Accessories Report

Summer is the time for flowing dresses, airy sandals and dainty florals. This is the time when the girly-girl in most Fashionistas comes out. But as the weather cools down and the leaves begin to fall, a change occurs. The feminine trends from the summer months take on a hard edge, letting Fashionistas show off the tougher sides of their personalities. And nothing says tough chick more than studs.

This Fashionista gets an A+ for going all-out on this trend. She's rocking a great pair of studded, smoky slippers by Steve Madden. She's also wearing a matching studded belt and, as an added bonus, she's carrying her iPhone in a matching studded case! While you only need a few studs to get your point across, this Fashionista shows that this trend can be showcased on almost any accessory available. For an everyday dose of studs, opt for a bag like this. Add a kick to your night out on the town with edgy heels like these or keep it subtle with delicate earrings like these.

Because studs come in so many shapes, sizes and colors, Fashionistas shouldn't be afraid of taking part in this daring fall trend. If you happen to be on a tight college budget, this is the perfect trend to DIY with friends. So whether you're sweet as pie or hard as nails, there's a stud out there for you.

Spotted: Studs were a huge part of Frankie Morello’s fall 2012 line.
