Steal the Look for Less: Studded Shoes

Studded shoe are a great way to add edge to an over feminine look or a simple outfit. They can easily spice things up. Take for example Fergie and Cameron Diaz sporting their studded pumps with a basic t-shirt and jeans/shorts look. Fergie took hers to a rocker level with a band t-shirt and leather shorts. Meanwhile Brooklyn Decker looks dangerously sexy in her red leather dress...WOWZERS!

Let's be honest we all wish we could afford Christian Louboutin's spiked heels (the Pigalle Spikes 120 studded leather pump goes for $1,095 on Net-a-Porter). Instead of dropping $1,000 how about spending anywhere from $30 to $300 on these kick ass studded shoes.

Stealing Fergie's look is basic: take your favorite band t-shirt and pair them up with leather (or pleather) shorts. If you don't want to come accross to dark either stick with a lighter t-shirt or lighter shorts. If you don't want to do leather there is always the denim cutoffs. Do black studded shoes and black accessories like the R&Em Woodstook Satchel (this is the less expensive handbag line from Rebecca Minkoff exclusively found at Macys). The fun part of this R&Em bag is that it also has studded details that will match your studded shoes, plus it's only $68! Top it all of with a chunky chain necklace like the one from Nordstrom ($58).

If you want to look fierce like Brooklyn Decker then look no further then the little red dress. Red is the color of love and pure sexiness so why not put a little danger into it by pairing it up with spiked heels. When doing a red dress go for a lighter color heel like the Urbannog shoe. This has the perfect shade of gray to keep the red from poping. You don't want to do to many dark accesories since you want the red to really stand out. Like Decker do a bunch of strap bracelets with studs on them. My favoriet is the Stackable Skinny Cuff With Gold Dome Studs from lpcollection.com for $25 each. They come in perfect muted colors but dress up your arm. To keep the look from looking to colorful do a simple black clutch like the one from Forever21 ($11).

Spice up a black and white outfit! Instead of doing a simple black top opp for a top with more attitude like the one from Nasty Gal ($58). This shirt adds a bit a surprise with the open back slits and a hint of sexiness with it being a bit sheer. Do follow Cameron Diaz and pair it up with white jeans. You can stick with black pumps or to add more flare by doing a bright color shoe like the red Zara flat ($80). This option is also great for the gals that don't like to wear heels. Stick with dark accesories and a black purse.

What do you guys think of this trend? Would you rock the studded shoes?
