  An abundance of glitter, sparkle, and all things shimmery come to mind when thinking of New Years decorations, particularly sartorially speaking. Dressing for the occasion usually implies dressing to stand out, to shine, even if it's just a little bit. But it's that overload of opulence--the oversaturation of luxe glamour in photographs and images that really gets me.

Clockwise from top left:
