If it fits great and its a basic then yea-- If I find an amazing fitting pair of trousers I always get them in multiples. But I wouldn't if it was something that is a signature or unique piece.

I do this very rarely but in the last year I've done it twice. First it was because I tried on a kimono dress from Dorothy Perkins in black and electric blue and it was so flattering I bought the gray and apple green version as well. This week I've done it again because I got some black high-waisted trousers from George at ASDA and they fit so well I got a gray pair as well. I think those are the only two times I have ever done that though.

yes it was a plain singlet tops so it hardly counts i think it doesnt matter if you wear it differently and you can dress it up/down

Ok so not always but if I find something that I like that fits really great I do buy more than one color. Finding clothes that really fit well is such a problem for me lately, so I have to get more than one.

I buy Shade Cap Sleeve Under Tees in different colors. I currently have them in teal, hot pink, black, and white. I want to get about 3 to 4 more so I can have a different color for every day of the week! :) Ailene

If I love it, I will buy it in every color and sometimes more than one in the same color, especially if it is a staple. I have gone through many a white or black button down from spills, rips, or just flat out wearing it out and I'm so glad to have another new shirt that I love right behind it.

i do, especially when there's a sale (like 2 for 1 or something). plus, when they're layering tanks or shirts, it really comes in handy!

basic things shouldn't count. like t-shirts and tank tops. however, i bought a gorgeous grecian dress in two colors because i loved the way the both looked on me

Once in a while. I just did as a matter of fact. A pair of Calvin Klein wedges I bought earlier this summer in red patent went on sale and I bought a pair of black patent.

if it's a staple in my wardrobe, definitely. i live in polos at work, so i got multiple colors of the same ones from old navy, and different colored pairs of chucks, and stuff . . .
