Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton

There are so many reasons to love Kate Middleton (don't worry, we won't list them all here—that would take most of the afternoon), but maybe one of our favorite things about the Duchess of Cambridge is that she isn't above repeating an outfit.

In fact, Kate loves to get plenty of mileage out of her wardrobe. Case in point: the red skirt-suit by Italian designer Luisa Spagnoli she wore today during her visit to Christchurch, New Zealand. Kate also wore this look back in 2011 during a trip with William to their alma mater, St. Andrews.

Another recent repeat? Her navy Zara blazer. She's worn this jacket not once but three times during public appearances: once at the Royal New Zealand Air Force base, during the London Olympics and in Canada when she visited the Duke of Cambridge.

It's really not surprising that Kate likes to recycle her favorite outfits. After all, she is known to mix high and low fashion. Yes, she often steps out in Alexander McQueen and Jenny Packham, but she also keeps labels like Zara, Topshop and Hobbs on heavy rotation.

We like that Kate is making recycling outfits a chic practice. She even has re-worn red carpet gowns, like the time stepped out in the same navy blue Jenny Packham dress three months apart.

Kate's fashion philosophy? What's old is new again!
