Animal Print

Leopard and studs go together like milk and cookies. A row of spikes elevates an awesome leopard print jacket, making it incredibly awesome.

Metal Design

Typically studs come in a row, but a cool, unique design like this cross adds extra visual interest to a pair of black denim shorts.

Arm Candy

Golden studs and spikes look so pretty when paired with bright pops of purple and pink. Stack a bunch of neon bracelets for a studded arm party.

Edgy Chic

Studs and spikes look totally unexpected on a pair of coral heels. Pair with chunky silver and gold jewelry -- but keep the rest of your outfit simple, by wearing something like a gray maxi dress.

Strictly Professional

A crisp, buttoned up oxford is very office appropriate, but a studded gold collar adds a dash of punk. Pair with silver nails to work the mixed metallic look.
