Just because the Costume Institute is putting on “PUNK: From Chaos to Couture” this year doesn’t mean we’re quite ready to commit to head-to-toe ensembles held together by safety pins. We will, however, add a dash of punk with studded belts that make every outfit look more badass. Don’t worry, these aren’t the wide, studded ones you used to get from Hot Topic.
Colorful, skinny belts with partial or all-over studs read more chic and less punk. Strap one over a flowy dress for a cool contrast, or pair it with denim for an understated edge. If you’re still going for the original look with a traditional studded black belt, we’ve got that covered too. Check out our picks, and learn how you can take studs to the next level with a DIY collar in the video below.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
