Pinterest has a lot of great ideas and hacks to offers. You can find plenty of amazing tips on home decor, easy and tasty recipes, awesome DIY projects, smart fashion hacks, and so much more. And when I mentioned fashion hacks, I mean budget-friendly and time-saving tips. These are tricks that are all easy to do and will make you look great for the day.

Sounds nice right? And down below I gathered some of the best Pinterest fashion hacks that are worth trying and actually work. So check them out and let me know what you think!

Use Stale Bread to Clean Suede Shoes

If you happen to have some stale bread in your kitchen, don’t throw it away just yet. You can actually use it to clean your dirty and dusty suede shoes. The rough texture of the bread acts like sandpaper that when gently rubbed over suede, takes the dirt off.

De-Pill Sweaters

With overtime use, your favorite sweaters (especially knitted ones) start to pill. To easily de-pill them, all you have to do is lay the item flat and softly shave the sweater with a razor using short strokes. Clean up the excess off after with a lint brush or tape.

Iron Your Collar Using a Hair Straightener

If you think that your hair straightener is only for hair, then think again. You can also use this handy iron to smooth wrinkles on your shirt’s collar and even between shirt buttons. Impressive right?

Unshrink Clothes

We all hate it when our favorite shirt shrinks after washing. Luckily though, you can easily de-shrink it by simply filling a bucket of lukewarm water, 1/2 cup of baby shampoo or conditioner, and soak it for 30 minutes. Wash and rinse after and it’ll stretch it as it dries.

Rid Shoe Scuffs with a Banana

This may sound silly, but this trick works well for getting rid of shoe scuffs. All you have to do is rub a banana peel on the scuffed area of your shoes until the marks are removed, then wipe with a clean cloth after.

Clean Off Your White Shoes with Baking Soda

White sneakers are comfortable, cute, and perfect for many outfits. And because you frequently used them, they ‘re prone to get dirt and stains. But this shouldn’t stop you from wearing them. You can easily clean them with just the use of basic home ingredients: baking soda and vinegar.

Just mix both equal parts until you’ve made a paste, apply to your shoes, and let it sit for 2-3 hours. Brush with a soft bristle brush after and rinse them off. They’ll look like new again in no time!

De-Wrinkle Your Shirt

If you don’t have much time in the morning and your shirt needs ironing, hang it in the bathroom before you take a hot shower and the steam will help get the wrinkles out quickly.

Remove Sweat Stains with Lemon Juice

Here’s a simple and all-natural way to remove sweat stains from your white clothes. You just have to mix equal parts of lemon juice and water in a bowl and rub it on the affected areas to clean the stain. Leave this on for 20 minutes before rinsing.

Break in New Shoes

To prevent getting blisters from your new kicks, try applying some baby powder, petroleum jelly, or deodorant to the heel of your foot before putting them on.

Keep Your Jeans From Fading

Your pants are one of the most expensive pieces of clothing you use every day. And to maintain its dark color, try adding a 1/2 cup of white vinegar to the final rinse cycle of your laundry.

Perfect Cuffed Sleeves

If you want to achieve a perfectly cuffed sleeve, simply keep the top button buttoned while you roll. This only takes a minute to master and will make you look great.


Whether you’re looking for some quick clothing fixes or you just want to try some cute fashion ideas, then these Pinterest fashion hacks from the list above have got you covered. They’re all easy to do, and will save you so much time and money. And the best thing is that they’re FREE. So give them a try and let me know what you think!
