Trendy Tuesday -- 80's Revival

The fashion industry revisits the 80's with this growing trend of SHOULDER PADS. Designers, such as Dolce Gabbana, Gucci and even Forever 21, are adding more and more cloth to shoulders in their pieces. The exaggerated shoulders in blazers, military jackets and dresses are seen a lot more today...
I personally adore the structure in a tailored jacket with bold shoulders with a cinched waist belt.. I feel like it shows accentuate the right curves of a woman.
I like this, as some would say "dated" look, but like most trends it might just be gone in a blink of an eye.
