We’re seeing a massive rise in vibrant, contemporary styles this summer as more people experiment with dopamine dressing; a sartorial practice for mood lifting that entails dressing in alignment with your inner self. For many people, this looks like wearing bright colours and eye-catching designs, which is why fashion has become increasingly punchier, with maximalist styles. From the rise of hot pink Barbiecore looks to the uptick in mid-flossing and cut-out designs, these adventurous styles are everywhere. For the sake of preserving the trend, we’ve rounded up the fashion labels that should be on your radar that will boost your mood with crochet dresses, faux fur bucket hats and colourful prints.
