Revealed – what you spend on fashion every month
Whether you’re a designer diva or a high-street hoarder, how much is your fashion fix costing you?
The summer sales are now in full swing – which is an ideal opportunity for a wardrobe revamp. But while fashion tastes may vary, there’s a price to perfecting a particular look.
And fashion fans typically spend around £48 per month or £572 per year on clothing to keep up with their chosen trend, new research has found.
Whether it’s full-on designer glamour, the hipster vintage look, the activewear trend or keeping up with the latest high-street finds, the costs all mount up.
In the UK, More than two-fifths (43%) identify with a particular fashion tribe, according to the survey by VoucherCodes.co.uk
The most popular tribe in the survey was found to be the ‘high-street hoarder’.
VoucherCodes.co.uk quizzed more than 2,000 people and looked at the amounts they typically spend on clothing. Here’s how the average monthly costs add up for each tribe they looked at:
High-street hoarders: They shop at ‘affordable’ fashion stores and wear current season clothing. £40.87.
Classic and preppy: Men in this tribe wear stripy shirts and V-neck jumpers while women wear tea dresses. Loafers complete the look. £42.38.
Nineties grunge: Logo T-shirts, ripped jeans, fishnet tights and oldschool-branded sportswear are the hallmarks of this tribe. £34.01
Hipster gear: Vintage clothing, plaid shirts and skinny jeans are favoured by this tribe. £37.32.
Activewear trend: No misshapen leggings that have gone baggy at the knees for this tribe. Perhaps inspired by fitness gurus on social media, it’s luxe leggings and yogawear, completed with the latest fashionable trainers. £66.14.
Designer divas: They shell out the most each month, buying branded garments to complete their look. £164.
