29 Bizarre Shoulder Looks

From Gilded Battle Fashion to Spock Ear Shoulders

— December 30, 2009 — Fashion
This past year has seen a few fashion reincarnations. One in particular involved the 80s scene. You know, body suits, voluminous hair, shoulder pads. I want to focus on the latter, because I feel that designers were especially interested in taking that area and creating highly bizarre shoulder looks.

I know that it’s important, when working with something that has already been done, to put your own signature on it, but these bizarre shoulder looks are out of this world.
