How to use wear in a sentence?

  1. Paris Colby:

    I feel like if it's something that I'm going to be wearing everyday, I see it as kind of an accessory, whatever you're wearing that day, you want it to go with whatever you have on. ( When I wear my custom mask) I think it says, she's got good style, she's got good taste.

  2. Madelena Perrelli:

    Coats and pajamas are a mainstay, as well as Halloween costumes and fun holiday wear.

  3. Paige Spiranac:

    I was harassed, my family was harassed. I was receiving death threats, people were invading my privacy, I was being blackmailed. This was going on while I was trying to play, when it comes to the golf industry, I know that people see me as a gimmick. I don’t think I am. If I was a guy and I had the same social following, I don’t think people would call it a gimmick. They’d say it was great. People seem to think I got where I am because of the clothes that I wear. That’s unfair to me and unfair to all of my accomplishments. I probably do more community service than any other professional golfer.

  4. Daniel Frogel:

    Are they actually protective ? How long do they last for ? We have to be very careful about what kind of advice we're giving, we can't tell people to act differently, to not protect themselves, to not wash their hands, to not wear masks.

  5. Bishop Richard Cumberland:

    It is better to wear out than to rust out.
