Want an easy way to toughen up your look for spring? Or perhaps add some oomph to your average pair of shoes? Think: Studs. They don't need to be super over-the-top or border on costume-y but the trend is an of-the-moment way to add just a touch of extra to any ensemble. And you can look to the runways of Tom Ford, Balmain, Coach, and Versace (just to name a few) for proof.
If you're ready to give it a try, first choose an approach—anything from a singular detail to a heavy metal touch. Then use your studded shoes to add an unexpected twist on a traditional seasonal look, such as with a floral dress or your most lived-in pair of light wash jeans. It's as simple as that.
