Seven Studded Accessories to Prep Your Punk for the Met Ball

Unless you've been living under an unfashionable rock lately, you'll know that the punk gear that started as an anti-establishment statement in the '70s has now become a popular form of accessory adornment. Studs are having a major moment again thanks to high-fashion houses like Vivienne Westwood as well as Valentino and Burberry Prorsum, who found ways to make punk posh. With this year's Met Gala themed, "Punk: Chaos to Couture," adding a splash of studs to your outfit is now favored by even the faint-of-heart. To recapture your youthful sense of rebellion, try strutting around in Zara's Black and White Studded Sandals or adding some iRony to your iPhone with Rebecca Minkoff's 'Pyramid Stud' case. —Cleo Zancope
