Usually studs on clothing relate to the “Punk” look and this Fall Punk has come around again to be on trend. No statement needed – no anarchy or rebellion – just metallics and geometry. The studs themselves are interesting enough in shape, and the shine of the metal can dress up an outfit.
Think about studs in the 70’s and picture the punk rock scene – and studded black leather jackets. The 80’s music videos showcased Ladies rockin’ out to the hair metal bands – wearing studded bustiers. Think back to the 90’s and remember the studs of 90210. Kidding. Really.
Forget all of the past looks and choose pieces thoughtfully to give a wink to punk. Wear a simple dress and stud covered heels – or pair the heels with jeans. Wear gunmetal or black stud earrings and a chain or studded bracelet. Wear a scull tank with a blazer and pants. Mix in other colors in addition to black to make the look current.
On a side note, when wearing stud & spike embellished high heels be careful not to puncture the opposite foot when standing with feet together. It has been known to happen….
