When can I wear shoulder pads? —Bree Gomez via Facebook

Shoulder pads became popular in the '80s and made a comeback 2 years ago, with the likes of Rihanna and Lady Gaga rocking their '80s-style jackets and outfits. Though it isn't on-trend this season, you can still incorporate defined shoulders to your look to keep it up-to-date and stylish. It usually goes well with a semi-formal look or if you want to look more mature. One of the things shoulder pads does is that it highlights your collar bone area, which makes your frame appear smaller. When wearing a top or a blazer with shoulder pads, keep the rest of the details of your outfit sleek and simple.
