My Fashion Week Purse Essential (You’ll Never Guess)

It’s Fashion Week, and stylistas are running around like crazy to view the designers’ newest, chic-est collections. There are myriad guides on must-haves for surviving the madness, but there’s one essential I rarely see mentioned that I never leave home without.

It’s chewing gum!

  • Fashion Week requires fresh breath. When meeting Karlie Kloss, you’d better floss. (I couldn’t resist.) You don’t want a “excuse me, Ms. Wintour” moment with nasty-smelling breath — trust me. Fresh breath will give you the confidence to approach models and designers alike with ease.
  • Gum helps control hunger. It’s hard to get a second to eat sometimes when you’re running from show to show, so you’ll need something to hold back the beast. Choose a sugarfree gum like Trident (the first national sugar-free gum in the US and the leading sugar-free gum brand) – you don’t want to be mindlessly munching sugar all day when you’re really hungry for actual nutrition! Empty calories = so not Chanel.
  • It’s actually good for your teeth. Really! Chewing Trident for 20 minutes after eating and drinking helps to clean and protect teeth. Plus, whether you’re in the mood for a refreshing mint flavor like Spearmint or a fruity flavor like Tropical Twist, Trident helps fight cavities. In fact, 4 out of 5 dentists surveyed would recommend Trident to their patients. Good teeth are a fashion must – and bad ones can ruin even the cutest of outfits.
    • Of course, you can’t just chew gum to take care of your mouth.  Brush teeth twice a day, for at least two minutes each time, floss daily, and visit a dentist regularly (every 6 months). Just don’t schedule your appointment for Fashion Week.
  • Give while you chew. Trident is charitable and has supported Oral Health America’s non-profit program Smiles Across America for the past 11 years, donating more than $2,500,000 & helping more than two million underserved children get preventative dental care. During the week of 9/20, every pack of Trident gum purchased will spur a $0.05 donation to Smiles Across America, up to $250,000. (Void in AL, MA and SC. )
  • A quick fashion fix. It may sound gross, but when you’re trapped out on the show circuit and a belt breaks, sometimes a slightly chewed piece of gum is the ultimate fashion fix. No kidding – it’s saved more than one look for me!
