Introducing: Dress The Mood
I feel alive. I feel vibrant. I feel happy. I feel powerful. I feel. I feel. I feel. We all feel.
We all watch movies where characters we have grown to love reveal different emotions shown through multiple costume changes. Super Woman reveals her power through a leather costume. Spiderman is a selfless hero behind a mask. Harry Potter hides behind glasses when he was the courageous hero all along.
While these characters are purposely placed in these outfits to portray a point, we can all relate. Each of us blindly ‘’dress our mood’’ every morning when we pick out our “costumes”.
When you feel happy, you naturally gravitate towards something colorful or bright. When you feel sad, you are more likely to pick up a neutral sweater paired with your comfy denim. This is not always the case, but 9 times out of 10 we do this without even realizing the relevance. Your style is influenced by many factors. It could be your mood, health, or just overall personality that drive your wardrobe decisions. This is a beautiful thing because it reveals your different layers. Your personal growth as a developing human radiates through your style as it grows with you.
