- Do you ever wish those big shouldered outfits we wore in the 80’s were back in style? All that padding was great for giving you an hourglass shape, and boy, did broad shoulders make you look powerful!
If you have small shoulders and would love them to look broader, then here are 5 ways to get the bold shoulder look without having to go back to Dynasty days.
Strategically draped fabric creates shoulder emphasis.
2. Bateau Neckline
A wide, narrow bateau neckline adds width to narrow shoulders.
3. Cowl Neckline
The sweeping neckline and extra bulk on this cowl neck sweater creates the illusion of wide shoulders.
4. Military Details
Military jackets make shoulders stand at attention. Square shoulders signal authority.
5. Cinched Waist
The thinner your waist looks, the broader your shoulders look. Short or cap sleeves also emphasize the shoulders.
