The 80s inspired many designers for Fall 2009. So it was no surprise to see the strong shoulder all over the Parisian runways. Some were futuristic, others were knitted and a few were even plastic! I don’t how I’m going to wear this trend come fall but I’m definitely excited to try it.
And if you want inspiration, add Problem Child to your Netflix cue. I just watched the classic last night and the little terror’s mom, Flo (Amy Yasbeck), has some seriously fierce outfits.
