Just because the weather is drab and dreary, it doesn't mean your wardrobe has to be too!

'Dopamine dressing' (also known as happy fashion) is when you add bright and bold colours to your outfit to enhance your mood and spark some joy. It's a great way to add personality (and a much-needed pop of colour) to your seasonal outfits.

If you want to reserve the novelty Christmas jumper for the big day (or swerve it altogether), this article is for you. Read on for my favourite picks from the latest Cara & The Sky collection that you can use to inject a serious amount of style and dopamine into your Christmas jumper this season.


Dopamine dressing 101

Dopamine dressing is about putting together an outfit that boosts your happy hormone. You can achieve a happiness-enhancing outfit by incorporating bold patterns, bright colours or luxe fabrics. The ultimate goal is to dress for joy.


Add a colour boost to your seasonal wardrobe

There's nothing better than wrapping up in a cosy knit to beat the winter chill.

Traditional Christmas jumpers typically come in rich reds, deep greens and sometimes even a little sparkling accent of gold or silver. However, if you want to avoid coordinating your seasonal wardrobe with your Christmas decs, be bold and introduce some drama with your choice of colour.

Choosing bright, vivacious colours for your Christmas jumper can make your outfit feel fresh and exciting and give you that much needed hit of dopamine during the darker months.


The Best Bold and Beautiful Women’s Christmas Jumpers from Cara & The Sky

Here are my top picks from our collection of snuggly jumpers to help you nail the dopamine-dressing trend this festive season.


Marissa Bubble Stitch Stripe Jumper


Nothing says fun and fabulous quite like the contrast of colour and playful bubble stitch of our Marissa jumper. The relaxed fit, coupled with our signature balloon sleeves, means you can add a little zest to your staple outfits. Alternatively, you can go all out and ramp up the feel-good factor by pairing it with other daring patterns and colours.


Frankie Cable Knit Crew Neck Jumper


A cable knit crew neck is an iconic piece of knitwear. We've given our take on this classic design a fresh colour fusion and a modern boxy silhouette.

'Dopamine dress' your way through the rest of the year with the unique two-tone stitch and fun contrast cable detailing of the Frankie jumper.







Debbie Twist High Neck Jumper


If you want an earthy colour palette with a tutti frutti twist, the Debbie jumper is your gal.

The super soft yarn features understated pops of green, fuschia, yellow and blush; finished with a zingy, contrasting green cuff and collar.

Pair it with your favourite everyday pieces to upgrade a cosy, casual look.
