When we crossed over to the 21st century, many speculated that the once prominent 80s shoulder pads were long gone; however, this compilation of shoulder fashions proves otherwise. Not only have they been brought back, but shoulder pads and fashions have also remained on point and with a new attitude. Emphasized pointy shoulders have now become accessorized with chains, jewels and even more height than ever.

Whether it is multi-layered shoulder cuffs or donned with human hair, shoulder fashions have made their footprint into the fashion industry with fierce attitude and jaw-dropping designs.

Thanks to the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna and of course, Lady Gaga, emphasizing shoulder fashions promote an avant-garde sense of style as well as a confident and fearless approach to mainstream fads.
