Every fashionista knows that putting together a great look can often be fraught with problems, annoyances, or plain old doldrums. However, ever-clever apparel and accessory designers are continually bringing innovations to market that help ensure your efforts to rock chic, stylish and fresh looks don't hit a snag.  Here's one notable group of fixes, tricks and helpful conveniences to help you thwart a litany of fashion and footwear frustrations and even create looks that are unforgettable:

 

High Heel Wraps (www.AlasDesignsLlc.com)- $19.95

High Heel Wraps are a clever solution that transforms the look of high heels both inside and out, expanding your wardrobe options. They even make your high heels more comfortable, and who wouldn't love that?  These removable wraps, available in a wide variety of designs and colors, make it quick and easy to change the look of high heels for any occasion. The functional benefits of this product are noteworthy. For one, the heel cushion and padded insole provides an enhanced level of comfort. Also, the product's friction reducing grips will decrease slippage. An optional removable strap provides for even more support. High Heel Wraps will not only decorate your shoes, but will also help protect it from nicks, scratches, and dents. Looks, comfort, durability…this product has you "covered."

Tees By Tina Body Flattering Fashions (www.TeesByTina.com) - $55-$85

Exhausted of the never-ending search for fashions that have a flattering fit and are also comfortable enough to wear all day or night? Look no further than Tees by Tina—an ultra-comfortable fashion solution for every woman. Ideal for both day and play, Tees by Tina offers a complete lifestyle collection of tops, bottoms, dresses, skirts, leggings, active and maternity wear. The garments are all expertly crafted using seamless technology and a unique blend of the softest yarns with incredible memory so the body-hugging products are "always your size." This clothing line really is "one size fits all," and can be worn as standalone items or in layers.

CaliMojos Color-Changing Flip Flops (www.CaliMojos.com) - $24.95

Can't make up your mind what color flip flops to wear? Always looking for that item that'll make your friends say "wow"? Let color-changing CaliMojos flip flops work for you! CaliMojos, SolarActive International's first line of color-changing footwear, are not your ordinary flip-flops — indoors, the straps are clear and opaque, but step outside and the sun's UV rays instantly activate a vibrant color-changing transformation. Using top-quality and durable materials, CaliMojos are lightweight, very comfortable, and available in four beautifully vivid colors: orange, pink, blue, and white. With two design options to choose from–tropical/floral and butterfly–each pair is accented with colorful, rhinestone adorned straps.  Keeping the environment in mind, CaliMojos are also recyclable and use materials free of phthalate and nickel.

Solemates High Heeler (www.TheSoleMates.com) - $9.95

There are many occasions when gals want to wear high heels but the terrain makes it difficult. Enter Solemates—a product that helps preserve high heels and the hazards related to getting heels caught in pavement cracks or sinking into grass. Discreet and easy to use, the Solemates High Heeler attaches easily to heel tips. By increasing the surface area at the base of the heel, it reduces the pressure on this area and prevents the heel from sinking into grass, falling into cracks and getting dirty and nicked in kind. The patented design is mechanically engineered to fit snugly on most heels, and the flexible material grips securely without damaging the heel or compromising the aesthetics of the shoe. The item is available in three sizes (narrow, classic, and wide) and four colors (clear, gold, silver and black).

Body Glide for Her Anti-Chafing Solution (www.BodyGlide.com) - $7.99-$9.99

Chafing. Need I say more? It's annoying, it hurts, and it can actually mark and scar the body. This is why I love Body Glide for Her. The product is ideal for sensitive areas where rubbing from your undergarments and clothing is irritating or causes chafing. Use it with bras and sports bras or any other undergarment or clothing item to alleviate the abrasive feeling. It's also great for feet. Formulated with Vitamin F Forte to help keep skin soft and moisturized, the Body Glide brand is an effective barrier against both skin-on-skin and clothing-on-skin rubbing. Plus, Body Glide has the added benefit of hydrating and smoothing dry skin. Body Glide, Body Glide for Her, Chamois Glide and Skin Glide brand products are all known for being non-greasy, non-messy and reliable.

