I thought most people did this? I wear my things often, yes. I would not repeat a shirt during the week, I at least wait a week before repeating a shirt or top. I usually do the same with pants to my job, but I might repeat a pair of slacks, like a black or brown pair that I really love after a few days (if I wore a pair Monday, and I did laundry in the week I might wear the pair again Thursday) but I don't do that too often. I try not to repeat anything to work during the work week.

But each week yeah, of course. Again, most people I work with do this, repeat their wardrobe.
Weekends if I'm sitting at home yeah. But if I go out nah, I won't wear the same thing out say Friday evening then again on Saturday.

I don't know anyone who will wear something, then not repeat for weeks or months. Everyone I know or work with will repeat by the next week usually, most of their items. Most people I know might have an item they don't repeat, but that's because they usually find they don't like it or it doesn't fit that well after all. I have those items too.

I have basics that I wear every week, definitely. But I like to dress nicely, and I have a lot of nice clothes, so I try to switch it up when I can. My biggest challenge with my work wardrobe is that I go to the gym at lunch and do 30 minutes of intense cardio, 5 days a week. However in the warmer months, even after showering, it's a challenge to completely stop sweating by the time I get back to the office. So I can't wear things that cling or are too heavy. In cooler weather, it's not as much of an issue.

I am not one to wear something just once and toss it in the laundry unless it truly needs it.

I recently did a major move--Hawaii to Minnesota--and got rid of nearly everything I owned, keeping just two suitcases of clothes.

So, yeah, I wear the same clothes a lot, but try to change up combinations, and not wear the same thing to the same place twice in a row.

Wow! That's quite a move. You are in for shock in just a few months!

I am always working on stuff around the house and I have a lot of trashed 'work clothes'. They don't look good but I wash and wear over and over. Makes no sense to me to wear nice clothes to work with chemicals, trim palm trees, or move rocks.

I work in human resources in the restaurant biz so I wear whatever I want.

My uniform consists of white jeans, Manolos, and a cute top.

Yes, it’s strange because I have a lot of clothes but I always seem to grab the same few pieces again and again.

I am retired so no more scrubs for me. I have 2 different types of clothes. the staying home clothes which is just colored tshirts and leggings or shorts if warm. when going out will change into my street clothes where the clothes are a step up from tshirts of every color.

I am a large women 2x and it hard to dress nice when you are only 5ft 2inch 200lbs. so that is why I have 2 sets of clothes. house clothes and street clothes lol
