One of the most iconic trends of the 1980s returns. Take a chance to try it on to look stunning.
In terms of fashion, the 80s provided great freedom in the way women dressed with designs that bordered on extravagance. Currently, one of the most iconic trends of that decade is being resumed: shoulder pads, those pads that raised a feeling of supremacy in women. They return in blazers, blouses, dresses, vests and coats (for those who travel to cold destinations).
If we talk about styling, perhaps the shoulder pads do not favor all body types (some fashions only come to enhance a particular area of the body or give a different figure to those regularly marked). If you wear them too big, high and exaggerated, they will always widen your upper body; However, there are different thicknesses and lengths, so not all of them will disproportionate your body. Take note!
Worn in a thin to medium thickness, the shoulder pads will make you look slim and with character, as this garment gives structure to the body and elevates your image.
If you have wide hips, wearing a piece with shoulder pads that also marks your waist will provide balance to the width of the hips with the shoulders.
Females with dropped shoulders can appear squarer in the upper area of the shoulders by wearing shoulder pads. This trick will get them out of the sad, depressed and even depressed projection that they may be giving with that posture.
The pads will also add elegance to your executive looks. For your meetings, try wearing a simple blouse or dress with this detail with which you will say without words ‘here I am!’
Short collars. If this is your case, be sure to try the ones that only give a straighter structure to the shoulders, but do not add volume. Also, make sure that the garment has a V neck that elongates your neck towards the chest and does not cut it.
For the most fashionistas this trend is ideal, since they tend to opt for those striking, dramatic and creative details to break with the everyday of a look.
Dressed in shoulder pads: Where do shoulder pads come from?
The use of dresses with shoulder pads and specifically, shoulder pads in clothing, is one of the most talked about trends this year. Shoulder pads are back from the 80s to give your looks a special touch.
