They're everywhere! People who used to implement studs were generally typecast as bad-A, rock 'n roll rebels -- thanks to, well, bad-A, rock 'n roll rebels (Gene Simmons, Joan Jett, Led Zeppelin, and pretty much every band from the 80s). Now those rockers wouldn't be found on my list of "inspirational style," under normal circumstances. But hey, a trend is a trend, and when used sparingly, studs are cute and "so hot right now."
Some of my favorite style blogs have even included this hardware in their recent posts; enjoy!
