So, were you around in the 1980s? If you were, you probably recall a little show called Dynasty. When you think about the fashion on that program, what comes to mind? Yes, shoulder pads. And…They’re back!
I kid you not. On the runway of 2019 Fall Paris Fashion Week, shoulder pads were all the rage. They’re bigger, they’re better.
Yet, I’m not quite sure how I feel about this one. I like my fabrics to feel natural, and I worry the excess padding will feel and look bulky.
For those who want to give this a try, does it require purchasing multiple blazers or coats? Maybe not. In the 80s, one could purchase shoulder pads to be added under an ensemble to either create or enhance the appearance of the shoulders.
I’ll be on the lookout for those…
