The Best of the NET-A-PORTER Sale

One of the commitments we made when we launched The Psychology of Fashion, was to discuss the ‘why’, not just the ‘what’ when it comes to fashion edits. Subconciously, the qualities that certain items trigger and possess are why we feel we would benefit from them. Although individual differences in perception of items will vary, there are certain colors and textures that you can use as a baseline point of exploration when deciding what you need. Here, we’ve picked our favourite items from the NET-A-PORTER sale based on psychological pay-off.

Working in brighter citrus, rainbow or candy colors in small (or large) doses can help uplift sadness, and promote more optimism about the future.
