I Found 18 Items With the Lowest Cost-Per-Wear Imaginable

When it comes to basics, there are two distinct categories: the items that are great to have on hand for certain occasions, such as a structured blazer, and the items that you can feasibly wear every single day, 365 days a year, regardless of the occasion, weather, or the company you're keeping. While basics like pointy-toe pumps are certainly great to have, they're not a true everyday item when it comes down to considering what you can wear seven days a week.

On the other hand, you're guaranteed to get the most wear out of the basics below, so they're more than worth the investment. A well-made silk pajama set that costs $178, for instance, has a cost-per-wear of only $3 if you wear it four times a week for three months—but realistically, this is a classic pajama set you'll likely hold on to for years to come. Scroll down to shop the fashion and beauty items you can wear every day. 


I don't know about you, but I change into pajamas the second I get home—no matter what time of day it is. (Sorry, who wants to sit on their bed with jeans on?) Sleepwear is easily the clothing category we spend the most time in, so why not invest in quality pieces that will make you look forward to going home?

Everyday Bags

When it comes to choosing an everyday bag, it's wise to invest in a well-made, high-quality one to ensure it will stand up to the wear and tear of being worn seven days a week. 

Basic Underwear

Where would a list of 365-days-a-year basics be without some cute, comfortable underwear? Entireworld, Savage x Fenty and Negative Underwear are fashion-girl favorites right now.

Even if your skincare routine is minimal and your makeup skills lacking, there's one thing that should always go on your face 365 days a year: sunscreen.
