Who wore it better? You decide.
Kate's Fashion Repeat
Plus, other celebs obsessed with white pantsuits.
They may have the hottest designers clamoring to dress them, free clothes arriving at their doorsteps daily, and ample clothing budgets to buy all the designer duds they aren’t gifted — but that doesn’t mean they won’t be caught dead wearing the same thing twice.

Quite the contrary. Rather than a fashion faux pas, fashion repeats — a dress/bag/sweater/pair of boots/insert any clothing item (notice we said item, not outfits) worn on more than one occasion — is what helps to distinguish the stars with real style from the rest of Hollywood’s well-styled celebs.

Sure, they’re incorporating new pieces into their wardrobes all the time, but these women also know how to mix and match what’s already in their closet to create fresh looks.

Rather than being slaves to each season’s trends, true style stars Alexa Chung, Kate Middleton, Miranda Kerr, Kim Kardashian and Jessica Biel adapt the latest looks to fit their personal style by pairing them with the staples already in their closet. Their genius styling tricks, which allow these trendsetters to repeat pieces in non-obvious ways, is why we love stalking their style.

A dress as a blouse? Why not? Navy and black? How chic! Peplums and midi skirts? It can work! Leather skinnies with … everything? Instant edge.

Since most of us don’t have the luxury of not repeating the same pieces over and over again, creative mixing and matching is the key to avoiding stale style.
