Who can wear the shoulder pad trend? If you are already boxy and have broad shoulders, I have one advice for you. SKIP IT! Why look more manly when you can opt for a more flattering cut jacket. This jacket should contour in so that your middle is accentuated a bit. If not, you might end up looking like a box.
To avoid looking so squared and shapeless, Balmain – responsible for the first three looks – paired the jacket with a slim fitting pant or jeans. Basso and Brooke added color and dimension with a cropped pant and platform wedges. Check out the Grace Jones inspired coif on the fourth model. Are you ballsy enough to rock the hair? I haven’t seen this trend on the streets of Washington yet but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that a trendsetter will rock the hair and the shoulder padded jacket.
Kirsten Dunst shows off her ’80s flare in a Band of Outsiders jacket, a rendition of the preppy boy’s blue blazer with gold buttons, and cuffed ankle length khaki pants. This looks is relaxed yet perfect for work or a night out on the town. Just make sure you add a long necklace or pearls to vamp it up a bit.
