Summer 2022 is the year of dressing to boost your mood, and we are SO here for it…

It’s actually backed by science, as psychologist Karen Pine says: “What we wear affects how we feel so much that it can distort and determine our thoughts and judgments.”

Luckily for us, shops are filled with super bright clothes right now, and we’ve scoured the internet to find our favourite picks. If you’re new to the trend, try teaming with neutral separates, but once you’ve caught the dopamine inducing bug, you’ll be wearing full colour block in no time…
