This Spring Shoe Trend Is the Perfect Amount of Extra

Want an easy way to toughen up your look for spring? Or perhaps add some oomph to your average pair of shoes? Think: Studs. They don't need to be super over-the-top or border on costume-y but the trend is an of-the-moment way to add just a touch of extra to any ensemble. And you can look to the runways of Tom Ford, Balmain, Coach, and Versace (just to name a few) for proof.

If you're ready to give it a try, first choose an approach—anything from a singular detail to a heavy metal touch. Then use your studded shoes to add an unexpected twist on a traditional seasonal look, such as with a floral dress or your most lived-in pair of light wash jeans. It's as simple as that.

Now keep scrolling to shop the trend.
