Polka dots and stripes still make a fun statement for the 2012 fall fashion scene. Add a studded handbag and you’ve got a great look. Studs are accenting jackets, pants, accessories and shoes this season,  bringing back the punk/biker retro look of  the 70s and 80s. In 1974 a favorite outfit of mine had studs on the pant seam and matching jacket… it was very cool! Fashion always seems to recycle, incorporating a modern, updated take. Here are a couple of outfits with studded accessories.

Yes – I’m definitely loving this Nine West studded handbag. The plum colored tights coordinate nicely with the dark gold striped Madewell skirt and H&M mittens.

Each of these outfits has a unique flair; it’s a draw as to which is my favorite.  But, I’m leaning toward the second… I really love those tights, and the grey sweater rocks!

So, I’d love to hear from you. Which outfit would you wear? Are you wearing any of the great colorful choices in opaque tights this fall?
