1. The concept became especially popular after the COVID-19 pandemic, when people were eager to get rid of stress, anxiety, and boredom.

 理由 

a. 空格前有 be 動詞 were,而空格後有引導不定詞片語的 to,故知空格應置入形容詞、分詞或名詞。

b. 選項中除 (G) broke out 及 (J) came up with 外皆符合條件,根據空格前一句,多巴胺穿搭是指穿讓你覺得開心的衣服並讓心情變好,而本句前半提到這個概念在疫情後特別受歡迎,可知當時人們應是「渴望」擺脫壓力、焦慮和無聊,故答案應選 (H) eager,置入後亦符合 “be eager to V” 的用法。

2. Far from being about following trends or rules, dopamine dressing is about expressing yourself and finding joy in your own style.

 理由 

a. 空格前有及物動詞 following(跟隨),而空格後有對等連接詞 or 以及名詞 rules(規則),故知空格應置入複數名詞以和 rules 形成對等。

b. 選項中有 (E) trends 及 (I) thoughts 符合條件,本句以 Far from(完全不)連接,可知逗號前後應是相反狀況,逗號後說明,多巴胺穿搭是表達自我並在自己的風格中找到快樂,因此多巴胺穿搭不是跟隨「潮流」或遵從規則,故答案應選 (E)。

3. Fashion psychologist Dawnn Karen came up with the term in 2020.

 理由 

a. 空格前面有專有名詞 Dawnn Karen(達恩.卡倫),而空格後有名詞詞組 the term(該用詞,指多巴胺穿搭),且本句時間為過去的 2020 年,故知空格應置入過去式及物(片語)動詞。

b. 選項中有 (B) opposed、(F) associated、(G) broke out 及 (J) came up with 符合條件,本段

4. She had been seeking ways to naturally increase dopamine when the pandemic broke out.

 理由 

a.空格前有名詞詞組 the pandemic(疫情),且根據本句時態,故知空格應置入過去式不及物(片語)動詞。

b. 選項中有 (F) associated 及 (G) broke out 符合條件,空格後一句指出,多巴胺會帶來愉悅感並激勵人們反覆去從事會讓他們覺得開心的行為,可知卡倫應是在疫情「爆發」時這樣黑暗的時刻,一直在尋找能自然增加多巴胺的方式,故答案應選 (G)。

5. While certain colors may be associated with certain emotions, how people view colors is quite subjective.

 理由 

a. 空格前有原形 be 動詞,而空格後有介詞 with,故知空格應置入分詞、形容詞或名詞。

b. 剩餘選項皆符合條件, 本句的開頭為轉折詞While(雖然),因此逗號後前後應為相反狀況,
可知雖然特定的顏色可能與特定的情感「有關連」, 但人們如何看待顏色是很主觀的, 故
答案應選 (F) associated,置入後亦符合 “be associated with...” 的用法。

6. There are also no specific formulas or styles since you need to discover what works for you and makes you happy.

 理由 

a. 空格前有數量形容詞 no(沒有),而空格後有名詞 formulas(準則),故知空格應置入另一形容詞或可作形容詞的分詞以修飾 formulas 和 styles。

b. 選項中尚有 (C) lift 及 (I) thoughts 符合條件,空格後一句以轉折詞 Instead(相反地)開頭,說明只要透過自己所選的穿搭來做自己就好,可知本句應是表達不要去想別人和他們的「想法」,故答案應選 (I)。

9. Dopamine dressing can be a fun and simple way to lift your spirits, help you feel more energetic, and enhance your well-being.

 理由 

a.空格前有引導不定詞片語的 to,而空格後有名詞詞組 your spirits(你的心情),故知空格應置入原形及物(片語)動詞。

10. As opposed to blindly following what’s in fashion, try to figure out what clothes reflect your
personality and help you get joyfulness.

 理由 

a. 選項中僅剩 (B) opposed 符合條件,置入後形成介詞片語 “as opposed to...” 的固定用法,亦符合語意,表試著找出什麼衣服能反映你的性格並幫你得到快樂,「而不是」盲目地追求流行,這樣便能更享受自己的穿搭。

b. 根據上述,故選之。

 

     近年來,一個意指穿會讓你覺得開心的衣服並讓你的心情變好這一概念的新用詞被創造出來了 ── 多巴胺穿搭。這個概念在新冠肺炎疫情後變得特別受歡迎,當時人們都渴望擺脫壓力、焦慮和無聊。多巴胺穿搭不是跟隨潮流或遵從規則,而是表達自我並在自己的風格中找到快樂。
    時尚心理學家達恩.卡倫於 2020 年提出這個詞。她在疫情爆發時,一直在尋找能自然增加多巴胺的方式。多巴胺是一種神經傳導物質,會帶來愉悅感並激勵人們反覆去從事會讓他們覺得開心的行為。有著專業知識,卡倫很快就意識到顏色的力量並開始提倡多巴胺穿搭。
    基本上,多巴胺穿搭就是為了高興而穿搭。藉由穿著特定的顏色或風格,我們可以觸發多巴胺的釋放。雖然特定的顏色可能與特定的情感有關連,但人們如何看待顏色是相當主觀的。也沒有確切的準則或風格,因為你得自己找出你適合什麼、什麼能讓你開心。多巴胺穿搭也能作為一種挑戰自我、走出舒適圈的方式。可以去探索能帶給你快樂的新事物。不要去想別人和他們的想法。相反地,只要透過自己所選的穿搭來做自己就好。
    多巴胺穿搭可以是一種有趣又簡單的方式來提振你的心情、幫助你覺得更有活力,以及提升你的幸福感。試著找出什麼衣服能反映你的性格並幫你得到快樂,而不是盲目地追求流行。然後你就可以用自己的風格打扮自己,並更享受其中。
