Studs and spikes have been everywhere. This season, they came back again. I cannot describe how much I love studs and spikes. I’m just obsessed with them. Every time I want to dress somehow differently, they are always my first choice. A uniquely decorated accessory will always win me over.
I spotted this Fashionista on her way home. Her spiked booties hit my eyes. Small spikes embellish the back of the calf in a way that is edgy but not overwhelming. Tone on tone stitching, spikes and black leather are born to be best friends. Paired with a military shirt, the whole outfit brings out her inner “rock ‘n’ roll.” No need to mention, this spiked bootie really turns up her look’s wow factor.
Studs are always related to a tough and sharp image. But Valentino offers it a dramatic turnover. Look at these leather pumps on which the metal pyramid studs are not too intense, but add dimension to the meticulously tailored pointed toe silhouette. Valentino offers a romantic display of studs with an intriguing contemporary side. Another good example of a studded bootie is from Chloé. As one of the label’s most sought-after designs, this black leather pair is decorated with gleaming gold studs and buckled straps. Take your cue from the style set and team them with skinny jeans. Or, you can simply copy this trendsetter’s look by getting a pair of similar spiked booties. With a vintage T-shirt and leather mini skirt, you’ll look like a sexy killer.
Spotted: Diesel Black Gold did what they could to make studs fresh in their fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection.
