I suppose designers are trying to assert their authority in these uncertain times, because attitude-inducing studs are appearing pretty much everywhere. I'm certainly not complaining, as I think a little hardware goes a long way on an otherwise bland bag or shoe. Below are some ways to ease into the new trend.
These leather bracelets ($48) can be layered or worn one by one… and the studs are small enough for those not looking to totally stand out.
You can always add a studded belt to your standard black dress, but why not branch out and try an embellished tank dress ($66) instead?
Shoes are an easy way to pull off the trend, and studded gladiators ($150) will work well with just about any warm weather cocktail attire.
