With the so-called silly season upon us, our desire to break loose means we’re wearing clothes we normally wouldn’t. It’s more like the dangerous season of avoiding wardrobe malfunctions!
Alexandria Blaelock, author of Build Your Signature Wardrobe: How to look good and feel confident in four steps says, “you can’t be suave and sophisticated when you have a wardrobe malfunction. Even if you’re not a celebrity, there’ll be embarrassing reminders and debate over whether it was deliberate. Avoiding them should be high on your list of festive preparations.”
Here are Blaelock’s tips for avoiding wardrobe malfunctions:
- Take care of your clothes: Follow the washing instructions, fix falling hems, loose buttons, and so on. You can confidently wear them knowing that they will not fail you.
- Inspect garments carefully: Just as you do pre-purchase, check your clothes before you put them on, and when you take them off. If it’s defective, don’t wear it – this is a malfunction looking for an opportunity. Lay it aside for repairs.
- Have a manicure: A lot of modern clothing is knitted, and just like your tights, a small snag can have them unravelling.
- Maintain your weight: Most woven garments have a small amount of “ease”; it’s just an extra inch or two that permits freedom of movement without worrying about tearing it. However, if your body gets a little larger, and the garments a little tighter, something is going to give.
- Carry a clothing grade adhesive: Even the best prepared will occasionally face a malfunction. Carrying something like a Style Stick, toupee tape, or a bunch of safety pins will help you get through the night with modesty intact.
These five tips will put you on the path to avoiding wardrobe malfunctions, and give you the confidence to step out in style.
