The Year of the Shoulder: Fashion’s Favorite Feature

By  |  0 Comments

Dust off those blazers from the 80s – big shoulders are back!

The shoulder is THE spot to accentuate this year, whether that means baring them in cut out shoulders, or bringing them to life with a cool shoulder detail or shoulder pads.

Everyone can be confident about showing off their shoulders, and that’s why we love this trend. EVERYONE can feel sexy showing a little bit of skin in a classy way. An easy off-the-shoulder top or a cool tee that shows the shoulders can be a simple, sexy way to wear this trend.

Cutouts and cold shoulders were hot last year as well, so fashion had to get a little bit more creative with their ways of focusing on the shoulder. And so, keeping in theme with the 80s revival on the runways recently, shoulder pads are coming back more fierce than ever!

A shoulder pad doesn’t need to be scary! Yes, it’s bold and not for everyone, but a blazer with shoulder pads would look so modern and chic with an easy white tee and a pair of jeans. If you want to try this trend, keep everything else simple so it’s not too overwhelming.

Other bold shoulders that could be seen on the runway or in trend reports include embellished shoulders, big frills or ruffles, and one shoulder numbers.

One last tip: a convertible bra is your best friend when it comes to shirts that expose your shoulders! You can manipulate the straps in multiple ways to ensure they don’t pop out, no matter what kind of style you wear.
