You're Making Your Outfits Look Cheap If You're Not Doing Any Of These Things

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

You already have all of the elevated basics, trendy pieces, and some serious style. But the small fixes on this list will amp up your chicness that much more, and they’ll solve a few clothing and undergarment problems we all face on the daily (even stylish influencers, I’m sure of it). If you’re not doing the things on this list, your outfits are about to look that much more put together.

This list has little fixes like gently removing tags from the new sheer top you bought. Why do they even sew a tag into a mesh top? I’ll never know. For whatever reason they do it, there’s a seam ripper on this list to fix it. This steel tool with a fabric-protecting tip makes for a clean removal process. It’s way better than chopping off the tag with your desk scissors and leaving that jagged bit of paper and seam behind.

There are styling solutions, like an elastic belt with a low-profile clasp. It’s the perfect one for belting a trendy oversized button-up without figuring out how to tie or tuck a classic belt. But you have to grab the two little pink sponges on this list. They gently scrub off those deodorant streaks that always seem to happen when you’re pulling on clothes in a rush.

You have all of the best pieces in your closet, and you’ve already hand-selected your style. Now, it’s time to elevate the styling details and use a few hacks.

1

Handling Pilling Sweaters & Knits With A Fabric Shaver

It’s time to stop avoiding those pilling sweaters in the back of your closet and finally get a battery-operated fabric shaver. This budget-friendly handheld option will remove all of those fuzzies from thick or lightweight sweaters. That’s because the 2-inch shaving head is adjustable to get as close to your knit fabric as you want. Once you have a smooth sweater, it’s easy to empty the built-in fuzz and pill collector.

2

Taking A Portable Fabric Steamer In Your Suitcase For Wrinkle-Free Vacation Looks

Your clothes are going to get wrinkled in your suitcase — it’s unavoidable. That’s why it’s always worth it to take this portable fabric steamer. It’s compact enough to pack, but it still gives you an 8-foot cord that’s easy to work with no matter what your hotel’s outlet situation is like. This sleek steamer heats up in two minutes and has an auto-shutoff that’s safe for delicate fabrics like silk. So, it’s a way better option than packing an iron.

3

Keeping Classic Gold Plated Hoops In Your Bag At All Times

Keeping these classic 14K gold plated hoops in your bag at all times is an easy way to amp up an outfit on the go. If you’re bored of your go-to outfit, or if you’re going out after work, these lightweight hoops with stainless steel posts are an easy style booster. They’re also hypoallergenic and come in yellow, rose, or white gold tones.

4

Preventing Stressed, Stretched, Or Creased Fabrics With Velvet Hangers

Your outfits will look way more expensive if your fabrics aren’t stressed, stretched, or creased. These velvet hangers are gentle on all of your hanging pieces, thanks to the curved design that works with the shape of your clothes. The velvet cover also prevents creasing and stops clothes from slipping off onto the floor. Not only will these extra-slim hangers help your outfits look better, but they’ll also save closet space.

5

Hanging Delicate Clothing Instead Of Ruining The Look With Your Dryer

Seeing a tag that says “hang dry only” isn’t as annoying with this collapsible clothes drying rack. Honestly, setting up this durable steel rack is easier than all of the steps to start your dryer. Instead of cleaning lint trays and grabbing dryer sheets, this 45-inch tall rack can hold so many clothes.

6

Securing Clothes Or Even Your Socks With Clothing Tape

This clothing tape gives you perfectly fitting tops or wedding guest dresses, and even keeps your no-show socks in place. This non-irritating tape is skin-friendly and won’t leave your fabrics feeling sticky. You won’t need to use safety pins, and this tape is pre-cut into little strips, so they’re quick to put on.

7

Misting Your Everyday Clothes With Anti-Wrinkle Spray Instead Of Reaching For An Iron

Instead of ironing your favorite pieces every day, this anti-wrinkle spray is safe on pretty much any fabric. You can even use this plant-based formula on your curtains. It saves that classic white tee you wear almost every week from your iron, and it works on any moderate wrinkle situation you find in your dresser. Plus, it adds a nice scent of light jasmine, sweet musk, sandalwood, and citrus to your clothes.

8

Removing Stains Quickly With A Pen Before They Set

Use these stain removing pens if you spill something while you’re out. The bleach-free formula will get rid of makeup, that pasta sauce from dinner, and more. It also has a gentle scrubbing tip to really make stains disappear, so they don’t have time to set into your clothes before you get home. Just be sure to use a napkin or paper towel on the spill first.

9

Keeping A Pack Of Socks Around, So You Always Have Fresh & Matching Pairs

Plain socks aren’t a fun thing to buy, but keeping this breathable sock pack around will come in handy. You’ll always have a fresh and matching pair when you’re picking your outfit.
