On average women spend nearly a year of their life deciding what to wear, the findings of a new study suggests. Can you believe this? Though it sounds odd, I think it is true and applicable to most women. The study, conducted by clothes giant Matalan, found that on average a female spends 287 days of her life rifling through her wardrobe deciding what to wear.
The study was based on poll results that involved 2,491 women within the age of 16 to 60 years. It revealed that most women will spend around 20 minutes deciding what to wear before going out on a weekend night. Even during week nights women spend up to 20 minutes a time deciding what to wear. And during holidays it may take up to 52 minutes each time.
The study also found on average women will try on two outfits each morning before coming to a final decision. And one in two women spend 15 minutes the night before work working out what to wear. Interesting. Isn't it?
Why women spend lots of time deciding what to wear? According to a spokesperson of Matalan, clothes represents an image and it is fundamentally important to women. Also, what you wear has a direct impact on how you feel about yourself . That's why it is important a woman feels exceptional in her outfit. Yes, that's why we love to shop!
