Studs and Spikes

John Marine | 7:31 PM | | |
Fierceness guaranteed when studs or spikes are added to your outfit. They instantly add character to your outfit. Studs can add some "bad girl" character to outfits. Spikes certainly add some edgy and fierce style. Spikes surely add some punk rock style for the edgy girl. This post is a digest of studs and spikes in fashion. Should you females incorporate studs and/or spikes into your wardrobe and looks? That's up to you. This StyleSpace post just takes a general look at studs and spikes.

About the Label: "Details"

The "Details" label relates to certain design touches or styling exercises in fashion. Details relate mostly to minor details in certain garments, as opposed to certain garments themselves.

--- Studs and Spikes ---

Let's get started with a brief look at each item.


fashion studded handbag
^ from: - Studs can instantly give character to any plain garment.

Garments adorned with studs offer an instant kick of character and personality. They can turn any sort of dull outfit into something with personality. Studs can even be applied in a DIY (do it yourself) manner. Metallic studs enhance any kind of clothes or shoes- tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes, sandals, handbags, and the like. Embrace your rock chic with some studs.


fashion spiked pumps
^ from: - Careful- this rose has thorns. This pair of slingback peep-toe Christian Louboutin pumps are all adorned with spikes.

By now, you've probably seen some shoes that have spikes on them. The latest and riskiest styling exercise are spikes. Spikes have become trendy in two different ways- spiked garments and garments adorned with spike studs. Even certain cute headbands and shoes have been fitted with spikes. Basically, spikes are a way of being like the proverbial rose with thorns. Or for the rock star girl, spikes are a way of "don't mess with me." It likely isn't a good idea to kick someone wearing studded shoes whether intentionally or unintentionally. Also, you'll get plenty of attention with spikes... from metal detectors, of course. Some environments won't even allow you to have on spiked garments. And if you scratch your feet or ankles using the shoes you're wearing, that's... not a good idea either. So really, this is risky trend to get involved with.

To be honest, I am not crazy about these spikes and studs, especially the spiked material. No problems with studs. Studs are almost truly fine. I still irk about spiked details.

The material I'm showing here are all various inspirations in regards to studs and spikes. Each blog post featured here is supplemented with a description of each item. Have a look at these to get an idea of each studded, spiked, or studded and spiked outfit.

This post I selected is not exactly a parade of studs and spikes, but more of a girly cute look that still has some personality to it.
