Being fashionable is not an inexpensive endeavour - but thanks to online retailer Miss Pap, fashion is now affordable on a living wage.

Introducing a new line called the “Living wage wardrobe,” the fashion retailer is offering clothes, shoes, and accessories - all for just £7.50.

On the Miss Pap website, it states: “Ever wondered if you could earn an entire wardrobe in a day’s work? Now you can with MissPap’s Living Wage Collection.

“We stand proudly behind all our gals earning the national living wage in the UK and want to make sure that you have everything you need to get by, feel great and look your best.

“Looking for a new outfit? Earn it by lunchtime! Just fancy a new top? It’s yours in 1 hour!”

A living wage is defined as a wage that is high enough to maintain a normal standard of living - and in the UK it is set at £7.85 an hour, the same price as the items in the new range.

According to John Quinn, the CEO of MissPap, the range was created for women who are just getting by.

He said: “There are so many people in the UK that are part of the JAM (just about managing) category, and who don’t see fashion as being something that is affordable.

“MissPap wants to change that. We’ve always prided ourselves on making sure trends and style are affordable and accessible for everyone.

“We stand proudly behind all of our girls, those who earn the national living wage as well as those who earn more, and we want them to know they can still have enough to live on, feel great and look good - no matter what your budget is,” he continued.

And with savings on almost every item and four pages of options, the new line seems like a great deal.
