Studded Denim Jacket: How To (well, kinda)

** edited i lost some of the photos off of the site from technical difficulties so some are missing. 🙁

Hello again darlings! Denim jackets have been back for a few years now, but I am usually a little late to the party. I think it’s always good to wait awhile (but not too long) to see if it’s worth buying into a trend. And I also like seeing updates to trends. For example, now studded denim is the thing to do.


I’m always up for a little extra bling in my life so the studs were a happy addition to this classic piece!

As you will see below, this studded denim jacket is already a repeat offender this Fall. It’s so perfect for the chillier mornings and evenings and it’s fun that it has a little glam element to it.

Jacket: thrifted and DIYed like explained below. Similar here. || Shirt: Madison & Berkeley || Jeggings: old, but similar here || Booties: Jessica Simpson || Handbag: Coach, I also like this one that looks like cheetah print and is a great investment piece that you could use all the time!

Shirt: an oldie, but goodie (similar here that I like a lot) || Pants: Vero Moda (I bought these in Sweden and they are my all time favorite pants. When they wear out I’ll be so sad)!

I got the jacket at a thrift store for less than $10 and the iron on studs for 2.99/pack. They have some really cute options there. My favoritesare the lion heads and the flowerish looking studs. However, I couldn’t find them anywhere online so I’m linking other adorable options below.

This was originally going to be a how-to  but after I started making it, I realized that it didn’t need a tutorial as long as you can iron!

So here’s what it looked like half way through. Just be sure to follow the directions on the back of the packets.

 What I did:

1. Stick the studs where you want them, then lay a thin towel over the studs while you iron them on the front for 60 seconds.

2. Then let cool and flip over to the back. Iron for 30 seconds. Don’t iron for too long.

3. Let cool and you’re ready to wear it!

Let me know if you’re gonna try it!
