5 Tools All Fashionistas Should Have

My mom likes to say that you're clothes are only as nice as long as you take care of them, and I think she's right. Clothing care is important and something that I haven't really seen being talked about all that much in the fashion blogging community. I'm here to tell you about the things I always like to keep on hand for my fashion emergencies.

  • Clothes Steamer: Brian introduced me to his mini clothes steamer and it has been a GAME CHANGER! It gets out all the wrinkles in no time at all - in fact, much less time than it would take to iron your clothes. They're pretty inexpensive for the most part and perfect when you're in a pinch. Brian and I both work in politics and therefore have a lot of meetings so looking our best with non-wrinkled clothes is kind of a big priority to us so this is a great investment. You can get them for less than $30 so I highly recommend them!
  • Iron: Despite everything I just said about having a clothes steamer, they can't get my clothes crisp and nice like an iron does. My iron comes in handy when I need to press my clothes that have pre-wrinkles, like, my pleated skirts and my crisp, tailored shirts. 
  • Sweater Depiller: I love my Autumn sweaters but I hate when they pill. Pilling can make my expensive sweaters look so frumpy and cheap. Luckily, I got this handy sweater comb (it's around $5) that scrapes away the fuzz while leaving your sweater intact. LOVE it!
  • Lint Roller: If you wear a lot of black I would always keep a lint roller on hand. My apartment building has a lot of dogs and while they're really cute to pet and play with, guarantee, their fur will always stick to my black clothes. A lint roller is a definite must.
  • Stain remover pen: Clumsy eaters rejoice! I was so excited when they first came out with these because I'm always struggling to not spill coffee or whatever food I'm eating on my clothes. Keeping a stain remover pen in your bag is always a good idea. 

Are there any other tools you would add to this list? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I definitely need a stain remover pen! I always spill my coffee everywhere haha.

  2. I should definitely get myself a lint roller! It's such a useful little tool to have, especially with work clothes - everything sticks to them for some reason!

  3. A steamer has been a game changer for me, for sure! So much easier to use than an iron.

  4. I desperately need a clothing steamer! I have been saying I was going to get one forever but still haven't invested in a one.

  5. Good list, I would only add a good gentle detergent to the list, because if you're investing in your wardrobe you want to be able to wash items without ruining them or your skin afterwards.

  6. Yes! I absolutely agree with all of these, my steamer and my lint roller are my sidekicks and now I need that sweater comb.

  7. I actually have a sweater de-piller for my couch haha. But yes to all of these!

  8. With two dogs and a cat, lint rollers are necessary! I definitely want to get a sweater de-piller and a steamer too!

  9. Ooh I nee da sweater de-piller! This time of year when it's freezing outside and in my heatless closet, I'm tempted to iron all my clothes just so they'll be warm when I put them on.

  10. Oh lint rollers...haha I never have one when I need one!

  11. Ah, I couldn't live without my iron! Having clothes that are free from wrinkles is super important to me.

  12. A steamer has been a game changer for me! I HATE ironing, so steaming something is easier, faster and less frightening than ironing.
