Quick Fixes for Common Fashion Problems

We have all worn a piece of clothing before that has had some sort of clothing malfunction during the time we’ve been wearing it. For the most part, these malfunctions are small inconveniences that make us feel uncomfortable and make the piece of clothing not pleasurable to wear. Often times, these seemingly complex issues can be fixed rather quickly, when you know what to do. Below are quick fixes for some of the most common fashion problems.

  • Gapping of Dress Shirts – There are a few ways to fix this problem, it just depends on what you have available to fix it with when it occurs. If you are out and about and notice your blouse gapping, you can easily fix it with a safety pin and no one will notice. However, if you don’t have a safety pin available, you can temporarily fix it with an earring by using the earring and its back like a safety pin. Once you get home, you can permanently fix the problem by attaching a small piece of Velcro on the inside of the shirt in the problem area.
  • Zipper Problems – The two most common types of problems regarding zippers are when, 1) the zipper won’t glide easily, and 2) when the zipper loses traction and doesn’t stay up. The good news is that there is a solution for each of these issues.

    Zipper Doesn’t Glide Easily: To fix this problem, simply take two strips of masking tape and put one piece on each side of the zipper to protect the material. Then, get some WD-40 and spray on the zipper itself. You’ll find that the non-gliding zipper will move easily now.

    Zipper problems, boys shirt and pants outfit, belt problems, collar gapping, boys dress belts, common fashion problems: Okay, so to fix this issue, you will line both sides of the zipper with masking tape, just like for the above zipper problem. Then you will spray the zipper with hairspray that contains lacquer. This will give the zipper the resistance it needs to stay up while you’re wearing it.

  • Belts – Oh, the joy of belts. Not only do they serve a purpose for holding our pants up, but they also make great accessories too! More than likely, you’ve purchased a belt before that quickly became one of your favorites, but for some reason or another it became too tight and uncomfortable to wear. You can fix this problem by taking a knife or other sharp and pointy object and puncturing a hole at the end of the belt so it will fit looser. On the flip side, if you have a belt that is too loose, poke a hole in at the opposite end of the belt to make it tighter.

Royal Wedding Flower Girl Dresses

Dear Valued Customer,

I’m sure by now you’ve seen pictures on the internet of the Royal Wedding between Catherine Middleton and Prince William which took place on April 29, 2011. Therefore, I’m sure you also noticed how gorgeous Catherine’s wedding dress was. It was a very simple dress featuring beautiful lace detail and a flowing train, giving it the look of elegance many brides try to achieve.


While Catherine was the center of attention, there were four other people in the Royal Wedding who also deserve some attention. Of course, I’m referring to the four young flower girls. Catherine did a perfect job picking out the style of dresses for these little ones, which is something you brides-to-be can learn from. Below are a few suggestions to help you find the perfect flower girl dresses for your upcoming wedding.

  • Use Matching Material – The first comparison you should make when looking at the four little darlings in the Royal Wedding, is that their dresses are all made with the same material as Catherine’s wedding gown. This is very important if you want your flower girls’ dresses to compliment your wedding dress.

  • Order the Same Color – The second thing you should notice is that the flower girls in the Royal Wedding were wearing dresses that were the same shade of ivory as the bride’s. If you truly want to pick out flower girl dresses that compliment yours, then you need to make sure they are the same color as your wedding gown. If you want some color on your flower girls, look for dresses that have a colored sash around the waist or some colored embroidery. Just make sure the primary color of the dress matches your own.

  • Find a Complimentary Style – Finally, take a second look at Catherine’s wedding dress. Yes, it’s beautiful…but it’s a somewhat simple gown with elegant details. Now, look at her flower girl dresses – they are also simple, but they have a few elegant details of their own. For instance, the sleeves were puffed, the waist was accented with a sash that formed a beautiful bow in back and the hemline of the dress had a gorgeous layered look. While those details seem to be small, it’s those details that made the dresses compliment Catherine’s as well as they did.
