Oops! I did it again
In the professional environment, what you wear can impact how far you get up the ladder. If nothing else, when the work is dull, planning a sharp outfit will give you at least one reason to get out of bed in the morning. Just as a well-put-together look will help put a bounce to your step, a wardrobe malfunction can at best embarrass you, and at worse, kill your image altogether. Here are some common dressing disasters, and some quick hacks.

Build yourself an emergency kit

Carrying a tiny wardrobe malfunction kit can help keep the stress at bay. Here’s what to stash in your kit. A couple of needles A few spools of thread in a number of basic colours A few spare buttons• Masking tape• Safety pins Bobby pins Clear nail polish Nail polish remover Aspirin

Popped button

The solution for this is simple if you have the emergency kit, but if you don’t, you can pass a paper clip through the button hole and clip the other flap together, and secure with some packing tape. This will at least get you through that presentation without exposing your goodies to your colleagues.

Ripped hem

Fold the hem and hold in place with some good strong tape. If you don’t put much stress on it, it’ll hold till you can get it repaired.

Stuck zipper

Use a piece of soap on the stubborn zipper for a smooth run. If your zipper pull is broken, replace with a key ring for a funky new look.


Fight sweat stains with lemon juice. Tea and coffee stains can be treated with baking soda, club soda, or vinegar. Use milk on ink drops. Wipe away lipstick and makeup stains. Just remember to treat the stain as soon as you can so that it doesn’t have time to set.

Pokey underwire

If your underwire broke loose and is threatening to stab you in the chest, use a band aid to secure the rogue end and prevent injuries.
