Fashion! Fashion!! Fashion!!! We love you, but we struggle to keep up with you.
These tricks and tips will give you a hassle free life with keeping up with trends and fashion.
One Body Part Show
One of the all-time fashion rules is that if you are showing your legs, your cleavage should be covered and vice versa. Showing both at the same time can make you appear trashy.
We are all prone to carry around with us more than we need on a daily basis. However, for a party, all you really need is a small clutch with chain or even a wristlet / wrist purse. Only carry essentials such as small wallet, phone, house/car keys, lipstick or gloss and makeup touch up.
Especially with the recession going on, buying a new outfit might be a bit difficult. Why not accessorise your old outfits with jewellery, shoes, bags etc.
Emergency Sewing Kit
Not only are we prone to having fashion emergencies such as a button popping around the breast area for big chested ladies like myself, or even skirt zip too for bigger hips ladies. However, lives can be saved by just carrying emergency sewing kit which has black, white and/or grey thread, needle, safety pin and button. You might also be saving other sisters too as our sister’s keeper.
In a hot climate like ours, it’s best to keep shoes out of a closed closet. Let them air out, if left in boxes, the heat can damage them. If your shoe is wet, let it air dry. If your shoe, trainers or slip on happen to smell, pour and spread evenly three tablespoons of baking soda for 24 hours or overnight to absorb perspiration.
Loosen Tight Pants
We all have one favourite trousers or skirt we tend to struggle to get into. Why not stretch the waist by hand then air dry or with a hairdryer while still wet?
Deodorise in the Freezer
Denim has the tendency of developing an odour over time especially in a hot climate like Nigeria. To avoid stretching in the washing machine. Place denim inside zipping-lock plastic freezer bag for two days.
Around the neck trick
If you are too busy to try your clothes on at the store, especially bottoms such as skirts and trousers, hold around your neck. If the waistband touches comfortably, it will slip on. The size of your waist is the same as your neck.
Especially for those who want their space organised and tidy, why not use matching hangers, but it can be differentiated with colour. E.g. Green for shirts etc.
We hope these tricks and tips will be helpful.
