I love rewearing clothes. I flatly refuse to buy an article if I'm only going to wear it once. I may not wear the same outfit twice a week but my favorite pieces get a fir amount of wear out of them, usually a couple of years until they're completely worn out!

this is absurd. i have WAY more respect for a woman who can use the pre-existing pieces in her wardrobe and re-use and combine them to look fabulous than someone who has to buy something new everyday in order to look fashionable. that's not what fashion is about. it's kind of pathetic, in my opinion. as far as i'm concerned fashion is about creativity, and that means tweaking old outfits.

YES - sure I repeat outfits. I am no celebrity or anything with their kind of dough. But not back to back. I mix up what I have a create new combos of looks. Work w. what I got and mix up where I find things. I am a lil' fashionista I suppose :)

Yes I repeat. I try not to really hard, but after reading the comments here I feel wayy better about repeating. I think because I got to my low point in fashion where I didn't care what I looked like, now I feel I have to make up for lost style time. lol. I really enjoy mixing and matching things around though. Which, I'm not sure if that counts as repeating? It's a couple of the same pieces.

All the time. So how many of the people that answered never say they care about the environment and being green and all that cool stuff...?

I can't bring myself to repeat an exact outfit! You have to at least change something about it...I mean if it's just a t-shirt and jeans then maybe I'd do it, but not like an outfit for clubbing or a going out.

since im not an uber-wealthy person i have too. but i think i would anyway. if i have an outfit i really love, why not wear it again? it seems wasteful.

the only time i dont repeat an outfit is for like special events. really special events... ones where i buy an outfit knowing i will never wear it again. and thats not often. otherwise, i look pretty much the same everyday...

off course, specially for work!! but what i do is that if a wore certain outfit i try to wear it again like on a month and half or something i always try to buy new tops so i dont care if i repat the jeans or skirts

Of course I do. If I really love an outfit that I put together, I definitely wear it again. I just space out the times that I wear it. I agree that only wearing something once is ridic.

Even if I had loads of money for a clothing budget, I'd still repeat things. The mentality that wearing something only once makes someone so stylish seems so silly and ridiculous to me.

Absofruitly! If it works, it works. I've gotta have go-to outfits for some things or else I'll spend to much time figuring things out. It's always fun to find great new combinations, though!

what everyone else said--who could afford not to repeat outfits? sure, the shoes, earrings, belt, whatever...that might change, but i could never treat clothing in a disposable manner.

even Queen Elizabeth repeats outfits nowadays even though it's specifically in the royal etiquette or something that she should never appear in the same outfit twice. if the Queen can do it so can anyone else

All you have to do is switch up pieces to create a new look. However, I have found myself repeating certain looks once a month, but its usually my go-to/comfy cute look!

I can go without repeating for months if I wear everything I own, but I repeat a lot because there are every pieces that I love such as the nice warm comfy cashmere sweaters and black J-brand skinny jeans with boots, and it seems to be the easiest and effortless outfit for me everyday.

yea i definitely repeat for the same reasons as most but i also try not to wear the same thing to work in the same week or two. just to switch it up. but when i go home every night and change into jeans and a shirt, i'll wear those a week straight til they are dirty!

@ geniegurl21 - totally agree with you! i can't afford to NOT repeat outfits, but i try to not wear the same outfit within the same week or 2.... or i'll try to switch it up with different shoes, purse, accessories at the very least. wouldn't it be nice if we had THAT many clothes to never repeat an outfit? only if....

of course i repeat, but i journal my outfits, so i know when i wore what and try to space things out as much as i can.

I actually do have a room full of clothes and shoes, and could probably go at least 6 months without wearing anything twice. At work, I'm known for never wearing the same thing twice, but people that really know me know that if I absolutely love an outfit, I'll wear it sometimes two days in a row. I don't care.

Honestly, unless you've got a ton of $, it's pretty much impossible not to repeat an outfit. Duh.
