How to wear studded boots?
Studded boots or shoes can change your style depending on what you pair them with.
- Studs can make a perfect match with a feminine style – try to mix a floral print dress with a pair of studded shoes or a belt and go out to steal men’s hearts. They might deny they don’t like such combinations, but they will definitely pay attention and hey that’s the point after all!
- Next idea is a classic rocker style which involves at least a studded leather motorcycle jacket and a pair of studded booties. I have already bought a jacket and a studded belt the next step is to accessorize them with a pair of fine studded boots.
- Recreate a typical 1980’s look and take a heavy dose of inspiration from Madonna. This means strong shoulders, oversized clothes, metallics and of course, studded accessories that add an edgy style to your overall look.
