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!
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.
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.
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!
