It might seem like there's a cardinal rule in the fashion world that you simply don't wear the same outfit twice if you want to live another day humiliation-free. But this is largely a myth perpetuated by the powers that be that want you to always be buying new things and wearing new looks.
In reality, there are plenty of celebrities and style icons to re-wear the same outfit over and over again (hey, they're people too!). Case in point: international style maven Kate Middleton, who is actually known for recycling outfits. The trick: you can change up one look by adding different elements that rejuvenate and refresh it.
Don't believe us? Celebrity stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliott believe it, too, and they shared four ways you can wear the same outfit and make it feel new and different. Keep scrolling to find out what they are!
For example, you can make a button-up feel entirely different, for instance, by tucking it in, buttoning it up, popping the collar, or rolling the sleeves.
Public School Button Up Shirt with Recessed Shoulder ($382)
Colored tights, a bright lip, or a shiny little handbag adds an instant refresh.
A waist belt can change the proportion entirely of a voluminous top or dress. Alternate between a statement necklace, a statement earring, or a wristful of chunky bracelets.
Sophie Hulme Leather and Gold-Plated Chain Belt ($360)
Ryan Storer Rose Gold Plated Swarovski Pearl Earring ($195)
Eddie Borgo Lariat Rose Gold Plated Necklace ($225)
To make an outfit look very different, choose one or the other: Think a pump and an ultra-feminine clutch or a pair of oxfords and a menswear-inspired wristwatch.
