Overshadowed by the pandemic for two years, this year’s festivities will be brighter and more festive than ever. In the fashion world, that marks the return of sheer and glittery party dresses covered in sequins, rhinestones and feathers. Let the festivities begin!
Five, four, three, two, one… Happy New Year! Forget the couch-and-television New Year’s Eve we’ve embraced over the past couple of years as the party spirit returns to the holidays.
With this festive mood comes colorful makeup and nails, and glitter and glitter lashes.
It’s official—sequins and rhinestones are in full swing this season, ushering in the return of all things disco-inspired.
In addition, feathers and velvet will be among the important things of the season, because everyone will help to forget that the coats, woolen dresses and coats must be last year’s holiday.
