Average women buy half their body weight in clothes each year

London -  A new study has revealed that average woman now buys half her body weight - 62lb - in clothing in just one single year.

According to experts women are also getting rid of similar amounts each year, reports the Daily Mail.

The average woman now has 22 garments hanging in her wardrobe that she has never worn and is expected to spend 133,640 pounds in her lifetime on looking good. 

The extraordinary statistics have been attributed to the rise in 'fast fashion' in which women can now buy cut-price versions of celebrity looks.
 
They have also got into the habit of spending less on individual items and buying more.

Consumer expert Lucy Siegle claimed the average woman now accumulates four-and-a-half stone in clothes in just a year.

She calculated the figure after studying research conducted by Cambridge University into textile imports.

Siegle blamed celebrity culture of wearing something new each day for the rise of these new generation of shoppers.
