Big Shoulders Are Back


I’ve always been lucky that my mom was such a fashionista back in her day. I’ve been especially lucky that my mom saves almost everything in her closet. Her futuristic fashion sense has always surprised me, and I’m always grateful that she saved a piece in her collection that has come back in fashion, just in time for me to wear it now.

One of her favorite styles was big shoulders. The majority of her jackets, blazers, even blouses feature big shoulders and shoulder pads, and now, it seems as if she’s in luck that she’s saved the majority of those styles.

The New York Fashion Week for fall 2013 collections showed that bold shoulders are making a comeback. Proenza Schouler, Lacoste, Rachel Comey, Alexander Wang and Tracy Reese all let big shoulders walk down their runways.

Will you be investing in this style for next fall?
