We've all been there — you're rocking a new sweater on a crisp fall day and it gets snagged. You think there's no way to fix it — on your own, at least — and everything you try actually makes it worse. You get frustrated and eventually just accept the fact that it may never look the same again. 

Not so fast, Marie Claire's Fashion Editor-at-Large, Zanna Roberts Rassi, says. All you need is a bobby pin to rescue it.

Here's what you do: 

  1. Loop the snagged piece of thread through the bobby pin. 
  2. Thread the bobby pin back through the hole in the sweater.
  3. Pull. 

That's literally it — and it takes seconds. See what we mean in the video above!
