We’re talking punk rock-approved grommets, spikes and studs.

Spikes, grommets, and studs in clothing have officially entered their time-to-shine era. Once upon a time these adornments belonged purely to the punks, but in 2023, hardware is here for everyone, no rebellious streak required. From a heavy metal pair of clogs to a punctuated denim jacket, read on for our favourite takes ahead.

Khaite’s thoughtful take on a denim classic is one you won’t soon forget. Washed in the perfect medium blue and achieving that hard-to-find oversized silhouette, this trucker jacket’s true standout feature is the three wraparound rows of silver circles. Studs in clothing never looked so good.

Add this pair of buckled mules to any look — truly anything — and it’ll look like the effort levels were sky high. We love the idea of softening the hard exterior with a pair of woolly socks or amping up the punklike feel with sheer black stockings.
