When I think of power shoulders, I think of the massive shoulder pads from the 80s, and the show "Golden Girls". Although shoulder pads were used with clothing from the 1930s, it wasn't until the 80s that it really helped to shape and define the fashion of an era.
Known as the era of power dressing, the 80s with its fashion statement - shoulder pads - bestowed the perception of status and position to those who wore them. The power shoulder started to loose its appeal in the 90s as tastes began to change, however, in the 21st century, we have seen a resurgence of shoulder pads. The modern day power shoulder blazer is the edgier version of your go-to boyfriend blazer, and very reminiscent of the 80s.
Whether you are the proud owner of the power shoulder blazer(s) or shudder at the thought of them, there is no denying of their strong visual impact. If you are a bystander like I once was, I hope you will take a chance on it, because there will come that day when we could use an extra bit of "power"!
