All fashion folk know that the fetish trend has been huge this autumn and winter, but I have seen relatively few people clad in PVC heel-less boots and bone-crunching corsets (thank goodness!) but leather skirts (as expertly modelled by Ashley Tisdale + Miranda Kerr) are a simple way to rock the look. However, my favourite way to add a hint-of-fetish to an outfit is studded accessories.
Of course the ultimate studded accessories hail from Hermes, but we’ve found some gems on the high street of late and River Island is obsessed with spiky shoes – v Sam Edelman-esque. Studded accessories are great for toughening up party frocks and killer spiky shoes are always a winner when teamed with black skinny jeans.
