What Is Fashion Tape & How I Use It

I fight with my loose silky camis more than any other piece in my closet. They‘re so slippery, they have the tendency to move around threatening nip slips, bra reveals, and other wardrobe malfunctions. My solution: fashion tape.

Fashion tape is fabric safe double-sided tape (it’s essentially repurposed toupee tape, so it’s safe for skin) that secures clothes where you need them in a pinch. I use it to secure necklines, straps, create temporary hems, and close slits for more modest occasions. It’s a nice tool to have around to temporarily fix a little fashion issue on the spot. I  keep a few emergency strips in places like my travel and makeup bags. Pro-tips: snip the strips in halves or even quarters depending on the job to make the pack last longer.

I’ve linked my favorite fashion tape brand in an Amazon shop along with my other closet must-haves (includes my favorite petite hangers if you’re a similar size to myself).
