shopping and I saw this for sale today, would I buy it?” if your answer is no, get rid of it.
  2. Never wear something immediately after ironing, this can cause new wrinkles.  Let it rest for about 5 minutes to set.
  3. A quick and easy was to de-fuzz a sweater is to use a pumice stone.
  4. Spray tights and stockings with hairspray to avoid holes and ladders. To stop one you already have getting worse dab the end with nail polish.
  5. When shopping for that special outfit, for a wedding or a function, before heading to the shops take time to do your makeup, wear proper undergarments and your hair semi-done, so you can get a real sense of how the outfit will look.
  6. To stretch tight fitting shoes, fill a freezer bag for each show with water and place into the shoe and the shoes in the freezer. Leave overnight and as the water freeze it will stretch your shoes gently.
  7. Whilst ironing use a metal spoon to cover delicate buttons or detailed areas to protect them from the iron.
  8. To neutralize smelly trainers pour two tablespoons of baking soda into them and leave overnight.
  9. Use those odd socks that seem to breed whilst doing the laundry as heat pads.  Fill them with dry beans or rice, tie the end and pop them in the microwave for a minute.
  10. Replace the bra you wear every day after about 3 to 6 months as they begin to lose their support after this point.
