Several studies show our mood can be affected depending on what we wear. Likewise, how we feel upon waking can affect our choice of outfit and subsequent moods. A 2012 study by Professor Karen Pine, from the psychology department at the University of Hertfordshire in Britain, found 57 per cent of women admitted to wearing a baggy top when depressed, compared to a 2 per cent wearing one when feeling happy. Similarly, 62 per cent would put on a favourite dress when happy, compared to 6 per cent when sad. And the outfit women turn to when they are feeling down? Jeans, with more than half of the 100 women interviewed turning to their trusty denims on a blue day.”Happy” clothes tend to be those that are flattering, well tailored and made from bright and beautiful fabrics, Professor Pine said.
