Vivienne Westwood Wants Kate Middleton to Repeat Outfits More Often

Although the 31-year-old Duchess of Cambridge is no stranger to wearing the same thing twice (she’s been spotted repeating dresses from Amanda Wakeley, Reiss and Emilia Wickstead on multiple occasions), Dame Vivienne Westwood thinks she’s still not recycling fashion enough. The legendary British designer known for her ethical fashion focus called out Kate Middleton during her fall/winter 2013 show at London Fashion Week. She explains to the Daily Mail that she should wear outfits "over and again because that’s very good for the environment and it would send out a very nice message."

Westwood adds: "If you’re going to all that trouble to get an outfit that suits you, then you should keep on wearing it. I mean you don’t have to have a red outfit one day and then something almost the same in blue the next." 

You asked for it, Kate. If you’re going to be royal, be royal. But if you’re going to be known as a thrifty princess, then really go there and always repeat outfits, shop vintage and maybe even take up a sewing class to start making your own threads.
