Fashion Fixers: Stylists' Secret Weapons
Fashion Fixers: Stylists' Secret Weapons
Conceal Panty Lines
Anything other than the appearance of a lineless rear (as perfected by Kate Hudson in Alexander Wang) is a no-no. So if you look back and see a visible panty line, ditch the undies you're wearing in favor of Flingz-super-comfortable thongs that sit flat against the skin. Plus, they're packed into little pouches so you can toss one in your bag for back-up.

Banish Back Bulge
On days when your bra feels just a bit snug, avoid dreaded back bulge (flesh that pops out above and below the back of the bra) with the Unbelievabra, which will leave your back looking as smooth as Angelina Jolie's. This bra-and-camisole-in-one provides support for sizes A to E.

Remove Deodorant Marks
You try so hard not to get deodorant on your black top, but those pesky white smudges appear nonetheless. Keep your clothes mark-free like Jessica Alba in her dark armpit-skimming dress with Skid Out, which is a sponge that wipes away marks from deodorant, makeup powder and toothpaste. And this wonder-product is safe to use on just about every kind of fabric!

Keep Pants from Dragging
If you like to wear your jeans long with heels (like Lauren Conrad) but also have the option to wear them with flats without skimming the sidewalk, here's the solution. Roll your pants up to their desired length and put Zakkerz fabric strips with magnets around the cuff. This is a great invention for city-dwellers who walk to work in flats and then change into heels; and with a variety of color options, they go unnoticeable.
