It kind of depends on how you're planning on attaching these shelves to the wall.  If you're using ordinary standards and brackets, then you want to place the standards on the studs, screwing into the studs.

 

 

Many of the closet systems use a top rail that's screwed into the studs (and/or use some kind of hollow wall anchor) and then the standards hang from that.
