There has been an influx of spikes into fashion over the past year or so. Designers have embraced this new ‘dangerous looking’ trend attaching spiked studs to just about anything.Up until recently I was slightly scared of the studded clothing trend because I was afraid I would accidentally injure myself.
Despite studded spikes being big for fashion followers this year, the trend originally started out in the 1970s. Punks began customising their clothing as a sign of rebellion. Shredding and ripping garments so they would not conform to a typical stereotype. In the 1980s it became increasingly common for street punks to add studs and studded spikes to their clothing. This is said to be because they wanted to look untouchable.
Now the trend is back! This trend is similar to what we are seeing on the high street today. Shoes, bags and accesories, all embellished with spikes and all out to make a statement. And the coolest part about this trend: you don’t have to be a tough girl covered in piercings and tattoos to wear studs and spikes. Studs can be uber-edgy, slightly sweet, casual, or dressy, depending on how you play them.
