The recent emergence of the spike and stud trend in the fashion world has proved to be a worthy one. First inhabiting our combat boots and shoulder bags, but thankfully having spread to articles of clothing, jewelry and accessories, studs have successfully taken center stage as an obsessive craze this season, and we are all certainly overjoyed about it. Studs have influenced us Fashionistos and Fashionistas to express a chic edginess to exude our inner boldness without any regret.
This week’s Fashionista wore a sweater featuring studs. By strategically wearing such a simple outfit, her studs, initially seeming like a subtle triviality, effortlessly stand out as the focal point. Amid classic blue jeans and black riding boots, the bold shoulder of her tri-blend sweater is properly highlighted.
Her valuable technique can be applied to all different parts of the fashion spectrum. For instance, to allow a studded belt to be the concentration of an outfit, it would have to be among darker jeans and a solid shirt. If it were to be worn with printed bottoms and a knit sweater, attention would be easily detracted from the belt. This approach to fashion additionally allows us to effectively utilize our entire wardrobe by accentuating supposed insignificant additions and turning our supplemental accessories into statement pieces.
For an ensemble that is simple but chic, look to this Fashionista as an inspiration. She demonstrates that by establishing an underlying template, virtually any aspect of an outfit can be emphasized, even a small detail of a garment.
