Fall is a very cozy season and also very beautiful as well. A lot of people like it because they can cuddle at home by the fire with a good book drinking some hot tea. It is a perfect way to relax after along working day. And since people need to be well-prepared for the cold weather which fall often brings, they wear cozy and fluffy sweaters during the season.
Sometimes, however, sweaters can play little tricks on us and we need to deal with the problems quickly. To help you with this, we have prepared for you a list of some sweater hacks suitable for the fall season. They can help you in different sticky or annoying situations. Check them out!
#1 Wear your old sweaters longer
The first thing we decided to list for you is, of course, connected with a lot of people’s favorite fall and winter item –sweaters. Sweaters are very cozy and people wear them often both in the fall and the winter to keep them warm. However, the more you wear a sweater, the more fuss appears. This way the sweaters look old and very inappropriate for wearing in public.
If you want to prolong the lives of your favorite sweaters, there is a way to do so. You can use an old razor basically to shave all the fuss and peeling formed as little balls on the surface of your sweater. The razor will help you remove them without damaging the main part of the sweater. This way you can wear your knitted sweater longer.
#2 Sew back your sweater with a bobby pin
The next tip, again connected to sweaters,will help you deal with another kind of problem sweaters bring. Sometimes a part of the knitting of the sweater comes out because it got stuck on some pointy object. The good news is that if this happens to you, you could deal with it quickly and your sweater to look as good as new again.
All you need to do is to get a bobby pin. Using the bobby pin as a needle, get the part of the knitting that came out and sew it back in pushing the bobby pin through the sweater. When it is already on the back side of the sweater, take the bobby pin out. And voila, the loose thread will be hidden inside the sweater. It is a quick and easy hack.
#3 Forget about itchy sweaters
The next hack in our list will actually help you deal with itchy sweaters. You probably have experienced yourself that some sweaters, especially woolen ones, can irritate your skin and can thus be quite uncomfortable. There is a way to deal with this problem pretty quickly actually.
What you could do is put on a long-sleeve to under your sweater. This way the wool of the sweater will not have a direct access to your skin and you will be itchy-free. Another thing that you could do is to make sure all the sweaters you buy have a nice touch on your skin. Thus you need to try them first before buying them.
#4 Wear your summer clothes in the fall
The next hack in our list would be very helpful for those of you who do not have that many clothes, or cannot afford to buy such, or for those of you who simply want to have more outfits for the fall without having to spend extra money on such.
What you could do in this case is to wear your summer clothes in the fall as well. In order to do so, you need to match pieces of summer clothes with pieces or fall/winter ones.
For example, you could wear some of your favorite short summer dresses with a sweater on top and pantyhose under it. This way you will protect your body from the cool fall weather and at the same time you will have a nice new outfit – a skirt with a sweater.
Another outfit idea that you could try is wearing some summer jumpsuit with a sweater on top. This way it will look like you are wearing some new pants with your sweater. It is useful and it would not take you time to put together the pieces of the outfit.
