Are studs the next big thing?

I spy with my little eye, something beginning with S… Yes guys, STUDS are in. Suddenly these lil guys are popping up all over the place and I am loving the rockstar vibes that they’re bringing! I’m not going to pretend for a second that I wasn’t an absolute grunger in year 8/9 (wasn’t everyone?!) so having more studs in my life is the perfect throwback to my younger days!

Of course, nowadays, studs and a bit of faux leather aren’t just for angst-y teenagers or middle aged bikers.. They’re actually pretty cool. This is definitely one trend that I’m fully embracing!

– SHOP THE BOOTS –
– SHOP THE AVIATOR –
– SHOP THE JEANS –

These studded boots from LOTD are my new favourite pair of shoes. I never usually wear flat boots and I’d forgotten what a difference it makes not to be in heels all day! (The best part is – they’re only £15!!!) I’ve paired them with a gorgeous black aviator with faux fur leopard lining, again from LOTD. I’ve never shopped on LOTD before but the prices are so reasonable and the quality is fantastic – I definitely recommend checking them out next time you fancy an online shop. 

 

– SHOP THE SKIRT –
– SHOP THE TOP –
– SHOP THE HEELS –

The second piece of stud detailing in my life right now is this faux leather studded skirt from PrettyLittleThing. Is it just me that loves having a skirt with a zip?! I’ve gone for a mix of street and feminine with this outfit and I really love it. The frilly heels are so cute and really soften the biker elements of the skirt, and the top adds a bit more of an urban vibe.

 

– SHOP THE DRESS –
– SHOP THE CARDIGAN – 
– SHOP THE HEELS –

– SHOP THE BOOTS-

Of course, two studded items just wasn’t enough for me – so I also opted for this gorgeous bandeau studded dress from Pretty Little Thing and these lovely thigh high boots from LASULA. The dress looks great as a more subtle way to add studs to an outfit, and I loved teaming it with the shaggy knit cardigan. As for the boots, you know I have a thing for thigh-highs and these are just bringing sassy to a whole other level!
