Whaaaat’s that? 

Dopamine Dressing: "The practice of wearing bright colors in an extroverted style in order to lift one's spirit."

The concept is pretty simple: choose colorful and fun clothes in the morning, don't skimp on extravagance and enjoy the triggering of those happy chemicals in your brain.

We have nothing to lose by trying, especially in winter when our mood is dampened by cold weather and dark skies.

Let's add some color to our lives!

 

Read on for more about Dopamine Dressing as well as some inspiration from fashionistas around the world.

Changing your mood with color

You're probably wondering how mood and fashion could be linked? The answer is in one word: COLORS.

But how can bright colors in our wardrobe actually lift our mood?

Colors can have a profound effect on our psychology. Indeed, the psychology of color demonstrates that colors evoke real emotional, behavioral and physical responses.  Carolyn Mair, a psychologist who has developed a course in fashion psychology at the London College of Fashion, claims that wearing bright, happy clothes has a significant effect on our mood.

However, our own perception of the colors you wear also plays an important role in how they may affect us. If you believe that wearing a certain color lifts your mood, the effects will be increased because it affects your cognitive processes (including your emotions).

 

What do the colors you wear say about you?

Colors you wear impact peoples’ perception of you (naturally); however the impact and meaning of colors varies by culture. Our subconscious attaches different values to certain colors because of their culturally assigned meanings.

The meaning of colors in Western societies: 

Red: Determination, desire, passion, courage

Pink: Femininity, love, care

Orange: Creativity, cheerfulness, enthusiasm

Yellow: Attention-grabbing, happiness, liveliness

Green: Calmness, naturalness, reliability

Blue: Peace, professionalism, loyalty

Purple: Power, mystery, nobility

Black: Elegance, sophistication, strength

"Ame-Caj," a cute combination of the words "American Casual" is a popular style found throughout Asia, particularly in Korea and Japan. If you live in China, you're also sure to have seen a cute girl wearing it on the streets.

The American influence comes from traditional workwear: overalls, newsboy caps and durable jackets. It's a hip, unisex style suitable for winter as it encompasses the use of many layers and covers a lot of skin.

According to Merriam-Webster, athleisure is casual clothing designed to be worn both for exercising and for general use. Athleisure has become an integral part of every fashionable girl’s wardrobe and we’re here to make sure you’re rocking it in the best way. Here are 3 different ways to pull it off, and be super comfortable while doing so.

Athletic all the way

Wear your workout clothes from head to toe, and remember to choose cute, yet basic pieces. Tiffany Diana chose a simple active look with black yoga pants and white tee that never goes out of style, while Quynh Anh decided to mix all of the hottest trends this year together in one look.

Half casual, half athletic

Wear your workout clothes but mix them with your favorite casual pieces such as a denim jacket, puffy bomber, sunglasses or leather jacket.

Minimal athletic

Wear your favorite basic outfit and pair it with one or two athletic pieces. For example: sneakers with a feminine dress, a sweatshirt with a skirt, or a hat with a feminine blouse.

If you’re just getting started on the athleisure trend, try combining 2 or 3 of the items below and you should be good to go.

Re-Do Your Wardrobe

Hey ladies, it’s time to re-do your wardrobe! No more looking at a closet full of clothes and saying, “I don’t have anything to wear today.” Follow these steps and start building your closet around a few basic items that can be mixed and matched and worn year-round.

Step 1: Empty your closet

Throw out everything in your wardrobe. Yes, everything. And no, not in the trash bin.

Step 2: Select all of your favorite pieces

Don’t say that you love ALL of your clothes. We all know in that big pile of clothes, we actually only wear a few of them. Choose your favorite pieces that you truly enjoy wearing, and don’t waste your closet space for clothes that you will never wear.

Step 3: Choose a color palette

In other words, choose your own style. You can go wild with bright patterns or prints, or simply go back to basics with neutral, muted colors that can be mixed and matched easily. We have a few suggestions of neutral basics below.

Step 4: Ensure you have basic pieces

Basic pieces will save you precious time when you wake up late and don’t have time to put together an outfit. Just grab random basic pieces, put on your attitude and bam! You are ready to head out the door.

Step 5: Add some interest pieces

Remember to go basic, not boring!

Step 6: Select shoes and accessorize

Choose wisely.
