We shouldn’t be ashamed of wearing one outfit multiple times. However, it is far more important to ask whether you should really care if someone is watching? As fashion shifts towards ‘Sustainability’ and ‘quality over quantity’, repeating your clothes isn’t a problem anymore. Just trust me. The new cool is repetition.
Check out these 6 ways to repeat your clothes.
- Dress as you like
The fact that you buy a piece simply because it fascinates you seems absurd if you are going to wear it only once. Even if you repeat your clothes, you will still look chic and stand out regardless because every time you wear that amazing outfit, the joy of wearing it justice will make you happier.
- Restyle your clothing
Try to restyle your clothes to make them look unique if you get self-conscious about wearing the same clothes over and over (which you shouldn’t). Consider adding a nice jacket, belt, and clutch to the dress if you don’t plan to wear the same dress again. These add a whole different look to the dress. It’s important to be flexible and sustainable with fashion . Create new outfits with old outfits by maximising your potential and creativity.
- Avoid overdressing for social media
It doesn’t mean that you will never wear any particular outfit again just because you shared it on social media. Social media can be manipulated. Make sure your outfit pictures are spaced out, photographed from different angles, or styled differently.
- Quality is essential
The item you admire will be worn more than once if you buy it if it is something you admire. You can only wear a shirt so many times, so purchasing a substandard quality is more like wasting money.
5. Dress happy
Keep wearing an outfit if you like it, if it makes you look stylish, and if it is comfortable for you. It is common sense that you cannot buy a new dress every day.
- Ensure repeating outfits
For a larger cause, repeating your outfits is necessary. The more you repeat yourself, the less likely people are to feel pressured to shop regularly and waste their money. It makes society unsustainable because people feel judged for spending money. Throwaway or disposable fashion is not sustainable, so it is not realistic to encourage that. It is therefore important to repeat your clothes, especially if you wish to save your money and ensure your safety. Covid has instructed us well.
My hope is that repeating clothes will be considered stylish and cool. We need to do our part to normalise repeating dresses and change mindsets.
