15 Iconic Costumes That Appeared in More Than One Movie or TV Series

Creating the wardrobe for a production can be very expensive, so some film creators and designers decide to recycle some garments that have already been used in the past to lower costs in the project’s budget. This is how we might sometimes see dresses or accessories that have already appeared in other films or series.
