Despite my love of grunge and rock & roll, I’m not really into dressing in studs, black leather, and gothic lace, (much to the chagrin of most of Chictopia, I’m sure). Most of all, I was adamantly opposed to the studding craze that’s still going strong. Still, every trend evolves with time, and the silver pyramids that were ubiquitous a year ago have evolved into subtler circular studs that I must admit I love.
I don’t know how to explain, but these studs are subtler and more feminine than their square pyramid counterparts and are thus much more in line with my aesthetic. From shoes and headbands to dresses and jewelry, a generous sprinkle of these circular studs makes anything look a little edgy but also a little sweet—like metallic polka dots, perhaps!
