Part 2: More fashion tips that could just change your life

Voila! After your first 25 fashion hacks, we just couldn’t resist sharing the next 25. Why would anyone want to keep secrets like these all to themselves. Sharing is caring. You can thank us later!

1- Pants a bit too tight? Let them air dry and stretch the waistband by hand (or with a hairdryer) while they’re still damp.

2- Still look chic while showing some skin: If you’re wearing a miniskirt or shorts, cover up on top. If your top is skimpy, go for full-coverage bottoms.

3- Don’t underestimate the power of a well-fitting, stylish winter coat. You can be wearing pajamas underneath and you’ll still look perfectly put together.

4- Windex restores the glossy sheen on patent leather without doing any damage.

5- The power of a silk pillowcase isn’t a myth: Not only do they prevent sleep crease, they’re much, much gentler on your skin and hair.

6- V-neck sweaters and tees give the illusion of a longer torso.

7- Spritzed a bit too much perfume on yourself this morning? Use unscented, oil-based makeup remover to remove excess perfume.

8- Tend to wear certain leather shoes without socks? Always stuff them with a soft cloth when you’re done wearing them. This absorbs moisture and help the shoes keep their shape.

9- Hoop earrings are a classic style that every woman should have, but the type depends on your face. If you have a thin face, go for larger round or embellished hoops. If you have a round face an elongated hoop or drop style is best.

10- Looking for an easy trick to make your bare legs look longer? Try pumps the same color of your skin, which give the illusion that your legs extend a few extra inches.

11- Spray shirts prone to sweat stains with lemon juice before washing. The natural acid dissolves alkaline sweat reside that could cause yellow discoloration.

12- It’s a myth that loose styles flatter a large bust or a plus-size woman. The area just under the bust is a woman’s smallest torso measurement, so emphasizing it with a structured waistband that hits higher than your natural waist will make you look a size smaller.

13- When in doubt, always choose the smaller denim size, since jeans stretch with wear. 14- Never dry a wet shoe with heat. Let it dry naturally in open air. Heat will dry out leather and the lifespan of the shoe will be cut in half.

15- Before bed, pour two or three tablespoons of baking soda into sweaty workout sneakers and tilt the shoe to distribute the soda evenly. This will eat any odor and absorb perspiration.

16- To prevent clothing from wrinkling in a suitcase, fold everything in plastic dry cleaning bags.

17- If you can’t fit two fingers underneath your bra band comfortably, it’s probably too tight.

18- After a shower, use your hairdryer to de-mist bathroom mirrors in seconds. 19- It might sound cheap, but a hot glue gun works amazingly well to hem skirts, pants and even jeans in an instant.

20- Looking for uses for all the single socks you’ve amassed while doing laundry? When you’ve got aches or pains, fill a sock with dry beans or rice and pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Voila, an instant heating pad.

21- Who has the time to hand wash bras? Machine wash them in cold water in a mesh zipper bag and drape them over a hanger to air dry.

22- If you’re unsure about an impulse or sale purchase, leave it at the store. If you’re still thinking about it when you wake up the next day, buy it.

23- A good shoemaker can fully rebuild your favorite pair, even if the arch is cracked.

24- Give your worn out heels a makeover with glitter. All you need is glue and some glitter. Voila!

25- There’s nothing better than sticking to a signature style you know looks good on you. Slaves to fashion are never always on point!
