Kate Middleton’s knack for repeating outfits is so world-renowned, she’s already earned for herself the title “The Royal Recycler”.

We know there are those of you who tire of seeing her in the same things again and again but we here at Your Next Dress can’t help but be big fans of Kate Middleton’s nonchalant re-wearing of outfits. Not only is it realistic and makes her seem more relatable, but it also shows that the Duchess of Cambridge has actually got the talent for making old styles look fresh, new and occasion-appropriate.

Fashionistas out there know that that’s no small feat; it’s a lot easier to purchase something new than it is to rework an already worn top, skirt or dress (especially one that’s remarkably cute and people might remember you wearing before).

But because of Kate Middleton’s penny-pinching royalty appeal, we found ourselves not minding at all that she wore these 5 dresses again this 2012. Our sister site Your Next Shoes also covered Kate Middleton’s top 5 “recycled” shoes for 2012.

Now the question on our minds is: how long will Kate Middleton be repeating outfits now that she’s pregnant and her belly will be growing? She has to purchase new maternity wear at some point. We can’t wait to see what Kate Middleton’s maternity style will be like!
