Dopamine dressing is the latest fashion trend for 2022. It was born out of our craving for color in our fashion choices. During the pandemic it seemed like our only options were gray or black, sweats to match our mood. This athleisure wear did serve a purpose. With no offices to go to or no special occasions to attend, these drab colors were both easy and functional. But now enters 2022, with the world roaring back to life, it’s time to pull out a sequin dress or a pair of purple velvet pants and join the Dopamine Dressing craze. Dopamine dressing was best illustrated in the Fall/Winter 2022-2023 Valentino Pink PP collection. It was a joyous outburst of color from Pink Shoes to Pink Coats and everything in between. This collection reminded us to have fun again with our fashion choices. The vibrant runway that showcased these pretty-in-pink ensembles was the epitome of what dopamine dressing means. It is a celebration of color and a chance to rejoice through our wardrobe choices. The definition of dopamine dressing is “a person’s motivation to dress in a way that will result in a positive outcome, like feeling more confident, competent or happy”. The term was first coined by Dr. Dawn Karen. Dr. Karen is an American Fashion psychologist who has studied the effect of color on human behavior. So this Fall when you are sprucing up your wardrobe and tossing out those gray sweats, look for outfits, including pink womens designer heels, that bring joy and color to your life.
