9 style hack tools every woman needs in her purse

Styling hack tool: Statement sunglasses

A pair of slick shades can conceal any number of fashion or beauty sins. Flushed from your eyebrow wax? Throw on some sunnies! Outfit too #basic? OTT frames add glam factor to even jeans and a tee. It's pretty much impossible not to look cool in shades. Illesteva 'Leonard II' sunglasses ($330 USD), at shopsuperstreet.com. READ MORE: Exactly how to wear culottes this season

Josie Maran 'Bear Naked' wipes ($12 USD), at josiemarancosmetics.com. READ MORE: How to rock the edgiest celeb-inspired trend
