We all have that item of clothing that seems to make us happy the moment we put it on. As we pull into 2014, why not infuse our wardrobe with more fashion pieces that bring a smile to your face? You might have a specific color that does the trick, like yellow or bright pink, or it could be a peppy pattern.
If this is the first time you’ve thought about your clothes impacting your mood, be aware as you get dressed over the next few days. I always feel strong, if I put on a smart suit, free-spirited if I wear a flowing dress, and tougher if I’m wearing my combat boots.
If you’re a skeptic or a believer, I have compiled 20 items that will show you the way to dress for happiness. I dare you to look through these pictures without your mouth curling up into a little smile. Imagine your day if you’re wearing them!
After you’ve been inspired by these choices, head over to your own closet. Find the pieces in your wardrobe that have a strong feeling of happiness, or next time you’re shopping, pick items that will really make you feel great. Happiness is a choice, and it can start with what you put on your body. Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself!
