Tip of the week: Quick fixes for wardrobe malfunctions

Wig tape; Hem tape; Safety pins; Lint sheets

Wig tape. Here’s a good example of a simple product that works better than most miracle products you might see advertised on TV. Made to hold on toupees or wigs, this “super-duper” double-sided tape can force a wayward lapel to lie flat or tack up a fallen hem.

Hem tape. A true hem tape provides a more permanent fix for a torn hem without requiring you to get out a needle and thread. Pros who dress models or TV talking heads use it regularly.

Safety pins. These old standbys sometimes can be the best choice, even though they’re not always easy to hide. Just be sure to keep a few different sizes close at hand so you have the right pin for the job.

Lint sheets. The lint sheets you use in a clothes dryer remove lint as well as a lint brush does, and they’re far easier to carry.
