So this is one of those topics that are really important, whether you just enjoy fashion, don’t care about it or have a career in fashion, everyone needs to know a few hacks!
These hacks aren’t normal “fashion hacks” where I tell you how to wash your clothes, stop your jeans from smelling and all that jazz; it’s more of making life easier when it comes to dressing.
STYLE HACK NO.1
My first styling hack is probably one of the most done ones – rolling the jeans! It’s a bit frustrating when you buy some amazing jeans but they’re so long, and they don’t fit in your boots and it’s just all over the place. Depending on how high you like your jeans, I tend to roll mine twice – making sure the rolls aren’t too big or too small is important because they can look all over the place and totally throw off your outfit.
STYLE HACK NO. 2
This style hack is for those who wear oversized outfits to either cover up shape or give them shape. Tip no.1 with that, wearing oversized anything won’t give you shape. Adding a belt to the outfit will compliment your body no matter what shape you are. Make sure when wearing a belt, keep it high waisted so it shows off/ gives you shape.
STYLE HACK NO.3
This hack is super simple and easy, everyone should know it – rolling up your sleeves. Just like the jeans hack, it’s the exact same when you’re wearing a button up shirt and it’s either too hot or you don’t want the long sleeves. Cuffing it is also another idea – keep the rolling/cuffing either slightly above the elbow, or slightly below it. This hack gives your outfit more of an edge and is super trendy!
STYLE HACK NO. 4
This is another shaping hack; when you’re wearing a shirt that’s either really baggy or just a bit bigger on you, tuck the front of the shirt in whatever bottoms you’re wearing. This goes for, skirt, jeans, shorts, trousers – everything! Doing this will also give you more shape and it’s stylish. Tip: If you’re wearing high-waisted jeans, always tuck in the front of the shirt.
STYLE HACK NO. 5
Dressing up is always fun, especially when it’s really special events; this hack is one of the most important hacks – if you’re wearing anything that’s backless, DO NOT WEAR A STRAPLESS BRA!! Whether or not wearing bra’s makes you uncomfortable, going to an important event and having a long strap stick out isn’t flattering at all. There are so many names for backless bras/ chicken fillets/ sticky bras, but every girl needs one, they’re a lifesaver! Not only are they perfect for a backless outfit, but they’re also great for when you’re wearing something with a lower cut or even a bit of the side coming out. If you’re comfortable now wearing bra’s, I also recommend getting nipple covers.

STYLE HACK NO. 6
This lucky last hack is probably the most important hack, it’s also one of the most basic ones. Finding a staple accessory – a bag, shoes, jewelry. Staples turn your outfit from boring to fun and chic! If you’re someone who likes to wear neutral colour outfits, wear a colourful bag or shoes – it really brightens the outfit. Statement pieces are a must when it comes to everyday styling.
