Fall 2009 Winter 2010 Trend: Strong Shoulders

Fall 2010 Winter 2011 jackets

While strong shoulders can help you with tasks around the house or traveling with heavy luggage, a strong-shoulder trend with its 1980s roots will help you stay en vogue this fall. Thank God I’m a woman and I can play with my nature. There is no longer a need to utilize boring shoulder exercises as designers give us the ultimate solution – shoulder pads!

Strong shoulders is a totally wearable trend, but I would be careful because shoulder pads create a very Dynasty-style looks.

It is perfect for formal jackets, dresses, blouses and it can be successfully paired with fur, gloves or belts. This classical looks is promoted inter alia by , , or Anne Valérie Hash.

, on the other hand opts for a light version – note that they used tulle instead of shoulder pads that gave the impression of strong shoulders. and had a totally different idea on how to create a strong shoulder of today. It is a very rock-inspired style, reminding me of the shiny spacesuits. I really liked a strong-shouldered bolero by Ungaro worn in a casual style and a geometric yellow dress by Jacobs, probably borrowed from the Star Trek film stage.
