While it sounds slightly counterintuitive, Meghan Markle is known for buying her heels one size above her true size. The extra space this creates prevents blisters and discomfort. Fashion expert Harriet Davey told The Sun, “celebs often go a size up, or even two, in the shoe department when they’re at an event or on the red carpet.” Although we do not have any red carpet events coming up, we will definitely keep this anti-blister trick in mind.

2. Clutches Have Many Purposes

In order to avoid a fashion emergency, Princess Diana would always use her clutch to shield her chest when getting out of cars. Anya Hindmarch told The Telegraph “We used to laugh when we designed what she called her ‘cleavage bags.'” Clutches are very popular within the royal family. Kate Middleton uses her clutch in order to avoid shaking hands while on a visit. We will never look at clutches the same way.

3. Dresses Won’t Fly Up With Weights

Even the royal family has had close encounters with a “Marilyn moment.” For instance, Kate Middleton has had her dress fly up on multiple occasions. In order to avoid this unideal slip-up, the women will sometimes use clothing weights to hold their dresses and skirts down. This enables them to maintain a modest appearance, even in the windiest of places.

4. Gloves Act As Protection

The Queen uses her handbag for a genius purpose. Despite being helpful for holding belongings, the handbag can be used for communication. Queen Elizabeth uses her handbag to signal her staff. For instance, the Queen puts her handbag on top of the table if she wants to leave a dinner. This helpful trick will be a game changer at the next dinner party we attend.

10. Bodysuits Keep Things Classy
