Shoulder pads are an easy way to add structure and shape to any outfit.

Shoulder pads can elevate any piece in your wardrobe but knowing how to style them can be a struggle. Keep reading as we share the 411 on how to style shoulder pads this season.


Keep It Casual

Back in the day, shoulder pads were exclusively seen in more formal wear such as blazers, coats and dresses but it’s 2021 now and we don’t follow traditions. We’re loving using shoulder pads in our everyday outfits to add some structure and style. Opt for a sleeveless shoulder pad top tucked into comfy knit shorts or matching joggers and take your casual fit to a whole new level.

All About Structure

Mix shoulder pads with other structured pieces for extra impact and make a statement this season. Try pairing a shoulder pad top with tailored faux leather trousers for a look that accentuates your shape in all the right places and will have you feeling like a boss.

Combine two trends and level-up your style game by layering shoulder pad pieces over other items in your wardrobe. Layer a must-have cropped knitted shoulder pad top over a white shirt and jeans to elevate your OOTD or go all out and layer it over a white shirt dress for that signature gossip girl preppy style.
