A Stud Study
They're Rock'n'roll, and even bad-ass. They give an edge to any outfit, and are perfect to customize old fashioned clothes.
STUDS are a must have this season! You'll see that our members have cleverly found a way to modernize their collar tops, bags, jeans and so on... with studs, the possibilities are endless!

leather jacket from H&M DIY (studs from ebay)
"This was my first ever DIY project that i attempted last winter, and probably my last one too :)
I liked the idea of mixing and matching the gold and silver studs. I use to be a firm believer that gold and silver should not me mixed and now I love it. I really want to stud my converse but I just can't go through the experience again, i simply had no fingers by the end of it."
CLOSED jeans, Silence & Noise at Urban outfitters shirt and Castelbajac heels
These jeans were those of Sarah Jessica Parker in S&TC II, and, we must admit, quite a challenge! Pauline brilliantly gives them a Thelma & Louise vibe, with her bowed denim shirt!
Studs are Rock'n'Roll! Shannon pairs her studded boots with knee high socks, a long tank top worn as a dress, and a hairy sleeveless cardigan.

"I love wearing studs, not really in the hardcore way but in a very subtle touch.
Not long ago I bought a stud machine, and I´ve been crazy adding studs to shoes, vests, jeans and even necklaces.
I love pastel things full with studs, I believe both are a great contrast of styles that melt in one of a kind piece, like my bag, where the studs are also pastel."
Zara grey jeans, Zara studded grey jacket, Handmade slogan t-shirt. (You can find it and all her other creations in her online shop www.abitofshopping.blogspot.com),Chanel logo and drop pendent earrings (gift from my friend)
"I saw this jacket at Zara in Milan, but being not entirely convinced, I decided to not take it. A few days later I came back to take it but it was sold out. At that point, I wanted it absolutely, but no longer able to find it in any store, came to my rescue my dear friend Nadia, who had found it in Dublin and sent it to me!"
H&M dress, customised bra and hairbow
Morgane has studded a piece of clothing no one else here had thought of: her bra! Very cool idea for a sexy shiny outfit!
3 questions to Mc Gallo
Maybe not for everybody, but if you like Punks and the 90's, I think it matches pretty good! It's a good way to bring a little bit of aggressiveness to a romantic girl.
Doc Martens shoes, Monoprix tights, Naf Naf dress, and H&M necklace, headband and belt
Bunny is ecstatic! The stud trend is her best excuse to wear all the studded clothes she cherishes and collected over the years!
Zara Blazer, Zara Grey Acid Wash Jeans, Vintage Sunglasses, and Zara Shirt
"I think whenever I wear something with studs I feel like a bad boy that can do anything without asking any permission. In some strange kind of way, when I wear studs it´s like if another part of me comes out to play, party and have fun." Salvador
