Hack the trend by repeating outfits like celebs


Every woman has experienced the dreaded "nothing to wear" crisis at least once in her life. And the celebrities whom we look up to are not an exception. No matter how much we dread wearing the same outfit twice or even posting pictures on Instagram in the same dress more than once, we all have those gut-wrenching moments when, after staring blankly at our wardrobe for hours, we end up choosing an outfit that we have, well, worn multiple times. 

We took a look at the celebrities that have recycled outfits and fashion in the past, making it hip and acceptable to do so at a time when the fashion industry is moving toward a more environmentally friendly and sustainable future.

Ricky Kej

Cannes Film Festival was the second time this year that the two-time Grammy winner Ricky Kej had worn the same ensemble on the red carpet. He wore a navy blue bandhgala with gold buttons and an embroidered collar for the occasion. With it, he donned a white kurta and gray skinny jeans.

With such, he advised everyone to re-wear their clothing because the Earth would remember not what you wore, but how you treat it.


Sonali Bendre

Sonali Bendre has started posting pictures of herself in old ensembles recently. She donned a Rohit Bal jacket she wore at least two decades ago on an episode of a dancing reality program. When she shared images of herself in the white suit that she had worn during her first trimester on Instagram last month, she made headlines once again.

She wore an ivory kurta with a chikankari design all over its flair that looked stunning! It was paired with a pair of skinny slacks in the same color as the blouse and an embellished dupatta in the same fabric. The sleeves and hem of the kurta were adorned with silver shimmer. Sonali's dress was completed with an ivory sling and heels.

Salwar Suits

Tiffany Haddish

At this point, Tiffany Haddish has made public appearances in her Alexander McQueen white dress over four times, each time for a different occasion. Despite people's warnings, she intends to wear the outfit again in public, recycling it numerous times.


Sara Ali Khan

Her unique way of styling the same dress more than once is noteworthy. We all have had a dupatta or a Kurta in our wardrobe that we love to mix & match with other garments from our wardrobe, guess Sara did the same.

Recently, repeating a versatile Chanderi kurta here with 2 different stylings. The all-over-white gives her an elegant yet festive look while the contrast dupatta adds on a vibrant touch to the look. You too, stop thinking too much & just pair your kurta with a new dupatta this time.



Deepika Padukone

We're swooning over all of her appearances, both on and off the red carpet, thanks to her stunning wardrobe. But if there's one thing that you probably missed in all the flash and glam, it's the fact that Deepika truly enjoys wearing the same dresses over and over again.

In 2012, Deepika donned this Dolce & Gabbana black and gold gown at a Mumbai Beauty Awards ceremony. She wore the same dress at the Vanity Fair Oscars party in 2017. Nailing both events with glamour!


Previously, it was considered a fashion blunder to wear the same clothing more than once, but that is no longer the case. Even the most knowledgeable fashionistas think that clothes should be worn several times and recycled. It is alright to appreciate those simple pairs of jeans that have been a mainstay in your wardrobe for some time; nevertheless, you should keep in mind that you should style them with a creative spin this time around. You don't need an army of stylists and designers to pull off this look, but these A-listers will teach you how to do it well the second time.
