Experts Say Dressing Up Can Totally Boost Your Quarantine Mood

Since quarantine started, I've been living in shirts and shorts all the time. I can't even remember the last time I wore a dress.


Last week, I had to run errands and since I'm already out of the house, might as well use the time to shoot and be more thoughtful in the way I dress. Boy, it feels so good dressing up again. And trust me, it can totally boost your mood.

Even science has an explanation for that. According to the theory of enclothed cognition, clothing has an effect on our cognitive processes. In simple terms, our thoughts are based on physical experiences, which could be connected to what we are wearing and the symbolic meaning that those items hold. 


Studies in enclothed cognition show that clothing can also affect how we interact with others, enhance our psychological state, and improve our performance, all of which will go some way to lifting our mood.

Fashion designer Sukriti Grover through Hindustan Times said "clothes have a measurable effect on our mental health. How we pick something from our wardrobe each morning, be it for a day at work, for lunch with friends or a party on a night out, each outfit has a symbolic meaning and has a definite effect on the wearer’s psychology and performance.” 


So if you're feeling down because of the pandemic, all you have to do is get up and put on your best pieces to lift up your quarantine mood.
