Studded Spring

1. Rocking Balmain in Paris via, 2. Burberry Prorsum Jacket, 3. Valentino bag, 4. Sam Edelman Pumps

Judging by Balmain’s, Burberry’s, and Balenciaga’s (a trifecta of “B” Brands) Spring 2011 collections, studs are here to stay, no matter how many people claimed the trend was dead a few seasons ago.  I am a huge fan of studs and grommets.  In fact, these punk pieces are my favorite type of clothing embellishment.  Even if I don’t wear them often, I am drawn to their ability to give the most classic pieces some street-cred.  Although these toughed up leathers come in a myriad of colors, beige and tan spike-covered pieces make me swoon.  The light color is perfect for Spring and they’ll even be comfortable in the current cool Northeastern climate.  What I really love is how the light, feminine color is contrasted with the studs.  Nothing like a good ole juxtaposition to make my heart flutter.
