Some of my research shows that feeling good about your ethnic background and feeling strongly connected to your ethnic group is related to all kinds of positive outcomes; including that daily happiness boost.

So much to the extent that dressing in ethnic fashions can facilitate these good feelings about oneís ethnic background, I would agree that wearing ethnic fashions could be a good experience.Ē
