Kate Middleton Is Proof That You Can Wear Your Favourite Pieces Again & Again!


Do you have that one picture which you look gorgeous in, that is lying fallow on your phone because just when you were about to post it on Instagram, you realized you already posted one in the same outfit before?

Trust me, I know the feeling. Social media has become a convenient canvass with which we paint a picture of a perfect life to the world(see me forming depth low-key sha) , it is very easy to find yourself in this situation, because you know, we don’t want people to assume we have few clothes or repeat clothes. But what if? Is it not your cloth?

Personally, even though there are clothes in my wardrobe that I very rarely wear, there are others which I wear veryyy often(I call them my Christmas clothes), because clothes are meant to be worn. That’s how you know I like a particular piece sef. If I wear it too many times, then I love it. Just make the mistake of telling me an outfit looks good on me, and watch me wear it till it gets faded or torn (in which case, I’m even getting inspired by Yeezy’s clothing line these days).

I have very often imagined how it is for celebrities (like what happens to all those pretty clothes we often see them albeit once), which is why I was excited when, while checking out pictures from 2016’s Royal Ascot, I realized that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton wore a Dolce and Gabbana dress which she had previously rocked! I did more research and found out that it was not the first time; infact, she quite often, repeats an outfit she has worn before!

Your hippocampus (the brain’s memory control centre) is probably coming alive with gist of Brits being akagum (tight-fisted) right now, that’s ok. At least, the oversabi British media will not say she spent their money on clothes.

I like the Duchess very much, her charisma, her style and now the fact that she is unafraid to re-rock her clothes (expensive or not) regardless of whether she is a public figure. So I have compiled some pictures of times she repeated outfits, sometimes, styled differently.

Take a look:
