Is it OK to Repeat Outfits? Yes, says Dr. Jill Biden (and Real Life Style)

Yes, it is ok to repeat outfits. On social media. On the world stage. At the playground. At school pick up. In the boardroom. At your Tuesday meeting.

For years we have been asked (and asked) what we think about clothing rental services. They have their place when you’re in between sizes. In that way, they can be part of a sustainable fashion strategy. However, curating a wardrobe filled with pieces you love and can depend on is the Real Life Style way.

It also seems to be the way of our fashionable First Lady, Dr. Jill Biden! If our First Lady can repeat outfits at a global level, it is ok for you to repeat outfits. Please enjoy the First Lady fashion-on-repeat show!

Yes, it is ok to repeat outfits, but that doesn’t mean you can’t change up your accessories! Dr. Jill Biden switches out her masks and bracelets to wear this Narciso Rodriguez look at both the Tokyo Olympics and in Florida with Dr. Fauci.

Dr. Biden in Brandon Maxwell

Dr. Biden created multiple looks with Brandon Maxwell’s Audrey Dot sheath dress. Endless strands of pearls and a coordinating black mask are chic additions. The pearls elongate her body line and allow the dress to shine. Throwing Zadig & Voltaire’s Love jacket over the dress at the G7 gives the dress some attitude and creates an entirely new look.

Do you think it’s ok to repeat outfits on social media and in real life? A client put this question to us last month. Wearing the same outfit to the same type of work event just one month apart is a no. Repeating the looks from the black tie work events in her social life is a yes.
