While summer’s problems revolved around how to hide unmentionables in minimal amounts of clothing, fall fashion affords a lot more coverage. However, different problems arise, such as sagging boots, pit stains and buckle bulge. Fortunately, with the help of some crafty fashion fix-its, you won’t have top worry about being a walking wardrobe malfunction.
Read on for head to toe solutions that will help keep it all together.
Problem Area #1: Head
Hats are all the rage this fall, but keeping them clean on the inside is nearly impossible. Plus, what is old makeup, sweat and grime doing to your skin, sitting on it day in and day out? Most hats cannot be thrown in a washing machine, so keep the grime and make-up off hats in the first place with unisex White Collar Grime disposable collar and hat protectors. Simply stick the 100% cotton strip to the inside of hats (or collars) and dispose when necessary.
White Collar Grime, $9.95
Problem Area #2: Breasts
Sweaters and jackets provide much appreciated warmth in falling temperatures, but it can be easy to lose a shapely figure amid all the boxy layers. To keep the girls from getting lost, try breast enhancers like Yoobies inflatable bra inserts. Yoobies are boobies YOU control, allowing women to add a little or a lot of enhancement to their figure. They also enhance cleavage in any cocktail dresses that might be hiding under those layers.
Problem Area #3: Armpits
From the military jacket to the camel coat to the casual blazer, jackets are hot this fall. Sweaty, deodorant marked jackets are not. Products like Garment Guard, the original disposable underarm shield, help protect black blazers from embarrassing deodorant discoloration and save on dry cleaning costs. The same underarm shields in beige also protect crisp white shirts and silky blouses from unsightly pit stains. Just peel and stick to the garment and change out as necessary.
Garment Guard (5 pairs), $10.95
Problem Area #4: Waist
Fall fashion is full of sleek looks and clean lines. Nothing disrupts a sleek line like a buckle bulge. Avoid such disruptions and keep your pants in line with sleek belts like Invisibelt. Invisibelt provides all the support of a belt (i.e. plumber’s crack prevention) without the bulge.
Problem Area #5: Feet
Feet look fabulous this fall in the latest knee- and thigh-high boots. Boots can make a fall outfit complete and polished, as long as they remain standing tall. Fortunately, products like Boot Stay adhesive sag preventers help keep boots up, preventing flaccid footwear and cankles.
Boot Stay, $9.95
