Studs and spikes reappeared on the fashion scene a few years ago and is a trend looking to stay around for a few more seasons. Everything that could be studded, has been - from hats to jackets to shoes. Studs can transform an outfit or item of clothing from feminine to punk and can toughen up even the prettiest floral dress.
It's easy to find studded and spiked items on the high street, but the addition of studs to an otherwise plain piece of clothing often pushes the price up. However, if you buy your own studs and are willing to invest a small amount of time, you can stud several of your own items for just a fraction of the cost.
You can get studs online for as little as £5 for 50 which is enough to stud a fair few items of clothing. They mostly come with two rivets on the back so all you need to do is push the stud through the fabric and you're done!
