Winter Warm Up #4

February 9, 2010

Studs are the Jason Voorhees of fashion.  Every time you think the trend is dead and gone, it comes back to life.

Like here

When done right, studs can take a piece to the next level, adding another dimension to the most mundane items. Their rejuvenating power makes them the perfect addition to a tired wardrobe, and my fourth Winter Warm Up pick.

I’m particularly fond of this belt from J.Crew.

$36.50

Skinny belts, studs, and studded skinny belts are not novel concepts.  But far too often excessive studding reads as, “ooh look at me I’m trying so hard to be edgy.” However, this iteration feels particularly inspired, especially the use of bright pink instead of  the standard black or brown. (The belt comes in those colors too.) It’s the perfect pop to perk up a dreary day or a dreary outfit.
