STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Stud Muffin

This week’s Fashionista shows us how to look stylish and comfortable for a long day of classes with her edgy, city-slick style. She based her outfit around a basic pair of black leggings and a cozy grey hoodie, while using accessories to style her look. It was those slouchy, studded, boots that caught my attention!

For a long time, the thought of studs brought visions of bedazzlers and motorcycles gloves to mind; but, lately I’ve seen how modern and sexy a little metal embellishment can be.

Studded pieces can be used to juxtapose a feminine girly outfit with a more masculine, edgy feel. Or it can even add more edge to basic layering pieces, like this Fashionista did. Layer a studded leather jacket over a floral top or tuck a soft blouse into a studded skirt.

To find the studded lace-up boots seen on this Fashionista, visit Juicy Couture. Both Dr. Martens and Debenhams have studded options for different budgets. Leave the top few holes unlaced for a relaxed look, like this Fashionista. Tuck leggings or skinny jeans into the boots, or match with a pair of sheer black tights layered over a dress.

If you’re the creative type, try a D.I.Y project and add studs to an article of clothing you already own to re-purpose an old jacket or pair of jeans.

Being right in the middle of midterm season means fashion often falls behind studying, sleep and sanity. On hectic mornings, throw on a studded accessory to instantly add style to your look!

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Stud Muffin

This Fashionista dawns two trends that have hit the fashion spreads and city streets in spades: studs and shoulder pads. This simple, elegant dress is transformed into an edgy and swanky piece with the help of studded shoulder pads and a low-cut back. Bold enough for nightwear yet conservative enough for going to class, this dress provides the best of both worlds for the college Fashionista. These subtle but crucial touches certainly make this dress a unique piece complete with some of the most prominent trends of the season.

Style On,
