Never would I have imagined some years ago, that this legendary cult-worth 80s symbol, the padded T-shirt, would make such a huge comeback to the fashion world. And not only to the fashion world but to my wardrobe, as well. I tried it and I can say one thing for sure: It’s super flattering. Shoulders play an important role in the silhouette. Giving some structure and some power to your shoulders has such an impact on your entire body form. Wider shoulders mean instantly a slimmer waist. Not to mention the extra style points.
THE PADDED SHOULDERS

Padded shoulders are everywhere right now, from T-shirts to tank tops and from blazers to long-sleeve tops. But especially padded T-shirts, are currently very much in demand with some of them being sold out and having waitlists, so if you find your size available, grab it. Otherwise, you can always find some extra shoulder pads to use with your regular T-shirts and tops.
Next fashion stop: skorts. This is what happens when a skirt meets a pair of shorts and they fall in love. Very attractive, plus extremely comfortable to wear -what more to ask?- skorts give many styling possibilities. Leather is, of course, my all-time favorite, but also a spring trend, so these leather skorts seemed to be a perfect choice.
THE OVER-THE-KNEE SUEDE BOOTS
I am not very much fond of tights, therefore for spring, when nights get a bit warmer, over-the-knee boots are the best solution to leave your tights at home. These are made of green suede and they look so good texturewise and colorwise combined with black leather.
THE OVERSIZED CLUTCH
To finish the outfit off, I paired it with a beige clutch. We are all well aware of 2019’s most iconic bag, Bottega Veneta’s Pouch Clutch. But if you don’t want yet a bag to cost you an arm and a leg, there are some other less pricey and still very cute oversized pouch-clutches linked below. Chain jewelry is still a must and my favorite to wear, but this year I am also looking at more chunky pieces since they make such a statement.
