Dopamine Dressing – Colour Happy with Jewellery

By Carol Robinson

Founder of One of a Kind Club,
the feel good jewellery brand in Norwich


I’m Carol, the Founder of the independent brand of hand-crafted and curated feel-good jewellery. I aim to boost confidence and bring colour to people’s lives with my contemporary and fun statement pieces, celebrating the individuality of my wonderful and unique customers.

I have been in very competitive environments all through my career.
One common theme I’ve come across is that some of the greatest women don’t have the confidence they deserve. I want to foster a feeling of creativity and expression to move women towards a more positive view of themselves with the help of jewellery.

I have always made jewellery for fun, and after having spent 20 years in advertising, where I learned about being creative, strategic and organised, and after having my second child in 2018, I decided to move to the fabulous, independent championing city of Norwich and followed my dream of setting up a jewellery business with the ambition to inspire confidence to others.

Spring has sprung, and with it comes a renewed sense of energy and excitement. As we shed our winter coats and embrace the warmer weather, it’s the perfect time to experiment with dopamine dressing – the science-backed trend that’s all about using bright, bold colours and accessories to boost your confidence and mood.

One of the leading local brands in this movement is One of a Kind Club, a contemporary fashion accessories label that specialises in unique, colourful pieces that make a statement. Their collections are full of bright, cheerful hues and eye-catching designs, making them the perfect choice for anyone looking to try out dopamine dressing this spring.

So why does dopamine dressing work so well?

The science behind it is actually pretty fascinating. As we mentioned earlier, dopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays a big role in our brain’s reward and pleasure centres. When we experience something that makes us happy, our brain releases dopamine to reinforce that behaviour and make us want to do it again. By wearing clothes and accessories that make us feel good, we can actually trigger that dopamine response and boost our mood.

The idea of ‘enclothed cognition’

But there’s more to it than just the dopamine – there’s also the idea of “enclothed cognition.” This is the concept that the clothes and accessories we wear can actually influence the way we think and feel. When we wear something that makes us feel confident or powerful, we’re more likely to act that way too. So, by donning a colourful, bold necklace or statement earrings, we’re actually signalling to our brain that we’re ready to take on the world.

Mood-boosting colours

Of course, the colours we choose can also have a big impact on our mood. One of a Kind Club is a great choice for this, as their collections are full of bright, cheerful hues like sunny yellows, electric blues, and vivid pinks. Each colour has its own unique emotional associations – for example, yellow is often associated with happiness and optimism, while blue is associated with calmness and trust. By choosing colours that match the mood we want to be in, we can actually help ourselves feel that way more easily.

So, if you’re looking to boost your confidence and mood this spring (or anytime of the year), consider trying out dopamine dressing. One of a Kind Club has everything you need to get started – from colourful statement earrings to bold, chunky necklaces. With their unique designs and vibrant colours, you’re sure to find something that makes you feel fabulous. And with the science backing it up, you can feel confident that you’re making a smart choice for your mental health as well as your style.
