Are shoulder pads coming back?

Are shoulder pads coming back?

Remember shoulder pads? I remember having a closet full of shirts that consisted of them. They used to annoy me because they had a tendacy of sliding every which way, and at any given moment!

 

Have you ever stop to question what the purpose was for shoulder pads? Was it just because we were trying to follow recent fads? Or were we trying to convey a broader look, in hopes of some way appearing more confident?

 

As I think through my memory styles of old, I’m automatically taken to the shirts with the loud colors. I swear 90% of my shoulder-pad apparel was attached to some loud pink, green or orange shirt poly-blend! I do remember the job-friendly bodices or dresses which were usually made of black or white colored rayon and big buttons, I never had any use for them ~I’m an 80’s child~ but I can remember them being a hit on the runways!

 

If recent red-carpet events are any indication (some of the most confident starlets are rocking them), then they are definitely on their way back!!!

They're ba-ack! Shoulder pads, the '80s staple people love to hate, are popping up on the runway - and in Hollywood.
