Wearing The Shoulder Pad / Padded Shoulder Look

Shoulder pads or padded shoulders on any look will help to make a statement. Shoulder pads/padded shoulders help to make a person look a bit taller and also is a great way to add a little something extra to a look without adding any sort of accessories.

Shoulder pads/padded shoulders were huge back in the days circa 1960s, 70s and 80s. They have a retro /old school vibe to it. But it doesn't have to look and feel like something from back in the day. You can make the padded shoulder/shoulder pad look feel more modern by how you dress it up or down.

The shoulder pad/padded shoulder look can also have a masculine feel to it. But you can soften up the look and make it feel feminine by pairing a nice stiletto, or shoe boot or even flat shoe or sneaker with lets say a padded shoulder dress, blazer, or coat or jacket. Any piece of clothing that has a padded shoulder can be paired with anything you want and like.
