“80s Shoulder Pads Make A Comeback”
Shoulder pads renamed “STRONG SHOULDERS” in 2018
Milan – The Shoulder Pad Is Shaping Up To
Be The Symbol Of The Season
In 1931 designers brought the shoulders to the fashion scene. They weren’t fully accepted until a year later when Joan Crawford appeared in the movie Letty Lyon in a dress with massive shoulders. The shoulder pad revival was really big in the 80’s and early 90’s.
The launch of many fall and winter collections this fall have been showing the return of the 1980’s staple. Big shoulders are on everything from jackets to dresses…..blouses, coats even Tshirts. Big shoulders are actually an elegant and sexy silhouette. It makes you look taller and slimmer.
Paris Fashion week featured shoulder pads by designers from Jacquemus, Saint Laurent, Tom Ford and Gucci. It is a trend that I am so happy to see return. If you want to update some of your favorites in your closet just go online and google “Shoulder Pads”. They are available in all sizes and shapes that fit on your bra strap or with Velcro.
