    Women spend a year deciding what to wear

    Women spend almost a year of their lives deciding what to wear, according to a new study.

    Choosing outfits for work, nights out, dinner parties, holidays and other activities means the average female will spend 287 days rifling through their wardrobe.

    Clothes retailer Matalan compiled the results after polling 2,491 women, reports the Daily Telegraph.

    A spokesman said: "What you wear has a direct impact on how you feel about yourself and it is important a woman feels exceptional in her outfit.

    "Whatever the occasion your clothes portray an image and we understand this is fundamentally important to women."

    The study, which was based on the adult years from the age of 16 to 60, found most women spend around 20 minutes deciding what to wear before hitting the town on a weekend night.

    Week nights out can take up to 20 minutes a time too. Deciding on what clothes to take on holiday uses up to 52 minutes each time.

    While on holiday, ten minutes a morning will be taken up trying to find an acceptable outfit with another ten minutes spent picking evening clothes.

    On top of that dinner parties, Christmas parties and black tie events - at around 36 minutes a time six times a year - adds up to three and a half days.

    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.
     
  2. 20 minutes on a weekend night?
    thats massively understating the truth.
     
  3. i know two sisters which probably spend several hours DAILY to choose what to wear
     
  4. Lots of men would do well to spend a bit more time deciding what to wear, for the good of everyone.
