SPARKLE IS HUGE this season. Designers like Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger and Oscar de la Renta were heavy-handed with sequins and gleaming metallic fabrics for their fall 2016 collections. Metal detailing and glitter were also big on the runway. But you don’t have to go overboard with head-to-toe gold lamé to capitalize on this trend.
Give your designs a hard edge with a few strategically placed nailhead embellishments, or employ some glitter thread or metallic ink to put some pop in your logos. Also, consider incorporating metal hardware, like custom cuff links, into company stores and incentive programs for that on-trend touch of metal. Surprisingly, these traditional accessories are a hit with the younger set.
