Last week’s Grommet Gallery of hacks contained six classic Grommets. They were the bestsellers, solving a range of problems from being able to use your Mason jars for coffee on the go to removing lint and pills from your cardigans.

This week’s hacks, or creative solutions and products that solve a problem, focus on fashion. Accessories have long been staples of a good outfit. An outfit wasn’t complete without the right pair of earrings, shoes, purse, or even gloves.

Be ready to be wowed by these six fashionable fashionable Grommets. They’ll pull your outfit together and more.



THINX ($32, Hiphugger) -- Others may not see this fashionable hack (unless they’re lucky), but you’ll feel beautiful and protected in a pair of these performance underwear. They’re leak and stain resistant for days when you need a bit of extra protection.

Lumi Inkodye ($29.95) -- Bring your digital photos to light and life by printing them onto fabric using the power of sunshine. This modernized dye formula from the 1950s will add an artistic edge to your outfit.

Hem Gems ($19.95) -- It’s hard for the same pair of pants to do double duty for heels and flats since the pant legs can fray. These pins mimic hardware on jeans and let you tuck the pant legs in place to still show the original hem. Now, you only have to pack two pair of shoes, not jeans.

Mighty Purse ($99.95) -- This genuine leather clutch combines the best of both worlds: a cute clutch and a backup battery for your all-time accessory, your smartphone. You’ll have all your essentials with you and won’t run out of juice while on the dancefloor.

La LOOP ($25) -- We all lead busy lives, and it’s okay to forget where you leave your eyeglasses sometimes. Be good to the neck of your blouse and use this fun eyeglass holder to keep your pair securely against you.


HICKIES ($14.95) -- If you want to add some color to your kicks, lose the dirty laces and equip your shoes with this elastic lacing system. They’re adjustable for any shoe size and come in a variety of colors to match your outfit.
