Feeling blue this cold winter season? I get it! The holidays have come to an end and now we are left with managing the rest of the winter. Luckily, there are a few ways to boost your mood with the garments you choose to wear every day.
Keep reading to find out how you can feel more positive during the cold winter months.
TREAT YOURSELF TO A NEW GARMENT
There’s nothing like buying a new piece of clothing to boost your mood! We all know that the winter can be rough and depressing, especially after the holidays. However, a little retail therapy can really go a long way. Whether you purchase a new tie or a brand new suit, shopping will not only cure your winter blues, but it will allow you to update your wardrobe for the office as well.
WEAR A POP OF COLOUR
Many studies show that color can significantly boost your mood. That means wearing a pop of color in your outfit is a great way to lighten things up at the office on a cold winter day. Whether you choose to wear a dark forest green or a much brighter color, you should feel a boost of energy at work.
AVOID SOMBER COLOURS
Although black and grey are office-appropriate colors, they are quite somber and can be a downer at the office in the wintertime. Try and gravitate towards more positive colors such as navy blue or wine red when it comes to your office wardrobe during the colder months. As mentioned above, avoiding dark colors should help boost your mood and make you feel like a more positive person in the winter.
TRY OUT A PATTERN
A little bit like bright colors, and fun patterns can also help bring up your morale. You can either choose to wear a shirt, or a pair of pants with a pattern to add spice to your attire. Keep in mind, however, when you wear a pattern, you want to make sure the rest of your outfit is a neutral color that matches the pattered garment. It’s always a good idea to mix in a pattern in your outfit, so long as you don’t look overwhelmingly bright.
In this article, I’ve shown you how to boost your mood in the wintertime through your clothing. This article will hopefully make you feel more optimistic about the rest of the winter months.
