For women everywhere, a deep anxiety haunts us at every event we attend. It threatens embarrassment, social shame and the potential for ruining a perfectly good night out. Same Dress Syndrome is the horror of arriving at an event and realising that someone else has turned up in the exact same outfit as you. It can happen to anyone and symptoms may include shame, anger, despair and in some cases, excessive drinking.

What is more, this is no longer a rare occurrence in our communities; it’s a full-blown epidemic. It is so widespread that we can no longer escape it. If you yourself haven’t been affected, you probably know someone who has or have even seen its horror unfold in front of your very eyes.

Same Dress Syndrome is a plague of the modern age. It’s born out of today’s high street culture where big-name chains churn out masses of the same few designs. This means millions of people out there will have β€˜your’ dress and in communities where everyone shops in the same areas, the likelihood of catching SDS increases ten-fold.

By following these simple guidelines, your chance of infection can be dramatically reduced. And if you still happen to fall ill with SDS, just take the following prescription to ensure a speedy recovery.

Prevention is better than Cure!

Here's how to deal with same dress syndrome.

1. Stay Clear of the High Street

Don’t, under any circumstances, be tempted by the convenience of high street stores. No one got anywhere by cutting corners and by going for the obvious store choices you are setting yourself up for a fall. It is always better to be safe rather than sorry so take time to seek out stores that are a little more exclusive. Buying from boutiques that carry small stock will dramatically reduce your chances of catching SDS.

Keep It Simple and Dress It up
