The Best Products to Keep in Your Fashion Emergency Kit
Fashion emergencies can strike at any moment. I’ve definitely had my fair share!! The worst part? They leave you feeling stressed, especially if you are unprepared. Whether it’s a last-minute outfit change for an important event, a missing button on your favorite shirt, or a makeup mishap, having the right items on hand in a fashion emergency kit can make all the difference. Here are a few of the best products to help you solve any fashion emergency and ensure you look your best. I’ve also included a few products that will help keep your clothing lasting longer!
What to Keep in Your Fashion Emergency Kit
You’ve heard me share about this before! This double-sided adhesive tape keeps clothing in place and prevents wardrobe malfunctions, making it a must-have accessory for any fashion emergency. I always carry some in my purse just in case.
Clips to transform regular bra into racerback
These days it feels like so many tops and dresses have weird backs where you need a very specific bra. I love that these clips are a simple and inexpensive solution to turn any regular bra you may have into a racerback one.
These bra extenders are a must-have for any fashion emergency kit! Just add the extra hooks and eyes to the back of a bra, for extra length and flexibility to the band, making it more comfortable to wear all day long.
If you don’t already have one of these, I highly recommend adding it to your laundry room. Just set out the rack and hang your clothes. Air-drying helps to extend the lifespan of many of your garments. Plus, you can lay things out on it to use some of the products I mention below.
No one wants that awkward situation where you can’t unstick your dress. I’ve been there before and finally discovered Static Guard. It’s a spray-on solution that helps to eliminate static from clothing, prevents clinging, sticking, and static shock. Trust me though…it really does work!
Deodorant Removing Sponge
There is truly nothing worse than getting ready and then noticing a white deodorant stain on your top. This removing sponge is a game changer and can truly prevent the need to change.
Boob Sweat Products
For anyone who has a fuller bust, spring and summer bring out the struggle of sweaty boobs. The worst feeling is when your bra feels wet. But, there is a solution! The Bust Dust is more of a powder while the other option is great if you prefer a lotion texture.
Mini Sewing Kit
I love to keep a mini sewing kit on hand, especially if I’m going to an event or wedding. You never know what could happen! Whether it’s a loose button, stray thread, or even a broken strap, this little sewing kit has you covered.
In a pinch and need to take up a hemline? This tape allows you to hem a garment with just a simple bonding strip, I’ve used this for years, and it is great for a fashion emergency kit. It also works for curtains, pillows, bedding, etc.
We all have been there where your favorite jeans are just a little too tight. This little fashion gadget allows you to create an extended button so you don’t have to get rid of them quite yet.
While this may not be in your mini sewing kit yet, it is a great handy, dandy tool that is great to have on hand for any stray threads or a pull in a sweater. The other thing you can use this for is to open up pockets, especially on blazers and pants.
At Home Dry Cleaning
Sometimes going to the dry cleaner isn’t an option with your timeline, or it is way too expensive. But, this dry care cleaner from Woolite is a game changer. It can dry clean any of your clothing in only 20 minutes.
How to Care For Your Clothes So They Last Longer
Activewear and Swimwear Detergent
I’m trying to get better about extending the life of my clothing. I’ve heard that using a detergent specifically formulated for certain types of fabrics, like activewear and swimwear, will remove sweat, body oils, odor, soil, and chlorine from your clothes while retaining their needed stretch and elasticity.
I saw another influencer share this, and after seeing it had 4.4k five-star reviews, I decided to order it. The best part is that it leaves no residue on the fabric fibers, unlike other detergents.
No more lost socks, tangled bra straps, or ruined delicates. These washing bags make it easy to pop in those items and wash them in a load with all your laundry. I also love to travel with mine. When I get home, all I have to do is pop it in the wash.
