1. Always wear the appropriate color undergarments.

If you are wearing a light to mid=tone color, your under garments should be a nude color. Don’t ever attempt white. It will show through.

If you are wearing black or any dark color, wear black under garments. Do not wear nude or a light color. You may think it looks fine in the mirror but when a picture is taken with a flash, your bra and underwear will be captured for all to remember!

Very simple formula:
Light to Mid-Tone color outfit = Nude under garments

Dark colors = Black under garments

2. As far as underwear goes, choose a G-String no matter the fit of the garment.

A G-String is the safest undie route as there will be no visible lines showing through your garment. I promise, it is comfortable and it is such a small amount of material, there is no bunching or moving.

3. Gel ball of foot inserts is a game changer!

I stock up on these babies and leave them in all of my shoes. I even keep a set in my car just in case. When these little pieces of heaven are in your shoes, you will last an additional 4 hours longer on your feet than without the gel inserts, guaranteed. The gel inserts are key for long nights, especially if you are planning on dancing!

I use these everyday, not just for going out and I only buy the gel material. The foam padding versions are not nearly as comfortable as the gel.

4. Hollywood Fashion Tape

Fashion tape is a godsend! The tape is clear and sticky on both sides so it can be used in many ways. If you are wearing an open back and the hem above your bum is not tight to your body, throw a piece of tape on it and stick it to your back! If you have a bra strap that keeps sliding just outside of your garment, tack it down! If you have a hem that is slightly unraveled and don’t have time to sew it, tape it!

Throw a few of these tape strips in your cosmetic bag and clutch  for emergencies and you will have no worries!
