FIDM Fashion Club has partnered with Caché on our exclusive homecoming trends blog series. Today's topic? How to put together the ultimate homecoming fashion emergency kit!
It’s your big night, and that means any little thing that might throw it off becomes a huge point of stress and anxiety. We’re here to bring you all the little tips and tricks to avoid disaster, and own the event with confidence.
This one is an absolute must for stubborn dresses that just won’t stay in place. Tape loose, draped fabrics to your skin and avoid an embarrassing revelation.
Deodorant Removing Sponge:
Just imagine: you’re in a gorgeous, new, darkly colored dress, when out of nowhere appears an unsightly deodorant stain, out to punish you for smelling good. Fear not. These genius little sponges are an absolute godsend.
The plan was to bust a move on the dance floor, but instead you bust a seam on your dress. Be sure to have a sewing kit, and a deft pair of hands for stitching up any unexpected wardrobe wounds.
Travel Size Wrinkle Releaser:
Fact: certain fabrics simply wrinkle more easily than others. We love this product for ensuring your dress stays smooth all night long.
Travel Size Static Guard:
Avoid shocking situations with this little savior.
Lint Removing Sheets:
The only thing clinging to you should be your date. You definitely need these if you’re wearing an LBD.
Foot Petals/Heel Savers:
Every girl has been there: you’re hours into the night, looking fabulous in brand new heels, but you simply can’t take the pain any longer, and end up dancing the night away barefoot. Nip this one in the bud with some comfortable insoles.
Yes, your hair looked amazing at the beginning of the night (hint: that’s when you should be taking all your pics!) but all that partying is guaranteed to wear down even the simplest coiffure. Have a hair band ready for a second act quick change.
The last thing you want is to get sidelined by a little cut. They also double as defense against sudden blisters.
This one’s probably obvious—who ever leaves the house without one—but a nail file is a girl’s best friend. Make sure your perfect manicure stays that way.
