Two pairs of jeans in one? It's about freaking time. The European denim label, Salsa Fits My Life, just introduced a pair of reversible denims currently being sold in high-end boutiques. One side is a dark wash, the other is a light wash. But once you own them that quickly becomes: one side is dirty, the other side is still relatively clean. The line, which retails for $179, is called "The Two," but a better name might have been, "How have we never thought of this before?"
It's times like these I'm grateful that a few brilliant thinkers are still tackling life's everyday problems. Consider a few other solutions to fashion dilemmas spawned in the 21st century.
Problem: Sandwich belly. One of the worst feelings--busting out of a pair of jeans that were comfortable only an hour before lunch. Why do you have to be so delicious, ham, and yet so cruel?
Solution: Adjust-a-button. This little life-changer functions like an earring for your fly. Pin and fasten the button to any layer of denim to loosen or tighten waistbands instantly. It offers an inch and a half of give, otherwise known as a little bit of heaven when you're feeling terribly bloated.
Problem: Winter clothes that add 10 pounds. For those of us "blessed" with seasons, we welcome the fall for adorable wardrobe additions like cardigans, blazers and tights. But come January, those items are for the sick and twisted. In negative 20 degree weather, all you want to wear is a bearskin rug. Bulky wool turtleneck sweaters, puffy coats, thick lined pants with leggings underneath all amount to an extra 10 pounds of pure fabric.
Solution: Uniqulo's HeatTech. Sleek, thin-lined tanks, tops and turtlenecks look like fall-wear but feel like a furnace. The patented, silky-smooth material generates heat by absorbing your body's moisture in microscopic fabric pockets. Thankfully, it also has an anti-bacterial agent to minimize odor.
Problem: Bra straps. They demand to be seen. At least they're better than strapless bras which you only realize is around your waist when you wonder when you put on a belt.
Solution: Tweakerz. These little adjustable rubber bands pull your bra straps closer together and even add a little lift.
Problem: Walk of shame. Nothing is worse than coming to work wearing the same thing as the day before.
Solution: Convertible dresses. The concept has been around a while, but it keeps getting improved upon. Bridesmaids dresses five different ways, blazers that turn into full-sized coats, t-shirts that turn into dresses, dresses that turn into skirts. You pretty much need five items to wear a new outfit everyday.
Problem: Walking in heels. Does this one need any explanation?
Solution: Removable heels. A brand called Sheila's Wheels created a sky-high stiletto that turns into a flat at a moment's notice. And for those heels we love that don't have the same flexibility, let's give thanks to the Dr. Scholls foldable flats that fit in any purse for emergency foot issues.
