If you do not have or are not ready for something bold, there are plenty of ways to fake it. Fake body jewelry is an option especially with the sheer clothing trend taking off again, but this time many fashion icons like Rihanna are showing off their piercings as accessories as well. Nothing right now is as popular or as polarizing as the nipple. If you chose not to pierce yours it is no problem and you do not have to purchase fake jewelry to get in on it either. The new pierced clothing trend that’s all the rage on Instagram now will help you swim with the current as far as fashion trends go.
With a growing popularity on Instagram, Life in Perfect Disorder is a New York based brand of clothing that offers an on trend version for those who do not have the tolerance or stomach for actual nipple piercings. On their website they offer pierced crop tops, tees, swimsuits and hoodies that range in price from $60 to $100, but the trend is rising and taking on a life of its own.
Many different fashion pieces from accessories to clothes are taking on the pierced trend, and you can to. Here are five pieces to help you flawlessly conquer the pierced fashion trend.
1. MUGLER Piercing Embellished T-Shirt
This black cotton-jersey T-shirt is embellished with a single ring piercing located where left nipple would be. The piercing is done so that the single silver ring is ‘pierced’ through two eyelets for a bold statement that will not mess up the shirt. Grab yours at Net-A-Porter!
2. J.W. ANDERSON Pierce Medium Shoulder Bag
As shoulder bags go, the best features are usually the amount of storage space, while in this leather shoulder bag the eye-catching pierce feature is a gold metal ring that is centered on the front flap. You can get yours at Matches Fashion!
The gold tone ring ‘pierced’ through two cut-out circles matches beautifully well with the Mahogany brown, smooth leather outside and the inside is lined with taupe suede lining. Wearing this bag, it is a great way to dress up your look, while remaining on an edgy trend.
3. KENDALL + KYLIE Pierced Cropped Top
This simple, basic pierced cropped top is sleeveless and comes in red and white. The back has a full length, exposed zipper, while the sides feature 3 barbell style piercings that go up from the hem of the shirt and stop beneath the bust. It is an interesting addition on the most basic of accessories, the white tee. You can get yours at Saks Fifth Avenue.
4. Balenciaga Studded Leather Derby Flats
The Balenciaga leather Derby flat is fun and edgy with several vampy barbell styled pins in place of laces and a buckle at the ankle. From all angles these shoes are interesting, but they are also an undeniable statement piece, especially when it comes to wearing the pierced fashion trend. They would look great with cropped pants or long pants, even with a pair of shorts. Grab a pair at Neiman Marcus!
5. Eclectic Blue Pierced Retro Loafers
The rich blue material of these pierced shoes is accented by a bell-ended hoop as an off center accent. These are dressy casual shoes that help seal a great look together and can be purchased at W Concept!
