Okay, so maybe your morning afters aren’t the same as the typical college “stumbling from a frat house or dorm to your own place” while managing to pass at least 2 friends and a professor on the way. But, even people in relationships often find themselves struggling to fix their morning-after appearance as they head back home or go with their guy to grab bagels and iced coffees. Rather than tossing yourself into his shower that might not have your favorite flowery products, use some of these tricks to take the walk of shame in the most stylish and classy way possible!
Big Purse: While a clutch might be more convenient and stylish for your night out, it won’t be able to properly fit all of your walk of shame essentials. Find a bag that’s big enough with secret compartments. You’ll be ready for an “unexpected” all-nighter without having to stop at the drug store on your way back!
Makeup Remover: Let’s face it, his bar soap just won’t do to get rid of your raccoon eyes, and smudged makeup is a huge no-no if you’re trying not to look like a train wreck on your walk home. Bring along some make up remover pads and you can freshen up your face right before you head out the door!
Sunglasses: The best way to hide your tired eyes (and half of your face if necessary) is by throwing on a pair of sunglasses that are large and in charge. Make sure that they’re cheap! The worst would be to leave your favorite pair at someone’s place that you were hoping to never have to walk back from again. Find a decent and cheap pair of hater-blockers to ward off the dirty looks and most importantly, remain anonymous.
Hair Tie: When you wake up and your hair manages to be going in every direction but you still feel like you can’t move, make sure you have a hair accessory to tame it down. Whether it’s a headband, hair clip, or hair tie that helps you manage, if your hair looks like a mess it’s pretty obvious that your night took some unexpected turns and tangles.
Breath Mints: Whether it’s alcohol or the late night munchies that you regret eating, morning breath is a dead give-away of a messy night. Throw some breath mints into your handy overnight bag and leave his apartment with the confidence to talk to whoever you see on the street. Want to be extra prepared? Toss a mini toothbrush into your bag and do a quick bathroom clean up before you head out- it’ll almost be like you’re ready for the real day!
Comfy Shoes: Even if you do manage to grab a t-shirt and shorts from him to wear on your walk instead of the wrinkled mini dress from last night, the combination of boys’ clothes with stilettos is a clear give-away. Toss a pair of flats into your bag and make your walk more comfortable and way less obvious.
Scarf: Your 9:00 pm attire of a cleavage hugging tank might not be the best for your 9:00 am walk home. What you wanted to flaunt the night before might be just what you need to hide in the morning. Throw some sort of scarf or cover up into your bag to keep your outfit up with the time of day.
So what do you say ladies? Will these tips help you on your next walk of shame? Do you have anymore suggestions? Are you in a more serious relationship and you can just leave these things at his place?
