Hey, Stud

I am crazy about the juxtaposition of feminine and edgy. I love how a hardcore accessory can toughen up an otherwise sweet look (or vice versa).

Studs, spikes, grommets, and chains lend an unexpected hint of rebellion when paired with ruffles, bows, and other girly accoutrements. The contrast is effortlessly cool.

Layer your own chains or cheat with these necklaces from DL by Dirty Librarian Chains ($38) and Burberry ($550).

Accent your ears with funky Landver hoops ($400) or leather Wendy Nichol studs ($77).

Throw on a cuff or two to give your outfit attitude… CC Skye Lucite bangles ($125 for a pair), Linea Pelle leather wrap bracelet ($55).

…or slip on a pyramid ring from Forever 21 ($3.80) or Juicy Couture ($88).

Add these pieces to your bad girl repertoire. The result: a darkly romantic and glamorous combination.
