It goes without saying that 2018 was another year of political turmoil, environmental disasters, and a looming recession. It's no surprise to me that people turn to themselves when the world around them is unstable. One way that we take care of ourselves is through self-adornment.
Humans are acutely aware of their bodies, so we like to dress them up. Humans are also weird as hell, so we get a little freaky and fantastical with the ways we dress ourselves up.
This is how fashion and beauty coped with 2018.
