She's a practical princess. Kate Middleton (technically Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge) wore the same pink pleated dress twice in 11 days, repeating the $2,000 Emilia Wickstead frock at a luncheon at Windsor Castle on May 18 and a tea party at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday. "I've worn it before, as you all probably know," Kate Middleton told reporters on Tuesday.

The Duchess is winning over fashionistas and ordinary folks alike with her pretty yet practical style. Last July, she wore a green Diane von Furstenberg "Maja" dress to the British Consul-General's residence in Los Angeles, The New York Daily News reports. She repeated the same dress at Zara Phillips' pre-wedding party two weeks later. How often do you repeat outfits?

    At least she is getting some wear out of the dress. Most royals wear an outfit once and never again, after paying large amounts of money for them. That is a flagrant waste of money in my opinion.

    I don't wear shirts two days in a row, but I might wash it, and wear it again within 3 days. But jeans? If they don't look terribly dirty, I'll wear them again. In fact, you're really not supposed to wash jeans a heckuva lot. Breaks down the fibers quicker.

    i have alot of clothes and it just would not be fair to them all to repeat more often then this (actually other then jeans, i only ever repeat after washing).

    It's wasteful for royalty to wear outfits once and never again, so I'm happy to see Kate being a practical princess

    So you don't wear sets of clothes? I'm guessing you walk around wearing just a shirt and nothing else because that would be considered an outfit.

    No, I don't wear anything "made for each other", like a suit. Oh, by the way. you don't get to decide what is considered an outfit, hell, you don't get to decide anything on my behalf.

    It's surprising how that makes you less of a man to wear outfits.

    You kinda said it when you said you don't wear outfits becuase you are a man. I mean, its just a combination of clothes to me. Google says its a combination for a special occasion. My statement still stands....

    To me an outfit is something made to go together,like a suit or a specific set of clothes that were made to go together,

    A good jacket or skirt stretches your wardrobe. Just change the accessories.

    Not uh, everything LOL, but jeans and bras I usually wear two or three days in a row. It's not like I'm rolling in mud or peeing myself every day.

    I don't require a lot of clothing changes since i've retired. Slacks and blouses are my usual, and they have to be wash and wear. I admire Kate and wish she would dress in styles a bit closer to her own age.

    She dresses as if the Queen has personally picked her outfits.=too stogey--old fogey. Wearing her outfits more than once is admirable, I think. I just wish she had Diana's sense of style, and was not afraid to loosen up a tad.

    Well my jeans are worn 2 or 3 times before they need washing so are often worn repeatedly . Blouses and dresses are worn once before they hit the dirty clothes and I do not do laundry but every two weeks.

    I'm a guy, so no one really cares what I wear and as an engineer I don't have to try to impress anyone by how I dress... I can wear the same "outfit" all week long and no one will notice or care... I buy multiple copies of the exact same thing so that I don't have to worry about deciding what to wear... Will today be the olive drab or the khaki or the black or the gray t-shirt and which of the 10 pairs of jeans that are exactly the same will I wear today? I've probably got 4 or 5 t-shirts of each color, so it's entirely possible that I can wear the same "outfit" all week while still wearing clean clothes every day... I knew a guy that used to work for IBM "back in the day" and his entire business wardrobe was 2 weeks worth of white shirts, dark blue pants, and enough skinny dark ties that he could afford to spill food on them a couple of times a week and it not be an emergency when he was on the road... The IBM corporate uniform, I guess... Used to know one guy who was color blind, so every clothes item he bought was either black, white, or some shade of gray so that no matter what he pulled out of his closet in the morning, it would match...

    Being ex-military, I tend to have a fondness for the color olive drab and khaki...

    I wear scrubs at work, so my weekday attire is pretty repetitive.

    I wear the same thing two days in a row when I go out, when I'm staying home I wear it multiple times a week.
