One trend for the fall that I’m both excited for and fearing is the strong shoulder look. Done right, this trend can look feminine, yet powerful and also very modern. Done wrong, I picture this look can swing anywhere from football linebacker to shoulder pad-loving moms stuck in the ‘80s (love you, Mom). But, seriously, this trend is definitely worth trying. You might be surprised by your ability to look good with strong shoulders.
There are many different ways to incorporate this look into an everyday wardrobe. Try a strong-shouldered blazer with a sexy tank underneath, some skin-tight pants and heels. These looks by Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Nina Ricci and Balmain show how strong shouldered looks can be done without looking too over-the-top. Also, a good way to attempt to wear strong shoulders in the late summer months is to pair the look with a dress; let me assure you, this look can be achieved flawlessly, if paired with the right accessories. Try a blazer, a slip dress, mounds of necklaces and chunky heels. You will not be disappointed.
