Hey everyone, how are you all today? Hope you’re enjoying the rainy bank holiday weekend weather! It wouldn’t be the same if it wasn’t a wash out would it?!
Even though its raining, its still technically summer, so short-shorts are still a must have!
Today I’ve decided to show you all how I got the vintage, studded short look for a fraction of the price!
I started off with a pair of black, leather style shorts that I’ve had for agessss.
I think I bought them for around £10! But they’ll be even cheaper now denim is the hot must have.
I purchased a bag of 100mm Studs from Ebay, they were an absolute bargain for just 99p & free postage!
I chose this shiny black style to coordinate with the black shorts I was intending on adding them to.
It really couldn’t be easier to put the studs on to your shorts, though on denim it may be a touch tougher.
You simply peirce the fabric with the shorts and push the spikes flat at the back.
I chose to do this on one side of the shorts at the front, and along the back pocket.
The hardest thing I found was lining them up so they’re all straight! Though I wouldn’t really say that it matters too much as when you’re wearing them you can’t tell if they’re a little uneven.
Like I said, they’re all a little uneven but I don’t think it really matters!
Once I’d built up the studs this is what I was left with! It just added that little extra to my outfit and I could’nt have been more pleased.
This is my overall outfit , I teamed the shorts with a cream little cami, girly tights and a girly headband so I didn’t look too ‘rocky’, but I still think the shorts were really effective!
One word of warning though, as you can see, I didn’t cover the back of the studs with any fabric, which severely laddered my tights! I would suggest if you’re planning on following this tutorial, use something to cover the back so you don’t have the same problem I did!!
Hope you like the post! I’m thinking of using the left over studs on a girly backpack to make it a little more stylish, if I do, I’ll post about that too.
