It’s amazing how a simple outfit can change just by adding a few spikes, whether they’re on denim or leather, bracelets, collars or on a little clutch bag.
Less is more with this trend, too much can make you look less sexy/naughty and more….mmm…butch??
Metal hardware is all over the runways, typically in the form of studs, spikes, and grommets. The coolest part about this trend: you don't have to be a tough girl covered in piercings and tattoos to wear studs and spikes. Studs can be uber-edgy, slightly sweet, casual, or dressy, depending on how you play them.
A bedazzled shirt may not be what you are looking for. Adding subtle touches of spikes and studs while accessorizing is a great way to wear the trend, without making it your look’s focal point.
Go for denim. Leather is the classic tough-girl material, but if don't like the leather look, denim is just as fabulous when studded.
Mix your metallics. There's a myth out there that you can't mix metallics, but it's untrue. Mix silver and gold studs for a cool effect.
Toughen up a girly outfit. Studs add an edgy appeal to girly pieces like hair bows, pink pumps, or a chiffon skirt.
