Kathie Lee & Hoda: Heavy Metal Trends
From spikes to studs, heavy metal has made it’s way back to cool. Showing off the latest the latest hardware that is sleek, chic and sophisticated, Bobbie Thomas joined Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb to show off some heavy metal trends, including a Studded Awtry Bag, Rock & Republic Embellished Jacket and Zara review.
Heavy Metal Trends: Accessories
Bobbie Thomas said they are not that biker look we are used to. Studs are put on lace and very feminine. She said the easiest way to get on trend is with accessories. Look for something that is in a traditional shape or a neutral color (black, beige, navy) and that balances out the edge. She suggested a Studded Awtry Bag for $50 at Aldo Shoes. Thomas said a studded belt can go a long way or a little stud in the ear can add a pop.
Heavy Metal Trends: Zara Reviews
Bobbie Thomas said this is the epitome of sophisticated studs. She suggested a Studded Collar Blouse and Pants for $79.90-89.90 and Black Pony Stud Flats for $89.90 from Zara. She said this look is really about the classics: those modern pieces that are reinvented. Bobbie said just one of these pieces will update your look.
Heavy Metal Trends: Nine West Review
Bobbie Thomas suggested a Nine West Ruffled Dress for $89.99 from Macys and Leatherock Studded Belt for $39.99 from Annie Sez. Thomas said anyone over 40 wearing this dress could look a little matronly. She said it is a modern twist to a feminine dress. If you put a really bold belt, it really anchors the dress and gives it balance.
Heavy Metal Trends: Rock & Republic Review
For the uber-chic, sophisticated woman, Bobbie Thomas suggested the Rock & Republic Embellished Jacket for $80 from Kohls and Pencil Skirt for $24.95 from H&M. Bobbie said it comes in four colors and is affordable and you can wear it to the office like this or with a t-shirt and jean on the weekend.
