Studded Flats: These shoes have attitude! If you love slipping on simple flats for daily wear but want to add a little oomphto the look, this is the perfect solution. Our contributor Raquel of Horses and Heelsis here with a simple DIY studded flats tutorial that can be done to any color flat you want. Here’s what Raquel has to say: “Studded shoes are so fun, but sometimes they can look a bit too edgy or overdone, especially on a pair of heels. But studded flats have just a bit of edge and are an easy DIY. When you cant find something you like, you make it! I picked up a pair of tan suede flats from Old Navy and decided to add a few studs to make them pop. You can DIY any pair of flats with studs, a few supplies, and some creativity. Studding is relatively easy and this is a fun weekend or rainy day project. (via Best Friends for Frosting)
