These are the uni cities where students spend the most on clothes

Dear Manchester, your Depop addiction is getting unhealthy

It’s no secret that clothes cost money and that nice clothes cost even more. Trouble is, before you can say, “Crocs,” what you think are fresh garms, are probably already on the rubbish heap.

This is the world of fast fashion we live in. But some people take it to the extreme.  You know the ones. They’ve got Depop parcels coming out their ears and probably have Boohoo tattooed on the left side of their rib cage.

Now, thanks to new data provided by NatWest, we can see who the biggest student spenders on clothes actually are.

On average, Manchester students spend £54.70 on clothes, shoes and accessories every month. Birmingham students are not far behind, spending on average £48.90 per month, shortly followed by London students who spend £48.80.

Students in York spend the least on clothes, with the average student shelling out just £21.40 every month.
