If you were too young to enjoy shoulder pads the first go around, you’re in luck because the reworked shoulder pad/structured shoulder seems to be the overarching trend of NY Fashion Week. Coincidence or not, it seems that more than a handful of designers are paying homage to Balenciaga Spring 2008. Thankfully, these new prominent shoulder structures are much more flattering than our mother’s blazers from the 1980s. Fashion statement? Absolutely. But at least you won’t be looking like Tess McGill.
