Studs and spikes are everywhere these days! After I saw a picture of Rihanna wearing a spiked denim jacket, my distressed denim shorts became insanely jealous. You can purchase your studs online (try studsandspikes.com, Etsy, or Ebay). They come in many shapes and sizes and are relatively inexpensive for a small pack.Now let me warn you – it is not as easy as it looks. My poor little thumbs! You’ll see what I mean, but if I can do it, you can do it! I tried to use a flat head screwdriver to bend the prongs down, but it was NOT easier. The second prong is more difficult to bend down than the first, and for most of them, I had to push down on the head of the stud against a hard surface to completely fold the prong down. Once you are all done though, you can wipe the sweat off your face, and be certain that you have the cutest, edgiest shorts at your neighborhood BBQ.
