The first snow has arrived here on campus at Indiana University. Winter accessories are now being showcased on nearly every Fashionista/o on campus as an essential to stay warm but also an opportunity to accent their outerwear. This week, I came across the Holy Grail of Fashionisto accessories when I noticed a Fashionisto looking runway approved rocking a pair of studded leather gloves from the Burberry Prorsum fall/winter 2012 collection.
Gloves, obviously, are most known for warming hands, but of course fashion designers have added a twist to a rather functional item. These gloves are nothing short of a fashion statement. But if straight from the runway is a bit too couture for you this holiday season, don't worry because when a high profile glove hits the runway it's guaranteed to be imitated. Fast fashion retailers have done a great job bringing brilliant items, such as this one, from the runway to reality. Similar gloves, and probably just as warm, can be found at Zara and other fast fashion retailers.
Simple studded designs are elegant and unique. Grab people’s attention this winter season and show that you're rugged and chic. Who knows you might end up featured on CollegeFashionista.com too!
Hint: Current men’s clothing trends feature musty desert inspired colors that look great paired with simple yet elegant studded pieces. If gloves aren't your thing, check out these studded shoes!
