Autumn is around the corner! And to all the fashionistas out there, you have probably noticed one of fall’s most seen trends this year: metal spiky studs! Leather details mixed with gold or silver tone chains and spikes are taking us into a dark grungy side. Whether you’re the girl-next-door type or an edgier one, studs and spikes made their way into your favourite boutiques and are definitely a must this season.

Studs and spikes on clothes are usually seen on shoulder and collar parts of flowy chiffon blouses, simple tops and knits, vests and jackets, and even on the most feminine kind of dresses.

Studs and spikes also made their statement on shoes! On military boots for a more rock-and-roll look, on loafers and ballet flats for a versatile edgy look and on high-heeled pumps for a sexy bold touch – studs can be on any parts of shoes, booties and boots.

Finally, studs and spikes definitely make a remarkable contrast to your other jewelries, handbags and accessories. Spiky earrings, bracelets and necklaces bring feminism to the next level – the wilder side. Even your favourite types of belts and hair accessories are decorated with those metallic ornaments.

Even though some may adopt this trend right away and some others are more hesitant about it, don’t forget to mix and match! Wearing metallic details from head to toe is definitely a fashion faux pas, unless you have a gothic side in you!
