Dress your way out of a hangover
You don’t have to look that shit
It’s now 10am and if you were cut open right now only vodka would come out. But life doesn’t stop for your hangover, so suck it up and fool everyone instead.
A classic. Some say too obvious, but better people think you misjudged the weather than see the eyes behind them.
Wash off those stamps
Nothing says I’d rather be lying in a dark room more than an X on the back of your hand.
Style out yesterday’s clothes if you have to
You don’t get the same looks walking along in a beer soaked shirt or in heels with a clutch bag at 11am that you do at 11pm. Walk with your head held high like maybe you chose this outfit today.
Spray on any fragrance you can. The thought of perfume/aftershave having alcohol in may make you want to cry tears of pure spirits but you need it. Anything that covers the scent of tequila will do.
The 2 minute makeover
Just do your brows. Anyone with passable eyebrows looks like they have their life together. Also, wear bright lipstick (everyone will look at it and not your eyes). Also recommended for boys.
Sit next to someone who looks more hungover
Great for lectures. Find the person who looks like they made the most mistakes in the past 12 hours and sit next to them, they are now your new best friend. Same idea as the lipstick.
The hangover shirt
Everyone needs one – make it oversized and soft. But don’t wear the same one every time, or people start to catch on.
Get the drinks in
No, not hair of the dog. Ditch the coffee, get a bottle of water and drop a Vitamin C tablet in it. People may think it’s wine, don’t correct them, they won’t believe you anyway.
Put your headphones in, but no music
Your head is pounding its own bassline, you don’t need music. However, it screams “don’t talk to me” and the noises around you get quieter. Win-win.
And, if all else fails, just physically hide.
