Thankfully, designers are continuously producing innovations that help us address these issues before we’re caught in a fashion faux pas. I’ve put together the following list of my personal favorite fashion tricks and fixes sure to keep the frustrations at a minimum while helping create unforgettable looks:

Sometimes, the clothing you really want doesn’t even exist…yet. Luckily, Spreadshirt is here to make your customized clothing wishes come true. Even if you don’t have your own design idea, you can find designs by other fashion fanatics, all available on Spreadshirt’s website—an e-commerce platform for the creation, buying, and selling of things that consumers love to share, use, and carry.

From t-shirts and hoodies, to backpacks and dorm accessories, Spreadshirt has over 150 products for students of all ages–all customizable. All designs may be placed on any available products—including t-shirts, tanks, totes, coffee mugs, aprons, baby and kids clothing, and more. For a cool fashion photo trick, I particularly like the mirror image t-shirts that read properly in a picture, like the “#selfie” design.

High Heel Wraps are a clever solution that transforms the look of high heels both inside and out, expanding your wardrobe options. These removable wraps, available in a wide variety of designs and colors, make it quick and easy to change the look of high heels for any occasion.

The functional benefits of this product are noteworthy. For one, the heel cushion and padded insole provides an enhanced level of comfort. The product’s friction reducing grips also decrease slippage. An optional removable strap provides for even more support. High Heel Wraps will not only decorate your shoes, but will also help protect it from nicks, scratches, and dents.

Solemates High Heeler ( – $9.95

Solemates Classic

There are many occasions when gals want to wear high heels, but the terrain makes it difficult. Enter Solemates—a product that helps preserve high heels and the hazards related to getting heels caught in pavement cracks or sinking into grass. Discreet and easy to use, the Solemates High Heeler attaches easily to heel tips. By increasing the surface area at the base of the heel, it reduces the pressure on this area and prevents the heel from sinking, jamming, or getting nicked.

The patented design is mechanically engineered to fit snugly on most heels, and the flexible material grips securely without damaging the heel or compromising the aesthetics of the shoe. The item is available in three sizes (narrow, classic, and wide) and four colors (clear, gold, silver, and black).
