Read Surveys (By Question)
9. Are there any clothing (or related) items that you have in multiple? Why do you think you keep buying this thing?
I have lots of pairs of the same Urban Outfitters trousers but in different colours haha - purely because they fit perfect and it's such a rare thing for me to find comfortable trousers which fit well. Same with Zara's stripey t-shirts!
i have about 4 plain black t-shirts, 3 plain white t-shirts and 3 plain grey t-shirts, that are all exactly the same style. i buy them because it means that i can put them with practically everything and i won't think that something in my outfit is clashing.
I basically collect scarves. I like the feeling of having something covering my neck, and scarves are a fun way to accomplish that. They're also relatively small and cheap, and can easily be bright and have fun patterns, while other clothing items can't necessarily.
Black t-shirts! Dark jeans. Because I wear them a lot.
Black ponte pants - I buy at least 2 pairs every year because they are pants that can double for casual and work wear which means they are worn almost every day in the colder months.
Jeans, because they suck my fat rolls in cover the things I don't want people to see. They make me feel more comfortable.
I buy a lot of white cotton dresses - when I travel, or go back home to India. they are easy to dress up or down, and remind me of being younger and more carefree. They are also perfect for the tropical climate I now live in - Singapore.
cardies, leggings, padded coats - I just like them
T-Shirts. Shoes. Like both. Wear both a lot
I have a lot of different shades of high waisted jeans. I like the lines they give my body and can be worn when it's cold. I have two of the same perfectly fitting Forever 21 peter pan collar dresses. All of my dresses nip at the waist. I feel most comfortable when my body is proportionate in clothes. A waist on everything lends me to that break up.
Exciting Things that dont really fit, but rather inspire me.
A pair of men's shoes. I bought them and loved them, so I then bought the next size up as well.
Also, a comfy knitted shirt. It's so hard for me to find winter clothes I like, so I bought four of the same shirt in different patterns/colours.
I have multiple black dresses. I keep buying black dresses because I like black and black makes me look (and feel) slimmer than I am. I find black dresses incredibly elegant and beautiful, but equally very practical. I don't tend to delineate my wardrobe that much - what I wear to work I will generally wear out in the evening and in the weekend. I'll wear the same black dress to work on Monday with a blazer, scarf, black stockings and a pair of boots that I wore on Saturday with my Adidas Stan Smiths and a big woolly jersey thrown over top.
Black pants and grey sweaters. I am trying to not duplicate anymore, but I love the simplicity.
Matching bras and panties. I feel sexy even when I am just wearing jeans and a t-shirt
I rarely buy mutiples. The only one I can think of is a COS dress that I have in 2 colors. It is so hard to find work dresses that are not too short or too tight.
Jeans, t-shirts, sneakers. White t-shirts are a staple and I'll always need fresh ones when the older ones yellow are relegated to housework wear.
And I love denim as a fabric and am always interested in checking outs washes and finishes, and inevitably every few years I am tempted to buy something to add to my collection.
Ditto for sneakers. On a daily basis I lean towards classic, simple styles but I am always on the lookout for unusual colours and materials. My weakness is Onitzuka Tigers from Japan - every few years they'll make something really beautiful in a limited run and I can't say no.
White bluses and basically everything...
I own two white short overalls and two black overalls and 9 of the same old navy shirt in 4 different colors. They are comfy and convenient and soft and nice.
Dresses because they show off my physique
I have several pairs of slouchy, comfy, tapered high-waisted pants (in black, duh). I like them because I can dress them up with heels, a nice top, and a leather jacket, or throw on a t-shirt and flat sandals and be set for a weekend of errands. I rank them in nice-ness order based on what material they're made of (polyester, cotton, silk). They're more forgiving than jeans, and I like to sit in weird ways at my desk.
I also have 3 of the same top from Aritizia. I have only fairly recently been brave enough to wear sleeveless tops, and this one isn't even the most flattering. But, it's chic, NEVER wrinkles, and goes with a ton of things.
I have way too many black and white t-shirts, because I will never, ever stop hunting for the PERFECT one.
And, lastly -- black ankle boots. They're just all so DIFFERENT. Right??
Yes, raglan sleeved sweatshirts. I find them in thrift stores or consignment shops and I love them. They are more casual and consistently fitting of me than a sweater, and I can sleep in them if necessary. Nowadays sweatshirts are acceptable daytime wear with fitted pants.
Grey t-shirts. I haven't found the perfect one yet.
I think they' are comfortable, they suit almost everyone, and usually you can find shirt with a lot of different texture, patterns, colours etc.
And also, bags. You can't have too many bags in your closet.
Apart from underwear and socks and stockings, not that I know.
Not really, no.
I have lots of t-shirts with funny pictures or messages on them, just for the fun and laughs. I have a lot of cardigans and stuff that I can use to cover my fat arms.
J.Crew Long Sleeve Painter Tees and J.Crew 4" Chino Shorts in all colors. Simple. Easy to throw on. Easy to dress up and dress down. Jack Rogers Sandals (either Platinum or White) because I buy a pair and within the year, they are so broken in and dirty that I insist on getting a clean pair.
Leggings. They're really comfortable and cute, and they go with everything.
If I like the fit of an item of clothing, I will buy the same item in a different color or with a different pattern. I do this because it makes sense—I already know I like the way I look in it. Also, I own and wear cardigans in many different colors because I am a little bit cold all of the time.
