Retail Therapy Helps Heartbreak

The average woman spends over £500 on a make-over to help her get over a break-up.

A new survey by the Clothes Show London - the UK capital's largest fashion and beauty event - shows there is a strong relationship between a girl's broken heart and her retail habits, as females find a lot of comfort in shopping.

Following a split, a woman will spend, on average, £250 on clothes, £112 on a new haircut, £67 on beauty treatments and £89 to show off all their new purchases on a night out.

A pair of killer heels are the most popular item followed by a little black dress, sexy underwear, designer handbags and high-end make-up.

Commenting on the results, Clothes Show London Marketing Manager Maryam Hamizadeh says: "It comes as no surprise that woman turn to retail therapy in times of need. At Clothes Show London we see just how much pleasure women get from shopping and it makes sense that shopping would be their first port of call when in need of a pick-me-up. Not only does shopping give women pleasure as an activity in itself, but by creating a whole new look from their purchases, women are able to give themselves a transformation right when they may feel like they need a change most."

Celebrities are no strangers to break-ups and following her recent love split, Jennifer Love Hewitt was spotted out having some retail therapy.
