We've all been there: Had to wear a backless dress when our convertible bra was M.I.A. (we really do need more of those in our summer wardrobes). Had our makeup perfect only to see lipstick on our teeth. Or the havoc that breaking in our new flats wreaks on our feet. But no more! Today I'm going to share some of my favorite fashion hacks that I found around the web over the past couple years. Not only were they great ideas, but I also have had a chance to try all 9, and trust me they are major life savers!
1. Magnate strips to organize your metal hair and beauty products
All you need to do is purchase a magnate strip and place it where ever you would like to keep your bobby pins, nail file, tweezers, even an eyelash curler and it works wonders to keep all of these things organized!
2. Wrap rubber bands around the ends of clothes hangers to help garments stay put
Having trouble keeping your camis and tanks on hangers? Simply wrap a rubber band around the end of the hanger and there you have it! A simple barrier to keep your clothes from sliding off.
3. How to solve that bra with backless dress problem
In a pinch and can't find a convertible bra for that adorable backless dress? No fear! All you need is some nylon band. For this trick, just attach the nylon band to the band of your bra and crisscross them and attach them in the front just as you would a convertible bra, and there you have it!

5. Never get lipstick on your teeth again with the finger trick
Too keep lipstick from getting on your teeth, just use the finger trick after applying! All you need to do is after applying lipstick, simply close your mouth around your index finger and then draw your finger out which removes any excess lipstick that could get on your teeth.
6. How to keep your zipper up
Have a broken zipper or a loose one that simply won't stay up? All you need is a small, thin key ring. Simply attach it to the zipper pull and loop it over the button, presto! There you have it a fix to a broken zipper!
7. Shower rings to organize scarves
If you are any thing like me, you own a plethora of scarves. Therefore it's a little hard to keep them all organized. However this genius hack I found on Pinterest its the perfect way to keep your scarves organized. You simply place shower curtain rings on either a hanger or rod (as seen above) and then you have the perfect way to organize your scarves.
8. No more smelly shoes
To neutralize odor in your shoes is just make some baking soda sachets and place them in the toe over night. Then you will have odor free shoes! This is an especially good tip for the summer!
9. How to break in flats quickly
We've all been there. We need to break in flats fast but somehow always end up with blistered feet. However this hack will put at stop to that! All you need to do is grab a hair dryer, throw on a pair of thick socks, and then our flats. Next just use the hair dryer to apply heat to the shoes while you are wearing them with the socks for about 5 minutes, this will help stretch them out and make them comfortable!
