For those of us who simply cannot afford the luxury of wearing something new every time we step out, repeating outfits – in this case, a male shirt – is your best bet to ensure you get a return on investment, and multiple #ootd ops. Within the Insta population especially, a repeat outfit on your feed is considered taboo, so it's very important to update your style game with every post.

In walks fashion merchandiser and stylist Kristia Franklin – aka My Repeat Offender – with golden rules on upcycling. Franklin employs style notes of the early '90s to elevate her latest find: a patchwork paisley print men's shirt. Denim thigh-high boots, skinny shades, and latex apparel and accessories add a trendy touch.

“I've always been enthusiastic about styling on a budget,” Franklin says. “So versatility and repeating outfits with particular tweaks are key.” “As a stylist/merchandiser, I would often hear 'this outfit is a one-time wear so I've decided to highlight the contrary by showing just how to do a repeat. The prop styling and location are an extension of my creative expression, but who doesn't love a vintage bug?”
