These celebrities show you how to repeat outfits in style
Everyone has been stuck in a sartorial rut at some point in their life. (let’s just say everyday). We believe we have found a solution to your “I have nothing to wear” dilemma. Although this was considered a fashion error at the time (for no good reason), modern rules have changed. Even the most fashion savvy believe in repeating and recycling clothes. On behalf of all modern-day fashionistas, I’d like to offer you a little style advice. Nice to kiss those humble jeans that have been a wardrobe staple for a while, don’t forget to style them with a smart twist this time around. Even with an armor of stylists and designers to their aid, let these A-listers show you how to rock an ensemble for the 2nd (or 3rd / 4th / 5th) the weather. Watch and learn!
1. Deepika Padukone
Each of her looks is remarkable and her magnificent clothing portfolio makes us admire all her appearances, on and off the catwalks. But if there’s one thing you probably haven’t noticed among all the glitz and glamor, it’s that Deepika loves to repeat outfits. Deepika wore this stunning Dolce & Gabbana piece to a Beauty Awards party in Mumbai in 2012. In 2017, she was spotted wearing the same outfit at the Vanity Fair Oscars party. All we can say is that she was successful both times.
Pro tip: The trick is to get the same preview over a fairly spread out timeline. It also helps if you are having the parties in two totally different geographic locations.
2. Jennifer Lopez
Don’t we love a good dress rehearsal? Especially when J.Lo says so. Jennifer Lopez almost broke the internet the two times she wore this iconic Versace green dress. She won this outfit at the Grammy Awards in 2000. The second time around, she made an appearance at the Versace show in 2020, in an updated take on the dress. Because a single appearance in this legendary dress would be a shame.
3. Janhvi Kapoor
Do you wear a different outfit to work out every day? It seems a bit of a stretch, even for the Kapoors. Even if you’re not glued to your Instagram, at one point Janhvi Kapoor in her gym gear, coming out of her Pilates session, in her trendy workout outfit, made it into your feed. There’s no denying her dedication to her workout routine, but there’s another thing she loves to do: it’s repeat an outfit or two – however, she always pairs them up differently and comes up with a fresh new look.
4. Tara Sutaria
Tara Sutaria may be new to the world of Bollywood, but she’s no stranger to making a stylish statement. Due to her immaculate personal style, this diva is always stylish and elegant. The star has been spotted staying true to her faded lightly washed jeans on several occasions, combining them with exactly the perfect top whether she’s going for an extra laid back vibe or wanting to be all dolled up. If Tara Sutaria is ready to repeat outfits, do we need more pressure?
5. Kate Middleton
We were surprised to learn that the Duchess of Cambridge is more accessible than expected. Kate Middleton certainly loves wearing her favorite outfits and isn’t afraid to repeat them, but with a twist next time. Being a huge fan of recycling her outfits, it was hard to choose just one, but the Duchess looked amazing both times she wore this gold and white Alexander McQueen dress. The dress debuted in 2012 at a state dinner in Malaysia, and was reintroduced in 2020 at the BAFTA event with a little twist in hair and accessories.
