There are a lot of fancy terms thrown around in fashion these days, and often concepts like “Cost per Wear” are talked about when splurging on an item. Now that we’re in a post-consumerism age where people are more conscious of their purchases, it’s important for people to know where they are spending and saving. So what does cost per wear really mean?

Here’s the math:
Cost per wear = total $ cost of an item / estimated number of times you will wear it

For example, if you spend $50 on a trendy new dress that you only wear once your cost per wear would be $50. But if you spend $200 on a dress that is great quality and lasts for years, you may wear it over 20 times and it will cost you $10 each time you wear it. That means the bargain dress would have cost you  5 times more per wear! Try out this handy calculator below to figure out the true cost of  your purchase:

$ Cost of Item = Estimated Wears =

Now this is a bit of an embarrassing confession, but I wear my Sakura Night Black Midi Convertible Dress a LOT. While the initial investment was $128, I’ve worn it over a dozen times in the last couple of years– and I think I’ve managed to style it differently each time. For a dress that was a bridesmaids dress to start with, I’ve managed to make the cost per wear nice and low, making this piece a great fashion investment for me.

Check out how I’ve styled it my dress & let me know what your favorite fashion investments are!