Spreadshirt Custom Clothing (www.Spreadshirt.com) - Starting at $18.90

Sometimes, the clothing you want to wear doesn't exist-yet. Luckily Spreadshirt is here to make your customized clothing wishes come true. If you don't have your own design idea, you can find designs created by other fashion fanatics. All t-shirts and designs are availed on Spreadshirt's Web site—an e-commerce platform for the creation, buying, and selling of things that consumers love to share, use, and carry. From t-shirts and hoodies, to backpacks and dorm accessories, Spreadshirt has over 150 products for students of all ages to choose from–all customizable. All designs may be placed on any available products, whether that be t-shirts, tanks, totes, coffee mugs, aprons, baby and kids clothing, and more. For a cool fashion photo trick, I particularly like the mirror image t-shirts that read properly in a picture, like the "#selfie" design.

Geluxury Skin-Softening Slippers and Gloves (www.Geluxury.com) - $49.95

No matter the season, dry skin can persist and finding a reliable skin-saver can be a daunting task amid an industry rife with lotions and potions. One tried and true solution is Geluxury gloves and slippers, which revitalize the skin on hands and feet and leave it feeling soft and silky. Using a patent- pending gel formula, Geluxury leaves skin noticeably smoother, richer and revived. The gel liner is non-greasy and requires no clean-up after use. In fact, the only step required is to simply slip on a pair of Geluxury gloves or slippers; the gel lining does all the work! The key to the success for both products is the healing ability of the 7 botanical oils embedded in the gel liner: Avocado, Olive, Jojoba, Mineral, Grape Seed, Soybean, and Canola. Wear it once and you'll be a true believer.

Viviscal Hair Filler Fibers (www.Viviscal.com) - $24.99

Viviscal Hair Filler Fibers are easy-to-use, microscopic, electrostatically charged fibers that adhere to your existing hair to instantly add volume and fullness to hair, also covering thinning hair by concealing visible scalp. Give limp, lifeless hair a boost and create dramatic, party-ready hairstyles. One application takes just 30 seconds to apply and lasts all day, even in wind and rain. Available in six natural colors (bronze, black, gray, light brown, dark brown and auburn), the Fibers are 100% drug-free, suitable for men and women, contain no messy dyes to stain or smear, and washes out easily with shampoo.

Clipa Instant Handbag Hanger(www.Clipa.us) - $14.99-$39.99

When you have a stylish handbag, the last place you want to put it is on the floor—especially in restaurants, bathrooms or other public places. Clipa, which means "instant" in Romanian, is a decidedly attractive handbag hanger that goes on—not in—the bag for quick and easy use at any time. The name might be Romanian but Clipa is made in the USA, holds up to 45 pounds, and won't tarnish. Clipa's "can't lose" auto close system stays on your bag and works nearly anywhere—from tables and chairs to rails and fences and beyond. I've used a variety of handbag hangers and Clipa is by far the most versatile and durable. Also fashion-adaptable, Clipa comes in a variety of colors, designs, and metals including titanium, hematite, brushed gold, and silver. 

PhoneFetcher Cell Phone Tether (www.PhoneFetcher.com) - $12.99-$18.99

We've all been there…digging around your purse, backpack or bag for a cell phone that's buried deep in the abyss. Now you can keep it on a short and stylish leash, instead! PhoneFetcher allows you to summon your device by just following the leash right to your phone! This simple, low-cost tether uses a specially engineered plug that inserts into a cell phone ear jack. PhoneFetcher connects on the opposite end to a handbag, purse, gym bag, back pack, baby bag, belt loop and more. Available in three styles: a stretchable "sport" bungee model in nine colors, a "chain" model in three finishes and a jeweled "bling" model in nine colors. Let it hang outside your bag when it isn't attached to your phone so you will be reminded not to leave your phone behind again!
