Raise your hands if you also repeat clothes?! Well, I do. And since Macy Stucke, my fashion icon does it too, I love it too! First thing to note is that you can always repeat clothes without anyone taking notice. Secondly, repeating clothes is one easy way of keeping your wardrobe sustainable.
But before you go ahead and repeat clothes, there are a couple of tips you have to keep in mind:
8 Tips On How To Repeat Clothes Without Anyone Taking Notice
1. Learn to buy quality pieces.
Quality pieces are durable hence can be worn for a long time before actually changing your wardrobe.
However, people avoid buying these quality pieces just because of how costly they can be. But hey! Better a few quality pieces that will last for 10 years than a lot of cheap shoddy clothes can will only comfortably see you through three months.

2. Mind the washing instructions for every cloth.
Another way of keeping your clothes longer is by faithfully following the washing instructions.
If jeans should be washed inside out in order to keep the color, why are you not doing that? And if you should not use bleach on your clothes, please don’t! Other instructions by manufacturers include not ironing or ironing the clothes in low heat, steaming or even using the dryer or not for the cloth!
Do follow them to the latter!
3. Always store your clothes well.
If your clothes are clean, hang them properly in your wardrobe. Items that require folding or ironing should be properly folded or ironed.
Also, there are covers for clothes so that as you hang them in your closet, dust won’t settle on them resulting in stains.
Another tip I advise is to frequently check on the health of your clothes and closet in general. Dust off the shelves, wipe them clean, change the hangers and go for wooden hangers instead of metallic hangers which can produce rust and much more to just ensure your clothes always stay in good shape.
5. Invest in basics
No one should lack foundational wardrobe pieces! Talk about a pair of jeans or good pants, a nice tee and t-shirt, a good quality coat, dress and skirt! Even if you have no profound sense of style, you should not miss these basics.

Why? It is so easy to wear them over and over. Think of this…would you wear a cocktail dress from Monday to Monday? No! But a pair of jeans, yes! Now you know!
6. Invest in separates
By using the word ‘separates’, I mean outfits that can be mixed and match. We all love some good mixing and matching, right? That’s it!
7. Don’t miss just a few accessories
Not everyone is a fan of accessories but they do count! You don’t need to stuff your look with all manner of chains but you can just get a couple.
Talk about a scarf, good bag and shoes, some studs, a watch and sunglasses.
There is power in accessorizing and one good accessory placed on the right part on your body can instantly make your look different!

8. Don’t forget about your makeup.
There are different styles of makeup one can wear according to a makeup artist’s advice. This is because if one plays around with the eyes or lips especially, a different look can always come out.
Some of the common makeup looks include the no-makeup makeup look, a full face beat, nude makeup or a naked face too!
If you want to look different each time you have repeated clothes, consider switching up your makeup looks.
