Style Advice of the Week

This season’s latest obsession is all about the studs! Studded boots, studded collared shirts and studded leggings. And truthfully, as Fashionistas, we just cannot get enough.

This Fashionista sported suede colored booties with silver studs attached to perfectly create her dark “rocker” look. These irresistible studded booties from A’GACI are impeccable for a frat party or a dinner date with the girls. They give any outfit the perfect amount of boldness and make a desirable statement. She paired these three-inch studded kicks rightly so with metallic black leggings from Forever 21 and simple black loose-knitted sweater with arm cut-outs. And to top off the whole daring look, this Fashionista added a thick-knotted headwrap, also from Forever 21. I love how she selected to wear all black, (always a slimming look ladies!) so that there is a mainly one color focus to the wardrobe. With the booties being virtually the only amount of hue to the ensemble, the studded booties truly shine as an audacious piece to her attire. Overall, the patina-studded booties make the outfit trendy and an A-list look.

There is no doubt these fabulous studs are currently the hottest fashion craze. They can be found in your everyday clothing stores such as Forever 21 and H&M.  They can also veer off to high fashion retailers such as Steven Madden and Alexander McQueen. Metal studs were also being featured on a pair of Valentino printed alligator heels in the October Vogue blog.

You can even create your own studded masterpieces by taking a trip to your local craft store and grabbing some squared studs and a glue gun. Then go to town on your neutral or bright colored booties by studding the back of the heel or even the front tip of a stiletto. Nothing beats a good ole DIY with these fashion forward add-ons.
