Treating your wardrobe with a little TLC can go a long way. Whether you’re willing to invest in a robot that will fold your laundry in under a minute or just want to take advantage of pro-tips for making your clothes last longer, there’s apparently a super easy way (or rather, two) to always look polished and picture-perfect. Smile for your selfie, you fabulous thing!
According to celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger (who has dressed A-listers like Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Hudson and Hilary Swank), “a stunning outfit can only be seen for its glory when it is clean, stainless and wrinkle free.” The easiest way to achieve that is by keeping two things in mind: steam and dry clean.
Micaela explains that your home dryer can be harsh on your fave items, so it’s best to leave the care of them to the professionals. “Remember that the dry cleaner is your closet’s best friend, not your dreaded errand,” Micaela reminds us, saying that it’s best to let them take care of any silks, cashmere or particular favorite items that you’d like to keep in the best shape for as long as possible.
When at home, air-drying (to avoid harshness on your clothes) and using a steamer (to smooth out the fabric and leave it wonderfully wrinkle-free) are the keys.
When your clothes are in tip-top shape, it makes you look like you’re on top of your game and ready to take on the world.
