Studs aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. I know they’ve been on the fashion scene for awhile now, but they’re still popping up everywhere you look, and for good reason – they’re a simple, slightly edgy way to add some unique flair to a look, in a surprisingly understated way.
If you’re looking for a new, go-to piece you can wear with all your favorite outfits throughout the year, then look no further. This week’s fantastically versatile Goodwill gem is a seriously lucky find for the thrifty shopper, because it can literally be worn with absolutely anything. A brown leather belt is, of course, a staple item in any woman’s wardrobe, but this piece – covered in a shimmering rainbow of metallic studs – adds a bit of edgy glam to your everyday looks without going overboard. The variety of metals used will complement all sorts of different colors and makes this accessory easy to wear on an almost-daily basis. It’s an accessory you’ll go to again and again, and it’ll look fresh every time – a real bargain for the girl looking for a few functional, adaptable, but still fashionable pieces.
Liven up a lovely (but basic) dress. Though obviously you can pair a pretty studded leather belt like this one with nearly anything, but here, I’ve chosen to put it on top of soft, grayish-blue sweater dress that’s perfect for fall. This knee-length staple would look great with a pair of classic leather riding boots, and my fabulous new find – a metallic studded belt with just enough shimmer – instead of a plain brown belt, is an ideal way to energize an otherwise basic ensemble. And because the studs are done in an array of different metals – gold, rose gold, silver, and black – it’s incredibly easy to coordinate an item like this with absolutely any piece of jewelry you might want to wear with it.
