Moving away from the warm and sunny days of early fall to a cooler and windier season, my floral and lace tops begin to make their way to the back of my closet and my inner Rihanna wants nothing more than a flashy studded jacket over my plain jane tanks. Being the accessory of the decade, studs can be a fun addition to any outfit, giving Fashionista’s an opportunity to “spike things up” with their wardrobe. Whether splattered across a black leather jacket or carefully placed along a Chloé clutch, this “biker chic” trend is one that has returned as a fall staple season after season.
Originally seen on rockers of the 80’s and biker chicks of the '90s, this flashy fad has been made mainstream by stars like Alexa Chung and Demi Lovato, and can be found on anything from leggings to skin tight mini’s. Though this trend was made popular by rebellions, it recently has become versatile and dare I say feminine depending on how you chose to show off your studs.
This Fashionista is rocking not only one, but three studded pieces, covering her red-hot ankle boots, black leather jacket and oversized shoulder bag. While three studded pieces may seem a bit overwhelming, she offsets this edgy accessory with a flowy red scarf and a pair of simple blue skinnies. Her ombré hair and soft make up bring her outfit together in a girly yet carefree way.
While they can be found on almost anything this season, the most popular way to rock your studs has been on denim with my personal favorite being on a pair on Christian Louboutin flats.
If you’re hesitant to give this flashy fad a shot, start small by rocking a bag scattered with this shiny metal and slowly work your way up to a full studded outfit as seen on stars like Jessica Biel.
