Serial Outfit Repeater: Oversized Grey Sweater & Lipstick Print Maxi Skirt

Keeping in line with one of the reasons I blog about my outfits, I thought it might be a good idea to go one step further and actually re-wear some of the outfits I've blogged in the past and re-blog them again here on The Good Weekender.

I was especially inspired to do so after reading this article on; the phrase "Serial Outfit Repeater" specifically caught my eyes because I've always thought of myself as one. But to find that a Vogue fashion writer (we sort of share the same name, too) is also diligently repeating outfits so often they have become her uniform is sort of eye-opening and refreshing, to say the least.

I may not have a uniform per se — although I'd say this outfit style is close enough to one for me — but I do repeat a lot of my outfits.

And I mean, A LOT, honestly; it's just you don't see it in my little virtual space here!

I loved so many of my previous outfits in The Good Weekender but I thought this oversized grey sweater and my lipstick-print maxi skirt would be a good start. I wore the same sweater + maxi skirt combo in late 2016, with a printed scarf for my hijab and my white red-accented Stan Smith sneakers — which, by the way, was the very first time I had worn those sneakers.

This time around I went down the chunky platform sneaker route (disclaimer: still am obsessed with them) and switched the printed scarf with a plain red one.

I also wanted to play out the grey of the sweater more so my grey suede box bag was perfect for just that.

I gave myself one rule for future posts in this "Serial Outfit Repeater" series: the top and the bottom parts of the outfit have to be the exact same things in the previous and current posts. (A dress or a onesie piece will not qualify.)

If the top part of an old outfit consists of two layers, e.g. a t-shirt and a blazer, wearing just one of them will still fit the rule, as long as I re-wear the same pair of jeans or skirt or whatever I paired with the top part in the older post.

The point is to not one-up the previous ensemble, but rather to show how you can play around with the pieces in your wardrobe to breathe fresh air into an old look!

So what do you think of this restyle?
Do you prefer the new styling of the lipstick print skirt or the older styling? I will let you know my personal choice in the reply to your comment!


  1. There's something so bright and optimistic about the red scarf!! I have to go with that ensemble my dear! I like the new platform sneaks too :-)
    Love, Jude

    1. Thank you Judy <3 I had to think hard about which I prefer when I wrote this post but then decided to go with the first outfit because the printed scarf is one of my most favourites - but I'm definitely not going to complain about you liking an updated version! Besides, this plain red scarf has saved so many of my outfits before, too.

  2. I had chosen the older styling as my favourite but now that two people have commented choosing the newer one, I'm having second thoughts about my choice, I have to say! Thank you for commenting, Hum <3

  3. I'm loving both and can't decide. I feel like if you're feeling extra bold and cheery, the red scarf just adds the right kind of spice to the look. And if you're feeling like mixing prints in a more subdued color mix, the older outfit feels just right. I think we're all outfit repeaters that share different outfits on the blog so as not to populate the space monotonously heheh :D

    1. If I have to choose, I'd go with the printed scarf, but people seem to like the solid red scarf. (Also, I love love LOVE the fit of my platform sneakers.) But yes always to spicing things up!

      I'm always happy to see people repeating fashion items on their blog. Those who wear a completely new head-to-toe look in every single post on the other hand almost confuses me because I'd be like how much clothes do you shop and where do you keep your things?
