Button downs or oxfords are a part of my daily wardrobe. They are classic, chic, and versatile. They can be worn dressed up with a suit or pencil skirt or dressed down with jeans, but every woman knows that button downs can be a bear. Finding one that fits properly can feel like treasure hunt, and even when they do fit, pulling around the button area is still pretty common.
About the only time this shirt looks good is when I’m stiffly standing perfectly erect. How often do I stand like this in my daily life? Practically never.
Heaven forbid I slightly slouch or put my hand on my hips.
Can we say wardrobe malfunction? Embarrassing.
Enter my best friend: fashion tape. I’ll admit it took me a while to try it out, and it was only for my wedding emergency kit that I actually purchased it for the first time, but never again will my home be without it.
It’s quite inexpensive if you stay away from name brands. My roll was from Michael’s, and I’ve barely made a dent in it. Only a inch or so of tape does the trick.
I’m sure you’ve heard this advice before, but if you haven’t done it yet, go buy yourself some double-sided tape! I promise it’s worth every penny.
