It takes someone with great fashion maturity to understand that it’s okay to repeat outfits, but it takes an even greater amount of courage to do so when you’re in the public eye. Kate Middleton, a serial outfit repeater, is one such person who has no qualms about being spotted and photographed on multiple occasions in her favorite high-street pieces from brands the likes of Zara, Reiss, Whistles, and L.K. Bennett. What was once considered a fashion taboo is slowly becoming more and more acceptable.
While it’s advisable to do so for obvious financial reasons, repeating outfits can also be a great exercise in shopping smart and becoming a better dresser. In the long run, you’ll start to only buy things you see yourself wearing multiple times, you’ll be trained to stick to what you already own, and you’ll learn to mix and match different pieces of clothing to make an entirely new outfit.
Here, Savoir Flair rounds up four of her best outfit repeats to inspire you.
Ah, royals. They’re just like us.
