Seasonal depression is a real thing. This is the time of year when it feels like winter will never end. It’s cold, work seems endless, and you may feel like there’s nothing to look forward to.
Good news for you! I have a scientific answer for you!
Sequins can cheer you up!
It’s a fact! It’s proven! And it’s a way to break the seasonal depression!
I know I’ve read that what you wear can affect your mood. Do I remember where? Nope. But would I lie to you? Nope. And way beyond science, I have my personal belief- your fashion can e a magical thing. What we wear can affect our mood, walk, day, and seasonal depression. So can sequins cheer you up?
Here’s the great thing about sequins. You can use them in more than one way to cheer you up. Option A: Just wear them. Wear a sequin skirt or top or shoes just because. Wear a sequin dress, and see wear your day takes you. Option B: Plan something to look forward to and wear sequins to it. (There’s more science about how having something to look forward to increases your happiness. I think it’s the same with sequins. And shoes.)
I think that the moral of the story is that no matter how gray it is outside, no matter how cold it is: when you have sequins on (or have something to wear sequins to), your mood lifts. Maybe it’s the anticipation or the juxatipositon, but sequins can cheer you up.
Why should we stop them?
This sequin dress that cheered me up? Vintage and from one of my loves Recess LA. I love the color, the detail, and those sequins! I liked pairing with flats: unexpected and these flats cheer me up. Randomly? I’m dying to wear this dress open over a white tank and jeans; and between us, we’ll probably see that look at some point (my Insta is @racheladelicia).
Did this dress change my life? Nope. But it makes me happy, and cheers me on days when I need it. So I have no doubt that sequins can cheer you up!
While this dress is vintage, and these shoes are from a season or so ago, I’ve linked similar items below. Yes, it may be freezing, but let’s cheer up!
What other scientific knowledge do you have to cheer us up?
