For a girl who has the fashion world at her feet, Kate Bosworth is particularly good at investing in and rewearing key items throughout a season. There are various clever buys in her armoury (particularly when it comes to shoes and bags) that are styled-up on repeat, and for that we are grateful. The elfin beauty proves that it is entirely possible to be chic beyond chic, just like a Hollywood A-lister, and not be required to make a costume change every three hours. And—as if she couldn't bowl us over with her economical ways any more—she often wears these clever pieces together in one look, without ever looking the same.
So what are the buys that Bosworth stands by? Scroll down to see her favourites…
Unfortunately for everyone else in the world, these patent Carven flats sold out months ago when Kate Bosworth first started wearing them. But they have become her most trusted travelling companion, skipping from an American red carpet to the airport to Europe and back again. She's worn them dressed up—with dollish frocks and mod vibes—as well as casually—think denim culottes and a suede jacket.
Estimated Cost Per Wear: These are literally on call 24/7 and originally cost £243, so we're going with £9.70.
This super-sweet Rosalia Mini (£350) from British handbag label Meli Melo is something of a new addition to Kate's repetoire. It may be freshly unboxed, but she's worn it on numerous occasions already these past few weeks. Not bad when you consider it's realistically priced in comparison to most other designer handbags.
Estimated Cost Per Wear: Considering she's already toted this four times in the past few weeks, it's currently £87.50 but bound to decrease…

Looking glamorous at every turn, these Linda Farrow x Erdem Cat-Eye Sunglasses (£220) have been Bosworth's go-to frames when dashing around sunny L.A. or looking suitably aloof at the airport.
Estimated Cost Per Wear: £15 a go.
Okay, so Kate didn't exactly discover these Stuart Weitzman Highland Boots (£665)—they're practically in every celebrity wardrobe we've ever seen—but she does wear them very well and very regularly. Bosworth showcases their versatility, restyling them for the day with a patent midi skirt and a roll-neck as easily as with a thigh-skimming minidress for an event.
Estimate Cost Per Wear: £55, but they'll so be coming out again next winter.
