Studded Shorts & Studded Sneakers

We shot these footage final weekend, after the final snowfall was began to soften away. I do know I might sound a bit odd sporting shorts in a snowy backdrop, however I promise I used to be suitably layered up! I picked up these beautiful studded shorts within the Asos sale a couple of month in the past in anticipation of Spring. However… as you’ll be able to inform from the images we’re nonetheless ready right here!

I couldn’t preserve ready for hotter temperatures to type up these beauties, so I made a decision to layer up a winter outfit… in March (insert eye roll right here). It’s one other one in all my ‘secret layer’ specials – there’s a thermal high below my foremost high, and sheer tights below the fishnets. Add on some cosy knits on high of that (and a coat that isn’t pictured, ha), and I managed to tug collectively a vaguely warming outfit styled round my new shorts!

When placing collectively this outfit I discovered that my new studded sole boots matched completely with the shorts. I’m such a magpie for studded items, I’ve acquired so many spiked and embellished objects gathered in my wardrobe! Typically they could be a bit a lot paired collectively however the boots are simply adequately subtle to go along with the assertion shorts!

Do you will have any gildings or design elements that draw you to items clothes? For me it’s positively studs and chains!Olivia Emily styles up statement studded shorts for colder temperatures with cosy overknee socks and an oversized top


I’m additionally loving the oversized-ness of this high – it’s good for my secret layering, but in addition appears cute with a tee layered excessive! Plus I am keen on the super-cute ‘sweater paws’ look – particularly as my arms are so lengthy that I by no means normally get them, haha (curse my lengthy proportions!)
