Shape of Happiness
It is all about dressing with joy and embracing playfulness. Novelty shapes like hearts, butterflies, and lightning bolts become iconic symbols of self-expression, adding a touch of individuality and charm. This trend brings unexpected fun and surprising color combinations straight off the catwalk and into your closet where you get to DIYW — do it your way!
Color is crucial within the Shape of Happiness trend, and it makes an appearance everywhere! Specific shades can evoke strong emotions, giving you the option to dress for the mood you want to carry with you throughout the day.
From vibrant enamel-coated finishes to layers of colorful chains, traditional pieces are amplified, and novelty designs pop. Strands of seed beads, random charms, and loud, happy colors offer a myriad of ways to reinvent yourself and empower you to express your personality.
But the colorful fun isn’t limited to accessories. In the Shape of Happiness trend, color extends to ultra-cool clothing with scraps of neon fabric stitched onto chunky sweaters, sporty patches tacked to jackets, and head-to-toe denim mixed and spliced with color.
Shape of Happiness is a look you can live in, inviting you to let loose, explore your playful side, let go of the “rules,” and dress with joy.
