Art Of Repeating Clothes
It is almost inevitable not to repeat your clothes twice, unless you are a shopaholic.
If you are a shopaholic and have enough money to buy new clothes every week, (please come and dash me money. Thank you very much), you are lucky because that totally reduces the chances of repeating clothes.
But if you are not a shopaholic and don't have enough money to buy new clothes every week, relax. Don't stress yourself. What matters most is the way you carry yourself!
I believe you will find these tips helpful:
Be CreativeAbove all tips, NEVER wear the same outfit twice. When I say outfit, I mean the same combination from head to toe. Try to create a different look and vibe. Style it up. Change the top you wore it with or the shoes you wore the previous time. Change the way you wore your hair (and makeup, if you do). Your creativity makes the diffference.

AccessorizeThere are going to be days you wouldn't feel like it and you want to simply pull on whatever you can grab (which will most likely be something you recently wore, obviously). For days like that, opt for a scarf, jacket, necklace, belt and any other clothing item to throw on your ‘repeated’ clothes. Trust me, most people will not even notice!

Invest in separatesInvesting in separates such as skirts and tops is easier to mix and match than when you invest in single outfits such as dresses. For instance, instead of buying a dress, buy about three tops or two skirts. So that you can have options. And yes, having a little black/red/yellow dress is a neccesity. You can style it in hundred ways!

RecycleWhen you feel you've had enough of a dress, turn into a skirt or top. Believe me, nobody will notice!

Have funThe most important thing is to have fun with your outfits. What's the point of "creative lifestyle" if we can't be creative with our clothes? I personally love to play and experiment with my clothes.

The act of repeating your clothes is an art. Just imagine what you want to look like, and create it. Nobody will kill you for wearing the same thing twice. Besides, is it their body? Lol!
