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.

That's complicated too...😂

I've always been a bit of a night owl, but I've really messed up my sleeping schedule since May (exams). Never got it back on track ever since. Plus I got quite addicted to energy drinks, which I'm sure don't help with sleep (stopped drinking them for a week already though). Hbu?

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

Ikr I do that too, waking up at 1 pm😂 Also noticed lately I tend to nap late-afternoon and wake up at like 8/9 pm...Rip sleep

I think the key to fix this is to stay awake for one full day and then try to go sleep at a reasonable hour, 10/11 pm or something like that

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.

Next to nothing. I buy the cheapest stuff I can on eBay and wear it to the point of ripping. Repeat ad nauseam. Trousers are about all I'm buying lately as I go down in waist sizes, which means I have a dresser drawer full of different waist sizes. Bulking season right around the corner I guess.

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