Although ‘dressing up’ can take extra effort and time, it has been proven to make people feel good in addition to making people receive a higher number of compliments which can also aid the feel-good factor. A number of studies that have recently been completed show that women have experienced better moods and emotional states when dressing in nicer clothes – making dressing nicely one of the easiest methods of improving ones moods, quickly and effectively.
When a woman is depressed or feeling down they are much more likely to wear baggy jumpers/tops and jeans – which are considered by many to be ‘comfort clothes’, however by wearing a cute dress and jewellery women all over the world are able to feel much happier and more positive, instantly. This suggests that making the effort to dress nicely really can make a difference, and even those who can’t be bothered should give it a try.
Similarly to how clothing garments can affect ones mood – so can the colours that we wear. By sticking to ‘safe’ colours such as black, brown, navy, white and grey people all over the world are missing out of the health benefits which come with colour.
Changing shopping habits and opting to purchase colourful clothing can boost ones self-esteem and well-being. Colours whether painted on the walls, or our outfits, can offer a range of psychological effects – with certain colours triggering certain neurological responses within our brains. Here are how just some of the colours can work:
Pinks and reds – when looking at these colours we release dopamine which improves moods, raises the attention span and boosts sex drive.
Cool blues – these colours can provide people with a sense of calmness therefore are great for people to wear when they’re feeling stressed.
Bright red – this is the best colour for anyone looking to lose weight to wear as is has been known to increase metabolism.
In addition to this, to further improve moods women can opt to make their own clothing and dresses using dress fabric which is available to order online, making it incredibly easy for all. Making your own clothes could not only provide you with unique garments which fit you perfectly, enabling you to look greater than ever before and in turn feel great also but could also provide you with a real sense of achievement, and the compliments which you will receive will only add to this.
