Let's Wrap It Up: Shoulder to Shoulder

Stop stuffing your bras and start stuffing your shoulders! Seriously, the shapely shoulder is taking over. In the 80's it was a power thing. Women suited up in their version of sports gear to get through the battlefield of the new work world. The shoulders of now are a bit more refined and even softer, but still symbolically aggressive. Here's a sampling:

Balenciaga's beautiful round-shouldered jackets.

Balmain's padded rocker chic.

See Maison Martin Margiela's shoulders? Right there beneath the giant Afro puffs?

Need some bulk? Here's where to pick up some perfect padding. Happy stuffing!
