If you thought your embellished garments were only fit for the holiday party season, think again. At New York Fashion Week, designers went heavy on sequins for Spring 2018, proving that the shiny, glistening detail can be worn for absolutely any occasion outside of New Year's Eve.

Tom Ford set the stage for a sparkly trend as he kicked off fashion week with a slew of evening-ready looks, from slinky gowns with embellished sleeves to super-short mini dresses covered in crystals. At Coach, sequined skirts, dresses and tops boasted patterns inspired by iconic New York artist Keith Haring, while models showed off the looks on an equally shimmery runway covered in glitter. Designer duo Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia applied sequins at both Monse and Oscar de la Renta, which means we'll likely see plenty of sparkle on the red carpet in the future. Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors got in on the action, too, covering dresses and separates in bold-colored and silver sequins, respectively.

If that enough wasn't convincing, there's also award-winning designers, Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong of Greta Constantine, who both arrived from Canada to showcase their new collection inspired by the high-octane glam of the '80s with up to 22 looks featuring at least one sequined item. Sally LaPointe, Sachin & Babi and Moscow's Walk of Shame were inspired to include the glistening adornment, as well.
