Shoulder-padded, that is! I seriously can remember the days of sneaking up to my room, scissors in hand, right before Easter Sunday church service and quickly cutting out the hideous shoulder pads that rocked every frock in the 80's/early 90's! Well, they are back...but I think I like them this go-round! They give all women a very feminine look and really, well, bring out their shoulders. The look was seen on the Fall 2007 Runway as seen below...and have since made an obvious second appearance for Spring 2008. Are they here to stay? I can't be sure, but I'm positive you would get some serious attention if you sported a frock with BIG SHOULDERS. Or, you can buy these and put them under anything! I honestly think I'll be doing this...it's only a matter of time before the Olsen sisters have HUGE shoulders off-setting their tiny frames!
