Winter Fashion Hacks Everyone Should Know!

With winter approaching and the cold weather already at our doorsteps, Max Agency has gathered a list of the best winter fashion hacks to keep you warm while also staying on trend this winter!

#1. Make your tights last longer by freezing them. Run the tights under cold water, put them in a plastic bag and into the freezer they go! Let them thaw the next day and they are ready to be worn. This process strengthens the fibres of the tights to last.

#2. Soften your itchy sweaters with water and hair conditioner. Create a mixture of water and conditioner to slather the sweater in and let it sit for an hour. Then rinse it and let it air dry. Your sweater will be much less itchy on your skin.

#3. Fold your knitted clothing instead of hanging them to avoid stretching and loosing shape. Check out a neat way to fold your sweaters onto a hanger below from Cosmopolitan:

#4. Remove bad odours from your boots with tea bags. Leave a few dry teabags in your boots overnight to soak up the bad odours and moisture.

#5. If your clothes get covered in little annoying fuzzies, simply run a razor lightly over the clothing to remove them.

#6. Still want to wear those cute summer outfits? Layer up! Wear a turtleneck under your outfit or leggings under your ripped jeans. Find a way to layer and still look cute!

#TipTuesday: Little Black Dress

#TipTuesday is a series Max Agency — a successful model and talent management agency in Canada  — will be doing every week where we share helpful tips for the industry! This could be tips on auditions, bookings, and more!

This week’s tip is: “One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress.” —Karl Lagerfeld

The “little black dress” is legendary in the fashion industry. Known for it’s classic and simple look, the LBD actually has quite the history.

1920’s

Coco Chanel was the first designer to bring the little black dress to light in an issue of the American Vogue. This action changed the idea of black solely being worn for mourning purposes and reinvented it as a more chic option for women.

1930’s

The little black dress grew in popularity with the help of Hollywood and movies. Many actresses were featured wearing the garments as wearing black looked better on screen for black and white films.

1950’s

The notion of the LBD turned into one that was more risque. Women who wore them were seen as less innocent and wholesome. At the same time, they become more common and affordable due to the different materials they were being made from.

1960’s

Black dresses got smaller as the younger generations wanted to wear shorter and more revealing clothes. The dresses became more revealing in other ways as well, with additions of slits in the skirts and sheerer fabrics.

1980’s

The funkiness of the 80’s transferred to the new styles of little black dresses. The designs became a little less simple and began incorporating other dress styles that were popular at that time.

1990’s

While little black dresses remained a popular choice for evening wear, colour returned as a trend in fashion.  The LBD returned to simpler ways once again, some long and some short.

2000’s

With body insecurity becoming so common, the little black dress has truly made it’s return as black is found to be the most flattering colour. The trend of simplicity has also made it’s return, making the LBD a go to option for all special events.
