Fashionable Thursday: Power Shoulders
Referring to a very particular style when getting dressed, the powerful appearance it’s offered by wearing tailored jackets, pants and/or skirts, but more importantly because it is the star of this Thursday the shoulder pads. This is actually a very feminist proposal by the feminist community back in the 70’s; challenging the patriarchal society they decided to wear what only men could wear at the time. Then femininity was and continues to be each day embraced as a proposal of strong and secure women whom know what they want. Obviously, this is projected by what they wear and how they wear it. Power Shoulders are just one of the tools for it, offering symmetry, horizontal elongation of the shoulders, strong image and ultimately a woman who knows what she wants and who is not afraid to make it happen for herself. This trend is beautiful, but very powerful and at the end of the day who doesn’t love a great blazer that can take an outfit from the basic, to the most fashionable appearance possible. It does not matter if you decide to wear it with a classic outfit, a casual outfit or more in a street style form; even if you wear it or as a throw on overlay, they will always do the job. If you decide to implement this very chic trend for this season you will be going for a very Balmain or Dior look. That aspect is always a win-win situation, you can look classy and chic in a very effortless way.
Life is short and every day of it counts, give smart use to your clothes. Power Shoulders are not a thing to be worn only occasionally, go for more and take risks. This trend is for everyone and for every occasion you consider necessary. The trend is here, go for it!
