Anna (陳蕾㐿) is a 20 years old student who was attending the Taipei In Style fashion fair, where I met her.
She was wearing a black fringed and studded T-shirt with sheer, a black shawl over denim shorts, and white sandals with heels, from the site TheGirlWho. Her complements were a black hat, a black studded handbag and a big necklace also from TheGirlWho.
Jessica is 27 years old and works as a graphic designer. She was walking with a friend (who will also star a post soon) around the Zhongshan area, full of cute shops and restaurants.
She was wearing a beige blazer over a dress with floral print, white socks, and pastel pink shoes. Her complements were a bow in her hair, and a studded handbag of Winnie Mouse.
Chiao is 28 years old and she is a fashion designer. I met her when she was with her friend Ling (who also starred a post here) around Zhongxiao Dunhua.
Chiao was wearing a black coat over a black dress with white collar, black tights, and studded black boots from Asos. Her complements were a silver necklace, a black umbrella and a black handbag.
Stephanie was with her friend Oscar, who also starred a post here, at the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park.
She was wearing a long black jumpsuit, and studded high heels, which Stephanie bought in the street. Her complements were some necklaces, a big bracelet, a black watch, sunglasses, and a black Chanel handbag.
I am collaborating with the Spanish Yuanfang Magazine. As they use Spanish, here you have another of my articles for them translated into English. You can read the Spanish version here. I hope you like it! 🙂
There are many ways to “decorate” the fabrics, but one of the latest trends in this field that I have seen in Taiwan, but also in Spain, in other countries and in online retailers, is the studded fashion.
Before, wearing studs was associated with a punk aesthetic, but they have lost exclusivity and people of all styles wears garments with studs. Any piece acquires a rebel touch and the whole outfit changes completely.
And studs are added to any type of clothing. The most common are studded shoes and handbags, but you can also see on shirts, belts, etc.
I especially do not like them very much, because since I’m a little goofy, I think I would end up hurting myself for sure. And there are flattened studs, but there are others that sting like needles!
What do you think? Do you like this trend? Do you have any studded pieces?
