Sometimes, effective apparel decoration comes down to the following: the shinier, the better. "Another technique that's becoming more and more popular is that bedazzled look where they're putting sequins or other types of jewels on a shirt to give it that flashy appearance," noted Paul Kory, vice president of sales for Dyenomite Apparel, Hilliard, Ohio.
"We're seeing a lot of that, especially on some of our shirts that are called an ombré or a dip dye, where it starts off darker at the bottom and then the color graduates lighter at the top," he continued. "People are doing sequins or little rubies or things like that [which] give it a high-dollar-value look where the price doesn't really come out to all that much, because that process is relatively inexpensive."
