Shoulder Pads Are Back – How To Wear Big Shoulder Trend pad After a really long time of big 70’s trend in fashion. Finally, it seems to be going down and the 80’s and 90’s are coming strong. To be honest, I am not a huge fans of this era and a total 70’s girl but at the same time feel exciting about new things and new collections. I guess if I could be happy with just one or few styles in my life then I wouldn’t study fashion to start with.
We all know one of the biggest trend in this era is big and wide shoulder silhouette. It is probably not the most welcomed trend in fashion for most people. It is masculine and hard to pull off. But as a girl with huge shoulder myself, I am actually really used of it. I am basically carrying “shoulder pads” on my actual shoulder bones everyday! I used to hate it but probably have learnt a few things about how to look good with them.

How to Wear Shoulder Pads (Big Shoulder) Trend:

Keep it loose with neat everything else


Emphasis the waistline to give a contrasted silhouette



Cropped top, heels up


Simple colours and patterns

You can see from all the outfits I made above. Of course these are just my personal preference. I am sure some people will look fabulous head to toe all crazy 80’s & 90’s with lots of prints and colours.

Below are photos of me in one of the outfits. And I personally think big shoulder trend actually can be chic and smart.

Let me know how you think about this trend and I am again running late for an appointment. Going to watch a friend doing coffee commercial today. 🙂  x pad pad pad pad pad pad

    Love the tie detail on your sweater and your bag! I go through phases with big shoulders. I have a cardigan with feather-like details on the shoulders that I used to wear almost every day for a few years and now I barely wear it. I can’t explain it lol.

      This shoulder pad style is never really my thing actually. My shoulder is huge! shoulder pads actually stand out like pads on hockey player haha But I do have few items I really like with clear shoulder pads. this sweater is one of them and a yellow blazer from Vennesa Bruno which is actually perfect for this coming season. 🙂

    I really love your look. And the sweater is awesome. I wore shoulder pads in the 80s already. But nowadays I haven’t yet.

      I would love to see your 80’s fashion! I really admire people can pull off that big shoulder bright blocking colour style.
