Shouldering the weight of fashion isn’t an easy job. It might be a glamorous, well dressed one, but easy, it is not! Bringing back a trend from the 70’s or even the 80’s might technically sound all well and good but the practicality of it all is quite different.

Let’s take for instance the shoulder pads. Big, over-sized and in your face shoulders were huge back in the 80’s. Coupled with big hair, bigger earrings and colorful eye shadow playing on the lids of most girls it was a combination that current fashion influencers would call a faux pas with all the elements worn together all at once.

Cut to 2017 these big shoulder pads are making a huge comeback but in a subtler more chice manner. Scroll through images from the very recent Spring/Summer’18 collections of most fashion houses and you’ll see that big shoulders are soon going to be everywhere. They are classy, not as dramatic and so very sexy!!
