So as you know, one of the latest trends is/was studs. Now, if you are like me, you would be weary of such a trend. If your style of clothing isn’t the rock chick sort of style, you might find that this trend doesn’t really apply to you, and there is nothing wrong with that. However, I find that if you buy less “permanent” pieces from a trend which you are still not sure about, you will not 1. break the bank, 2. waste money if you do not wear it. By less permanent, I mean buying a top instead of a jacket. Buying a pair of flats instead of say, an aztec print pair of paints. Pants and jackets are the sort of things which you would want to get a lot of use out of, while a top can be styled in many different ways, layered and so on.
I didn’t really go into this trend at all. I just happened to have bought a studded handbag from Primark a while back (when the trend wasn’t really in) but that’s it. I was talking to my boyfriend’s sister this week about this stud fixation… and I got wondering to how one can keep it subtle and yet be in style. This is what I came up with…
I’d say, start small with some accessories first:
Then maybe go for a rather plain top and if you are feeling adventurous, a pair of shoes:
If you find that you like the trend… go a little bit further, a shirt, a pair of shorts…
And if you just can’t get enough, THEN get a jacket!
