Blog: Leonie BarrieA £96k wardrobe

Leonie Barrie | 10 January 2005

I suppose someone had to do it, but it’s fallen to an insurance company to tot up how much money fashion-mad British women each spend on clothes in their lifetime. The figure? A whopping £96,000 according to a survey by Churchill Home Insurance, which quizzed more than 3,000 women to find out how much their wardrobes are worth. Apparently, the average girl starts spending at 14 – forking out £124 a month on shoes, clothes and accessories – and carries on until she’s 79. The survey also showed that 40 per cent of women shop even when they are strapped for cash; nine out of ten have items in their wardrobe which they never wear; and most women buy clothes to cheer themselves up. Tell us something we don’t know!
