A survey carried out by Oxfam has revealed that thousands of women are suffering from so-called 'Outfit Repetition Syndrome'. Out of the 2,000 women surveyed, 46 percent said they wouldn't wear their favourite party outfits more than five times.
A spokesperperson for Oxfam said: 'The days of the staple party dress are officially over. As social media usage increases, so does ORS.'
Rachael Adams from Essex, says that after being tagged on Facebook or Instagram in a new dress, she will then banish it to the back of her wardrobe.
'It's social media's fault,' Rachael says. 'You know other people will notice if you wear the same thing twice and you don't want to be seen as boring. '
