So many fashionable trends are hitting the market right now and I cannot believe that I am going to say this but…SHOULDER PADS ARE IN. This 80s ensemble has definitely made a mark in the fashion world especially with many esteemed fashion designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Stella McCartney. During the 80s (when shoulder pads were certainly on the rise) they were seen as a sense of empowerment for women worldwide, providing both height and stature.

While also influenced by a sense of fashionable masculinity, shoulder pads began to instil a sense of strength as they mean business. This trend has diversified in so many ways over the past forty decades; shoulders pads first started appearing in coats, jackets and blouses then moved on to dresses and evening gowns.

They have been designed to suit your own individual style. If you are looking for a somewhat casual look you can purchase an over sized blazer, if you want to try something more daring you can opt for a low cut mini dress or if you just want to enter the workforce and hit the ground running than might I suggest the perfect black and white suit, shoulder pads can come in any style so the options are completely endless.

If you want to feel more confident in the clothes you wear then shoulder pads are the perfect solution. They provide you with extra padding on your shoulders therefore physically elevating your stature and composition. That way you look confident so you will feel confident.
