Safety pins are a great tool for when you need to fix a wardrobe malfunction in a hurry. You can use a safety pin to hide an exposed bra strap by pinning to the inside of your shirt. Safety pins can also help hold pieces of a broken chain together.

Got a broken zipper? they can help with that too, use a safety pin as a replacement tab. They’re also a great last resort for holding material together when you have no time to sew.

Plus, here a bunch of DIYs you can try making with safety pins.

2. Double sided tape

Jennifer Lopez’s epic Grammy outfit probably would not have happened without the help of double sided tape.

Use double sided tape to keep knee high socks and stockings from falling, as a temporary hold for loose hems, and to hold fabric in place for plunging shirts or dresses. For bustier girls, it’s also a great tool for keeping gaping holes in your button down shirts closed, which helps avoid any awkward stares below the neck.

3. Clear nail polish

Clear nail polish doesn’t just make your nails look pretty, paint on a coat to keep your costume jewellery from tarnishing. To stop a stocking run in its tracks, paint on clear nail polish on both ends of the run. Also use it to save time when threading needles by adding to the end of unruly thread.

4. Permanent markers

5. Rubber Elastics

If you, like me prefer to hang most of your clothes it’s pretty annoying when you have shirts that constantly fall off. Add some rubber bands on the ends of the hanger and problem solved. If you have a long belt that you want to wear high on your waist, add a small elastic to the same end as the belt buckle to hold up the long hanging end.
