We've seen countless of celebrities have wardrobe malfunctions. Who could forget Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl or Katy Perry's forever slipping dress strap that threatened to expose her breasts?

While the chances of those things happening to you are slim, non-celebrities do suffer from their own wardrobe malfunctions. Whether you spill something on your shirt at work or break a heel while grabbing a coffee, there are some quick fixes that can hold you through the day.

The experts at Little PINK Book offer six surefire ways to avoid embarrassment.

  • Dry-Erase Board Cleaner

    Need to erase a stain before a big meeting? Ask around for a coworker with stain-removing pen. Alternatively, dry-erase board cleaner works just as well -- but test a small area on your clothing first if your clothing isn't white.

  • Graphite Pencil

    If a zipper is stuck, rub the tip of a graphite pencil over the area to loosen it up.

  • Stapler

    Grab a stapler to fix broken zippers or loose sleeves -- just staple your garment from the inside out.

  • Packing Tape

    If a button-down shirt or wrap dress is gaping more than anticipated, a loop of strong packing tape to hold the fabric together should do the trick.

  • Dark Marker

    For scuffed shoes or holes in a pair of tights, a dark marker will provide a temporary fix.

  • Duct Tape

    Trickier problems, like a broken heel, may require more creativity, but you're not out of options. Duct tape works wonders for holding a shoe together -- and a marker can help blend the tape in.
