Our exclusive brand, located in Miami, offers stylish sneakers, hats, and shapewear with worldwide shipping, ensuring you always have access to chic fashion essentials. But great style is only part of the equation; maintaining a polished appearance is equally important. Here are some budget-friendly grooming hacks to keep you looking fabulous every day.

Maintain Your Sneakers

A fresh pair of sneakers can elevate any outfit, but keeping them clean is essential. Use these simple hacks to maintain your Swag+Chic sneakers:

  • Spot Cleaning: Mix a small amount of dish soap with water and use an old toothbrush to gently scrub away dirt and stains.
  • Deodorize: Sprinkle baking soda inside your sneakers and leave them overnight. Shake out the excess in the morning to keep them smelling fresh.
  • Protective Sprays: Invest in a protective spray to shield your sneakers from stains and water damage. It’s a small expense that can extend the life of your footwear.

Hat Care Tips

Hats are a great way to add personality to your look, but they require care to maintain their shape and appearance:

  • Brush Regularly: Use a soft brush to remove dust and dirt from your hats, especially felt hats like the "MAEVIAN Trilby Hat"
  • Steam Cleaning: Hold your hat over a pot of boiling water for a few seconds to remove wrinkles and freshen it up.
  • Storage: Store your hats in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent fading and deformation.

Shapewear Maintenance

Shapewear can be a game-changer for your silhouette. Keep it in top condition with these tips:

  • Hand Wash: To maintain the elasticity and shape of your Butt Lifter + Waist/Thigh Slimming Shapewear, hand wash it in cold water with a gentle detergent.
  • Air Dry: Always air dry your shapewear flat to prevent stretching and damage from high heat.
  • Rotate Usage: Have a few pieces of shapewear in rotation to avoid over-wearing and extending their lifespan.

DIY Skincare

Healthy skin is the foundation of a polished look. Here are some budget-friendly skincare hacks:

  • Exfoliate with Sugar Scrubs: Mix sugar with olive oil to create a simple yet effective exfoliating scrub.
  • Hydrate with Aloe Vera: Aloe vera gel is an excellent moisturizer and can help soothe irritated skin. Apply it directly from the plant or use store-bought gel.
  • Face Masks: Create a hydrating face mask using honey and yogurt. Apply the mixture to your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, and rinse off for glowing skin.

Hair Care on a Budget

Keep your hair looking its best without splurging on expensive products:

  • Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse: Mix apple cider vinegar with water and use it as a final rinse after shampooing to add shine and remove buildup.
  • Dry Shampoo: If you’re in a pinch, use cornstarch as a DIY dry shampoo to absorb excess oil and freshen up your hair.
  • Regular Trims: Regularly trimming your hair can prevent split ends and keep your hair looking healthy and neat. You can even learn to do minor trims at home with the right tools and techniques.

Nail Care

Neat nails are a small detail that makes a big difference:

  • Cuticle Oil: Keep your cuticles healthy by applying a small amount of olive oil or coconut oil regularly.
  • DIY Manicure: Save money by doing your own manicures at home. Invest in a basic nail care kit and take the time to shape, buff, and paint your nails.
