You know all about strong shoulder looks from the 1930’s and 1980s, but we bet you’re wondering how to wear strong shoulders now. The good news is that it’s hard to get wrong this time around. Whew! Since vintage clothing and retro looks are currently trending, wearing an ’80s blazer with big shoulder pads is just as stylish as wearing an updated contemporary piece.

You’ll also see shoulder pads added to sleeveless button-ups, sweatshirts, and sweaters. And of course, a shoulder-padded blazer should be a piece found in every closet.
