Style Advice of the Week

This Fashionista is exhibiting one of my favorite trends this season: STUDS! I love adding touches of metal to unexpected pieces. I know a lot of people who are a little bit hesitant when it comes to the studded clothing trend because they’re afraid they might accidently injure themselves. Trust me when I say that this trend is much more fun than hazardous.

If you tend to shy away from the edgier fashion statements, you can still get on board with this trend. This Fashionista wears a simple pair of black jeans and a black cardigan, but the studs on her flats give her outfit a nice unexpected flair that’s not overwhelming. By adding something as bold as metal spikes to something as girly as ballet flats, she achieves the perfect balance of toughness and femininity.

Studs are on everything these days from shirts to dresses, shoes to bags. All you have to do is go to your favorite brand’s website and type “studded” in the search bar. Of course, a problem that many of us Fashionista’s face is trying to make a fashion statement without breaking the bank. The great thing about this trend is that it’s a perfect D.I.Y project! I personally have added life to an old pair of Converse and went crazy with some studs on a pair of shorts I got from Goodwill. All you have to do is order some hardware from places like Etsy and the possibilities are endless! Happy studding!
