Today’s style marketplace is rife with noteworthy innovations that allow you to fix, and all together avoid, common problems or generally enhance your look. Consider this list of fashion fixes, tricks and tips that’ll keep you looking and feeling your best.

Durga-Kali Reversible Dresses

Don’t worry about spending money on evening gowns and bridesmaid dresses that may never see the light of day again. Each style actually turns into a little black dress that you can use again. With enough color choices to put a Crayola box to shame, you are sure to find something for that special event and still feel comfortable in it for a more low-key night out. Not only are you getting a customized dress, but you are also getting two dresses in one. Starting at $250; Durga-Kali.com


Sometimes you need extra coverage with your wardrobe when things just don’t seem to fit right. That’s when you can simply slip a Camiband around your midriff or bust The multi-use Camiband doubles your wardrobe possibilities by putting all those too-short shirts, low-rise jeans and low-cut tops right back into rotation. It will feel like you have a brand-new wardrobe as you can reuse those clothing items in an innovative, comfortable and stylish way. As an American-made quality accessory, Camibands are available in eight stretch lace colors, spandex and prints. $24.99; camibands.com.
