Keeping up with trends is a difficult task. So difficult that even Kim Kardashian couldnâ€™t do it herself. But instead, sheâ€™s makingÂ aÂ trend of outfit repeatingÂ â€”Â which is something weâ€™ve been doing all along.
In a â€œjust like usâ€ moment, the 36-year-old had quite a hectic weekend that began on Thursday with her daughter Northâ€˜s fourth birthday. The toddler donnedÂ a pair of fuzzy cheetah slippers for the laid-back occasion, while her mother went for a casual look of greyYeezy sweatpants, white sneakers and a white tank top sans bra, because sheâ€™s that low-key. And the attention that she received for how lax the eveningâ€™s look was, seemingly inspired her to try it out again (and again).
On Friday, Kardashian was spotted in the same look as she went to film forÂ Keeping Up With the Kardashians, where it seems the only thing she managed to change were her shoes. The striped Yeezy sneakers were a departure from whatÂ she woreÂ the day before; however, she wasnâ€™t apart from those plain white sneakersÂ for long, as she paired themÂ with the same ensemble the next day.
Saturday marked the third day that Kardashian wore the same outfit, which people are now assuming was done for consistency on theÂ realityÂ show. However, it might just be a way to save some brain power for the busy weekend.
According to the concept of decision fatigue, it turns out that deciding what to wear is an exercise of willpower that might actually expend too much of it before bigger decisions have to be made later in the day.Â Barack Obama and Mark Zuckerberg are subscribers to the belief and admit to wearing the same color suit and shirt every day, just toÂ avoid making one more decision.
Another idea aboutÂ dressing uniformly takesÂ flattery into account. As seen in the streets of Paris, dressing in similar pieces on a daily basis ensures that an outfit is always flattering. MaybeÂ because Kardashian managed to awe people in the casual look, she decided to stick with it for the rest of the weekend.
TheÂ positive reaction toward Kardashianâ€™s outfit repeating is refreshing after a number of celebrities have been setting the bar high with multiple outfit changes per day. But if we can run to the grocery store in the same outfit that we wore toÂ bed the nightÂ before, Kim Kardashian can too.
