Fall is the best season for Fashion for so many reasons that go beyond just layering. The scarves, the big coats, the over-sized knits and carry-alls, and of course the boots! And this season is no exception; we've seen fantastic leather, rich blacks, brilliant furs, and bold metallics dominate the Runways this year in celebration of Fall. But now there's just a little extra; studs.
Studs are an accent I like to think of as a pseudo-classic. They aren't classic in the traditional sense, as in an eternal style. They are classic as a modern accessory; as in they are multi-seasonal, and can be worn subtly with sophistication, or excessively with explosive flair. They are a fantastic and easy way to add metallic texture and colour to any outfit - whether to create a punk edge or just add an unusual sense of glamour. They are also remarkably easy to use for Do-It-Yourself projects; typically sold in bulk quite cheaply, and can be applied to everything from hats, to shoes, to pockets, and collars (just in case you need to go easy on the wallet). And they just happen to be perfectly complimentary to everything Fall Fashion is famous for; including animal print, fur, and rich leather.
Studs have quickly become a Fall must-have this season, and have graced the leather of almost every High Fashion name from Burberry to Balmain. Add dimensional flair to your outfit this season and invest in #StudLove!
