Women who typically are responsible for family clothing purchases and budgets kept their pocketbooks tight in 2010. Furthermore, as the employment picture failed to improve in 2010 and fewer women were joining the work force, fewer women were augmenting or replacing their work wardrobes. 2010 wasn't a particularly dynamic year in terms of women's apparel sales and must-have fashion items, either, from what I gathered the many retail conference calls I listened to in 2010.
