Studs are all the rage these days, but buying a garment or accessory that comes pre-studded also seems to often come with a much higher price tag. If you are looking to save a few bucks without sacrificing style, this easy studded DIY will be right up your alley.

Studded Dress

Supplies: Lulus Exclusive Fair Play Washed Dress, Studs (found here), and flat nose pliers (optional).

Step 1: This dress was a great option for studding as the back panel made for the perfect spot to add some edgy flair. I started with outlining where I wanted my studs to be, and closed them off with flat nose pliers.

Tip: These studs are pretty lightweight, so you could use your fingers to close them off as well, but if you have a fresh manicure- I don’t recommend it!

Step 2: Continue filling in your area with studs, trying to keep them as straight and in line as possible.
