DIYDIY: Studded Shorts!

Sometimes it’s easy to get bored with things in our closets, but before you start making a donate pile, consider studding! Studding is such an easy way to spruce up an old item. Almost any item can be studded but the trick is finding the best way to arrange the studs on whatever piece you use. I took this pair of shorts and arranged a pretty pattern of pyramid and heart-shaped studs to give them an edgy look while still keeping the feminine flair.  
 
Materials needed:
  • Various shapes/sizes of studs
  • Clothing item you’d like to stud (cardi, denim cutoffs, booties, etc.)

Here are some more in depth instructions just in case:
  1. Map out your preferred arrangement of studs on the piece you’re studding and take a photo of it. Use the photo as a guide to make sure that you keep the spacing/pattern consistent throughout the piece. 
  2. Press and attach studs according to your guide. Don’t forget to push the prongs in using a flat, hard tool like the end of a screwdriver or the end of a butter knife to make sure that they don’t poke out. 
Don’t be afraid to get really creative with your stud patterns. You don’t even have to limit yourself to standard pyramid studs. Use heart or star-shaped studs to make your piece extra cute or add spikes for a fierce Gaga-esque look.

CelebrityHow Do We Like Our Muffins? Super Studded!

We’re all about rockin’ the studs on our duds, but who doesn’t love to sprinkle a few studmuffins into the mix? And because this summer is all about the superhero blockbuster, I’ve picked a few of the most superb, super-powered studmuffins for your viewing pleasure. So, ogle away! (And, for any comic book afficionados out there, for the sake of super simplicity, this list includes crime fighters, gods, aliens, and any other subcategory of “heroes” we may like to argue against).


The Good Ol’ Boys: They’re hunks. They fight for good, while looking good. Himbos….



Sensitive Genius Type: More substance than your average superhero studmuffin, and more IQ points too (but you wouldn’t like Bruce when he gets angry…).



Billionaire Playboy Genius: Hes got the brain, the brawn, and the big bucks!


Bad Boys: ‘Cause at the end of the day, Magneto is the baddest of the bad, Wolverine is the baddest of the good, and they’re both, hands down, the hunkiest of the hunks.
Now, shall we all go practice our damsel in distress acts?
