Studs and Spikes for a Sparkly Edge

Redefine traditional holiday sparkle-wear with shining details that aren’t so sweet. With silver spikes, bronze studs, and metal plated embellishments, a cool hardware piece can up the edge factor of an outfit while still keeping things muted enough to be deemed appropriate holiday attire. The ornamentation on a studded shoulder top subdues the need for that standout piece of jewelry around your neck, while a crazy pair of spiked footwear is the necessary wow factor when paired with a simple, conservative get-up. To ease into the trend, accessorize a holiday outfit with a metal embellished bag, a lustrous detail sure to turn heads.
