I have the fondest memories of shopping my mom’s closet as a young girl. Every time, I’d encounter pieces with shoulder pads, though, I’d cut ’em out. Lol. Today, I love the architectural interest shoulder pads add to basics. My favorite blazers have sharp shoulders. My new favorite black shirtdress has accentuated shoulders. No matter your taste, the shoulder pads trend for fall could add a little pizazz to your style.
What I’m wearing:
Dress | Sandals (now 40% off) | Fedora
Beltshazzar Jewels Necklace (STL designer) | Kendra Scott earrings (on sale)
As you can imagine, the trend for fall is bringing options for every style preference, from subtle to square to over-the-top, voluminous shoulder pads. This basic dress from Zara (also available in blue and tan), which retails for just $25.90, is so simple but stuns because of the sleeveless, shoulder detail.
Sizing? I’m wearing the dress in a size Medium.
To pull the entire look together, I added slide sandals, a fedora, and a long statement necklace. The result is a simple, yet infinitely chic combination. The sharp shoulders are largely responsible for that, of course.
