Fashion stylist reveals how popular velvet hangers are RUINING your clothing – particularly if you’re petite

A professional fashion stylist has revealed why you need to ditch the velvet hangers in your closet immediately – especially if you’re petite.

The tip was shared by Los Angeles-based stylist Becca Kahane in a video posted to TikTok this week.

Kahane, who also works as a personal shopper, often takes to her social media accounts to share her wardrobe styling tips and tricks, as well as trend predictions.

In a new clip, Kahane explained her reasoning for urging people to avoid velvet hangers, explaining that she had originally learned the tip from a professional wardrobe archiver.

‘Do not use these types of hangers, especially if you are a petite woman under a size six,’ Kahane began.

‘You do not want to use these for tops, dresses, sweaters, jackets,’ she continued.

The stylist revealed that when you hang your clothes on velvet hangers, it will stretch out the shoulders of the garments, explaining that the size of the closet accessories combined with the fact that they cling to the fabric of your clothing can lead to disaster. 

She also demonstrated why this occurs, revealing that the hanger’s width is typically much bigger than the width of her own shoulders.

‘So, if you put a top on it, it will stretch out the top and the shoulder area, so your sleeve won’t fall properly where it’s supposed to, and it will create a little dip,’ she said.

‘You don’t want that, it will ruin your shirts.’

The solution?

Instead of buying velvet hangers, Kahane recommended buying kids’ size hangers.

Ashley Full, cofounder and stylist at AMOUR781, said lug-sole loafers will remain popular, especially in the spring. The style refers to chunky, rubber soles. 

“The lug-sole loafers that were a favorite of ‘It Girls’ this fall will also continue to be a trend in spring,” she told Insider. “Your chunky loafer will be the perfect complement to the preppy tennis miniskirts that everyone added to their wardrobe in 2022.”

The stylist also recommended adding a collegiate-inspired cardigan to complete the look. 

Shades of green are on the rise.

“We’ll see fern and moss green this spring into pre-fall,” she said. “This color might present a challenge for some, but you can embrace it through patterns or accessories.”
