Dopamine Dressing: How to Look Good and Feel Great
Embrace bold and bright colour palettes and embrace feel-good dressing to lift your mood and beat the blues.
A funky, feel-good trend to watch is dopamine dressing, which involves wearing clothes and accessories that boost your mood, increase your happiness, and create good vibes. Dopamine dressing has been all over social media, such as Tik Tok, and is all about wearing cool patterns and vibrant colours to boost your mood. However, now that winter has brought a downer vibe, it’s time to extend your wardrobe colour palette and switch from neutrals to more colourful, fun pieces. Bright sneakers, eye-catching jackets, funky sunglasses, cool hats, bold patterns, vibrant tracksuit sets — the possibilities are endless!
Several examples of this trend were seen on Spring/Summer 2022-2023 runways, including cargo jackets, pastels, and neon colours, including reds, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, purples, and celebrities such as Pete Davidson, Tyler the Creator, Snoop Dogg, Childish Gambino, Angus Cloud, Jack Harlow, Lil Nas X and others have been spotted wearing them both at prestigious events and on simple errands.
Some great brands creating super creative, colourful street style pieces and accessories and taking the lead in mood-boosting couture include KAPITAL, ASICS, Nike, Culture Kings and KENZO, to name a few.
A wide range of shades, patterns and possibilities await you. So, whether you want to add some zest, style and pizazz to a blah wardrobe or elevate your mood with bright sneakers or sunnies, we’ve rounded up the coolest dopamine-dressing men’s garments and accessories to boost your mood.
