What Exactly Is Dopamine Dressing?
When the pandemic hit nearly a year ago, we saw a sudden shift in the way we dressed. How dopamine dressing works is that we actively choose to wear clothing that makes us happy and brings us joy - who wouldn't love to do that? For ages, it has been said that the colour of your dressing always has a direct impact on your psychological process. When we feel good about what we are wearing, we tend to be more confident, isn't it? It's wearing the clothes that make you feel good. For some bright colours is what boosts their mood and whereas, for others, that could be a favourite set of joggers and a jumper. Ultimately, dopamine dressing is whatever makes you feel good. The most important thing is to have fun with it.
