If you ask any fashion blogger what their main worry is, it’s definitely not having enough clothes and I can totally relate with this. It’s always on my mind when I’m planning a new blog post or when I’m taking pictures for Instagram. I’m constantly worrying about the money I have to spend for all the latest trends that seem to change every week and if you even dare to wear something from last season you are automatically no longer relevant. This has been a struggle of mine for a while, so I actually asked myself can fashion bloggers wear the same thing twice?
The Answer is YES!
Of course fashion bloggers can wear the same thing twice or as many times as they want. All the items in these pictures I have worn before, either in a blog post or on Instagram but could you really notice? No, of course not! That’s because as a reader you don’t really take notice that much but, as the writer you notice and worry about everything. This is a very stressful way to live, its like a beauty blogger not using the same product twice, crazy right? You buy a foundation expecting to use it till it’s all gone, but when you buy a new top and only wear it once is just insane. You can spend the same amount of money on both but only one is acceptable? Well, this is about to change.
Being able to express yourself is the main point of having a blog, you want to show others what you have and maybe inspire them while doing so. So, why does this mean I can’t wear the same jacket twice that I love, or a cozy jumper that keeps me warm in the winter? Doesn’t it showcase that you truly love an item if you wear it more than once in pictures? I like to think so.
However, when you are talking about fashion or beauty it is helpful to be able to keep up to date with the latest trends. This doesn’t mean you have to buy every single trendy piece there is. What I would do personally is have staple pieces that can be worn with any outfit, such as basic jumpers, a nice coat or easy to style shoes. Then, when a trend piece comes out you can go out and buy that item without having to buy a whole new outfit as well. This is easy on your wallet and also on your wardrobe space.
Another tip I would suggest is, invest in your staples and cheapout on the trends. This is purely because you are going to be wearing the staples a lot more and it really does make a difference to have sturdier pieces. Also with the trendy pieces you will probably just wear them once and they will never be looked at again, therefore if you only spend a little bit of money it won’t affect you as much.
I hope this answers the question, can fashion bloggers wear the same thing twice? Well in my case I certainly can and will be doing! Hope this post has helped and until next time x
