Studded Belts as a new Accessory

Accessories are a great way to try out a trend.  Often you can find cheaper versions of these trendy accessories, which is great because it means you don’t have to invest in something that is likely to be out of style in a few seasons (or less).  One great trend to accessorize with right now is studs, and a great way to accessorize is with a studded belt.  If you think you might like to try out this trend, take a look at this guide to trendy studded belts. 

Overall Look

There are many different options when it comes to studded belts.  The studs could be flat, rounded, or even spiked.  The thing to remember is that each detail is going to give you a slightly different look.  Pointed studs are going to give the toughest vibe – they’ll probably be a little too much if you try to wear them with any other biker or rocker inspired pieces.  Rounded studs, on the other hand, are probably the most versatile.

If you’re worried about your look coming off as too hard, there are a multitude of ways to counteract the effect.  First, remember that the base color of your belt does not have to be black.  A base color of white, grey, or even a bright color will have a much different look than a black studded belt.  Also, by keeping the tone of the rest of your outfit more subtle and classic, your studded belt will be sure to strike a modern vibe.

Price and Quality

The nice part about choosing to go for a trend in a belt is that there are many stylish options that are not especially expensive.  You can get the look you’re going for from a department store item.  The belt does not have to be real leather in order to look nice.  However, you should make sure that the fabric used does seem to be sturdy.  It doesn’t pay to buy something that looks cheap, no matter how inexpensive it is.  Telltale warning signs of poor quality in a belt include splitting or cracking.  The best test is simply to assess whether you think the overall look is nice or cheap.

There are many ways you can wear a studded belt.  They are a simple and chic way to bring a modern touch to any outfit.
