Each season I find myself mentioning how excited I am about fashion when going from one season to the next. However, I honestly can’t remember being THIS EXCITED about it in a really long time. If you’re wondering why, well I believe it could probably be attributed to just one word, PANDEMIC!!!
Following the doom and gloom of the pandemic that continues to linger, most of us, fashionista or not, are craving almost any kind of happiness. So even if you could care less about fashion, suddenly the neutral colored items in your wardrobe that you might have reached for before, you may now be looking to replace with bright vibrant colors, without even realizing why. Stores and brands alike are embracing colors in a major way, so you’ll have no problem finding a colorful item of choice.
Just to get a little scientific on you for a moment, endless amounts of research shows the correlation between color and dopamine. Dopamine is known as the feel good hormone. Different colors can neurologically trigger emotions associated with dopamine. You’d be surprised by how quickly you start smiling or get a warm fuzzy when you put on that vibrant green dress or those electric bright blue pants.
As a fashion girl who has already always included pops of color in my wardrobe, I find myself over the moon when seeing such an embrace of color. Guess that’s one of the very few exciting things to come from the dreadful pandemic.
For my fabulous neutrals only babes who almost dare to be seen in something other than a neutral and are maybe thinking, “I just don’t think I can pull off such colorful looks.” To that I’d respond by suggesting that you start off small with perhaps little pops of color, like a bag, shoes, or a bralette. Girrlll.. just get into it, you’ll thank me I promise!!
