I’m 16, about to go to 6th form and just wondered how much people spend per month on clothing? I’m a primary girl and everyone seems to be spending loads and I also need to shop for clothes for 6th form so I need an estimate to compare with x

I mean I'm a guy so it isnt completely comparable (I just finished 6th form btw). I go through periods of spending and not spending so probably spend between 50-150 per month I'd say? I almost entirely (except for shoes) shop on depop however so I can usually get more with 100 pound than you could buying things on urban outfitters if you see what I'm saying

I highly recommend depop if you aren't using it already

I dont have a monthly budget.
just spend a lot whenever i want to buy clothes at once.
I just spent £550 within the last monthand like £200 in January/February.
But i will probably not spend anymore untill September when the new Adidas x Calabasas Season comes out because im so fond of Kanye
To be fair though im going uni in september and i had to get new pieces from my wardrobe especially since my style has changed.
Probably going to get a few cheap hoodies and another jacket and then ill be done

Don't compare to me though lol cos i think fashion has no spending limit in my eyes, if you really like something then get it.
But its also about looking for deals and stuff.
6th form - just get essentials like jeans and tops in like simple colours and air forces.
Honestly people dont care what you wear.

also forgot to add that womens clothing is sooooooo much cheaper due to being more in trend in guys therefore a lot of the fast fashion brands are good like pretty little thing, missguided, fashionnova etc..

Same haha, I have a few outfits on cycle which I wear until they start looking a bit tatty, then spend maybe 100-200 on a few new outfits and chuck the old ones. Saves a load of space in the bedroom, only need a small wardrobe

I get all my stuff from Primark. I don't really care because you can get some very nice clothes from there and nobody is gonna tell the difference. Maybe you could splash out a little on a nice jacket or something.

If you're tight on money then remember this: Bill Gates does not believe in spending a lot of money on clothes.

Do you not get tired of wearing the same clothes on rotation??
Can't imagine that for myself i tend to get paranoid and start thinking if people are questioning ''is that all the clothes he got?'' - but then again i am very much into fashion so...

Too much. It's probably linked to psychological problems.

Same my sleeping schedule atm is messed up
My GCSEs finished and I did a lot of all nighters for them so I slept at like 3 or 4 am . Now I am used to that so I sleep really late and wake up at like 1 or 2 the next day.
It's a pain really because I still feel tired during the day

Well you don't have to, and it's hardly a gender thing either? It's just, y'know, more hygienic to change your t-shirt every now and again.

Indeed, but Warren Buffett and Carlos Slim are much more frugal.

The reason why I mentioned 'girls' is because guys wear suits in my sixth form so they do not have to worry much about their clothes but us girls can wear whatever we want. I just wanted to know if I have to wear completely new outfits everyday so I would have to buy clothes every week.

I buy new clothes every summer during my birthday, around £100
I don't see the need to buy new clothes every month, it's pointless.

Shoes: I own 4 pairs and buy new ones when they break lol (but I get quite expensive shoes tho (£200-300), although they do last a couple of years)
