Would you wear the same outfit two days in a row?
I remember in high school writing down everything I wore everyday in my agenda. I’d flip back and see that I wore my Abercrombie & Fitch volleyball sweatshirt three Thursday’s ago and know I’d have to wait another three Thursdays before it was safe to wear it again. I didn’t know who I thought I was keeping tracking of my outfits because it definitely wasn’t anyone on the hockey team I was trying to impress.
My obsessive wardrobe tracking didn’t survive my college years and really wouldn’t make it now that I’ve started to figure out my personal style and form somewhat of a uniform (Altfits on Altfits on Altfits), but I’ve never worn the same exact outfit two days in a row, especially around the same group of people (shoutout to the Studio!). And then last week…
I walked into the studio and Garance said to me, “You look cute today, do you have a date tonight?”
I laughed, flipped my hair, smiled and replied, “No…but I do have one tomorrow.”
“Oh, well you should wear this outfit again!”
“What? This? Again? The same thing? All of it? But you’ve all seen me in this?”
“Yeah do it. We won’t tell anyone!”
Confession: I did it.
And you know what, it wasn’t the end of the fashion world. No one at my subway platform noticed, the girl at the coffee shop didn’t seem to care and my date certainly had no idea.
What’s your policy when it comes to repeating outfits? Are you a tracker? Or do you not care at all? Am I crazy?
