Spring fashion is just beginning to hit and I’m already excited about a lot of the trends. From cut out pieces to asymmetrical silhouettes and crochet, there’s so much to drool over. However, the most exciting trend this season has to be dopamine dressing. It can encompass a few of the trends for spring and it has even the minimalist, neutral girlies taking note.
What is Dopamine Dressing?
The term was coined for the new trend of wearing clothes that are meant to improve your mood. For many, that’s bright colors, but it can also be fun textures or styles. Basically anything that makes you happy, or gives you a dose of dopamine, falls into this category.
But an easier way of looking at it is maximalist dressing. This is not a trend that’s meant to go unnoticed. It’s bright and happy and stands out. Dopamine dressing is a direct result of staying inside the past two years. Everyone is ready to leave their work-from-home, neutral sweat suits behind and throw on an outfit that exudes life.
How to Wear the Trend
Again, this trend is so great because it’s basically anything that brings a smile to your face. Whether you’re into mixing bold patterns or textures, or just want to throw on bright colors, dopamine dressing is so accessible.
My outfit centered around this $18 mesh skirt — another huge trend — that had a fun pattern and color. It’s no secret that I’m all about wearing black, white, brown, and tan, but this skirt really caught my eye. Of course, I toned it down a tad with a white turtleneck top (it is still winter after all). And then I thought my white boots were a happy medium — I definitely think they’re a stand out piece, but the white color makes them slightly more laid back.
To finish the look, I had to go with a fun, TikTok-inspired hair look. Basically just pulling back two sections of hair from the front. The best part? It’s perfect for third or fourth day hair when you don’t want to restyle it!
Anyway, let me know what you think of the dopamine dressing trend in the comments below! Will you be wearing it this spring?
