The simple and neat style outlines and highlights the metal texture on the surrounding of the body perfectly, looking simple but not lack of the stylish sense.

Rivets seem to have always been loved by the fashion world. Either the Hollywood stars or the fashionable people on the streets are obsessed with the complex on the rivets. Rivets are definitely the representatives of the rock street style. The bright and unique rivets decorating on the black leather and a variety of structural innovations are dazzling! The popularity of rivets begun from the 70s of last century. When Ms. Vivienne Westwood knocked the rivets into the motorcycle boots one by one, the rivets boots inspired people’s unlimited imagination. If the rivets boots at that time could be called to shock the whole London, then the rivets high heels now subvert women’s pursuit of high heels again!

No matter the T stage show or the street fashion, the rock declaration of rivets high heels made us have to open eyes wide  to well appreciate this trend element with individual fashion! Without the heavy clothing collocation, the simple slim leggings can fully bring out the characteristics of rivet high heels. Of course in addition to the wildness and uninhibited character, the rivets have a noble and elegant side. For example, the Balmain crystal ornaments high-heeled sandals, Prada rivets decorated high-heeled sandals are all the elegant representatives, the same exciting matching with skirts!

Some people said that the rivet style more seems a kind of Gothic temperament express, like the confrontation against the fear in the dark, the unspeakable grief, while I think this is an alternative performance of passion for life under the dark appearance.
