Moodboosting fashion to get you through an endless March

Have you heard about dopamine dressing?

It’s the idea that fun, bright clothing can bring you joy in depressing times. Anyone familiar with the mood shifting power of red lipstick knows this to be true. I know, you’ve become quite attached to your joggers. But do you really think your day wouldn’t be improved if you began it by slipping into Ganni’s yellow smiley slogan tees or Irish brand To Dye For By Johanna’s rainbow tie-dye loungewear set?

Take your joys where you can right now, whether that’s a ruffled, vibrant pink blouse or a brightly coloured pair of socks.

We’ve rounded up the most joyous of clothes below, from shorts and summer dresses that you can stare at angrily until you manifest a barbeque into your future, to happy print t-shirts to lift your mood. Try it, it’s the sartorial alternative ordering a takeaway on a Friday.
