New year – new look: clothes for 2011


It’s that time of year when all the television ads are about self-improvement: detox plans, vitamin tablets, exercise gear, herbal tea. January has become the month of health and wellbeing. And if my Christmas was anything to go by, a bit of healthy eating is welcome at this juncture after the endless Christmas meals full of rich food and accompanying drinks.

January is also a good time to take a look at your clothes collection, and start to think about what clothes to wear in the new year. Do you want to stick with the same style, or try something new?

With the VAT on clothes now up to 20%, there will be more focus on value in 2011, and people are also likely to think a bit longer before purchasing new clothes. It doesn’t look like it will be a year for impulse buying a £300 coat just for the fun of it, at any rate.
