Men have always complained that women spend too much on clothes and women state that they have nothing to wear.

Research for 2012 indicates that the average American woman on the average spends nearly $3000 a year or approximately 5% of their income on clothes every year.  Add in shoes, jewelry and accessories, then that figure could easily topple over $150,000 in their lifetimes.

Typical spending is represented by people who are at a middle income level. That figure would naturally change for the Kardashian and Hiltons, in which the average woman’s lifetime expenditures could be theirs in a week.
60% of the female population still claims they struggle to find something to wear.

A poll revealed that in 1,000 women, approximately 300 pairs of shoes, 175 dresses, 200 pairs of slacks, and 145 bags and to 50 pieces of costume jewelry is purchased in their lifetime.

With new designs being introduced each season, women feel compelled to keep up with ever changing fashions. This attitude only means they’re always buying something new but are willing to pay to look good and be stylish.

There’s nothing wrong with that. However, purchase less and better quality will always reign. The classics will look as stylish today as they will 10 years from now. Many designer handbags offer staying power as well.
