Standing at 5'3", a lot of clothing just doesn't fit right. It's too loose, maxi dresses awkwardly too long, and sometimes the clothes you buy online is just down right sheer (or should I say see-through).

➝ Clothing Life Hacks 1. Loose top or dress Add 2 ribbons to the side of the dress to cinch in the waist.

2. Sheer tops Add a built in lining or cami to hide under garments and bras by using an old t-shirt or cotton fabric.

3. Hem line too long Kimberley Lace Up Maxi Dress Tie the fabric in a knot to shorten the dress and create a more fitted silhouette.

4. Underwear lines showing Add a belt to the dress and fold over to shorten the length, this also works to hide visible underwear/ underwear lines.
