If you’ve been keeping an eye on trends this year, there’s one color you’ve likely noticed popping up everywhere — yellow! From yellow home decor accents to sunny eyeshadow shades, different variations of the golden hue are having a moment, especially when it comes to fashion. From lemony dresses to mustard accessories, incorporating this tawny tone has never been easier (or more on trend).
The Science Behind the Yellow Fashion Trend
We know that yellow is a popular color for clothes, but why is the color so beloved in the fashion world? It’s simple really — yellow makes you happy. In fact, there’s science to back up the adoration. So why do we love yellow clothing so much?
It perks you up: It’s hard not to smile when you’re exposed to the golden hue! The reason: Yellow causes the brain to release more serotonin, which instantly lifts spirits and makes you feel more optimistic.
It enlivens you: Experts say the high-energy glow of yellow promotes digestion and has even been proven to kick your metabolism into high gear. This leaves you revitalized, motivated, and pounds thinner!
It boosts your self-confidence: Studies have found that those who wear the bright color seem friendlier and more approachable. This ups your self-esteem and makes you feel more self-assured.
