Wear More Stuff
The easiest option to facilitate a ‘quick change’ is to remove layers of clothing, but in order to do so, you must first wear more.
You can easily put on extra top clothing such as shirts or hoodies. Then when you need to shake someone following you, turn a corner into a crowd and quickly take it off.
Wearing sunglasses and a cap is another great idea since these things hide your face and are also very easy to remove and discard.
When people look at other people from a distance, they recognize silhouettes and colors.
When you are adding your additional layers, it is a good idea to put on contrasting colors, e.g., from black to white or red to green.
That way, when you take a layer off, it is completely different.
Dumping the Evidence
Once you take something off, you need to get rid of it.
The easiest way is to dump them in a trash can as you walk by.
You could also stuff it in a bag and then wear your bag in front so from behind it looks like you don’t have one.
