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!
