Inviting consistent, feel-good routines into our often unpredictable lives can be a daily act of self care. From a fresh shave to a new pair of sneakers, upgrading your personal grooming ritual is one easy-to-make change that promises to have you looking and feeling your best. “Dopamine Dressing” from bright colors to unexpected accessories is a trend we’re loving to boost mood and exude optimism.
We caught up with West Coast barber, Woody Lovell, to hear his top 3 tips for Feel Good Fashion NOW….
1. Moving Meditation
Developing your personal style is one way to cultivate confidence. Simple acts from curating accessories to getting a new haircut often feel transformative and reinvigorating. Invite mindfulness into the way you select your garments in the morning. Picking out your clothes with intention is a daily opportunity to check in with your state of being, to venture out into the world in a thoughtful way.
2. Laid Back & Layered
Premium sneakers always elevate sweats. Keep loungewear looking grown up and intentional by opting for tailored cuts with special details. Add a crisp dress sock to keep accessories on point or balance out a layered leisure look. The Xander sneaker plays well with everything from sports jackets and trousers to athleisurewear and cotton casuals.
3. Cultured & Casual
Premium leather in supple, smooth textures pairs handsomely with rich texture from cotton to cashmere. If you’re into a monochromatic or subtle color palette, mix yarns and fabrics that add depth and dimension. A wool scarf or corduroy trousers are the perfect pairing for soft, cozy essentials.
