With the 1990s and 1980s returning to the forefront of style, it’s no surprise that we are increasingly seeing over-the-top embellishment and powerful shoulders. For Spring 2017, the square shoulder has arrived as a must-wear trend, making waves on the runways and the sidewalks. Although this strong retro shoulder isn’t necessarily the ideal look for everyone, it can create a statement if worn correctly. To truly rock the square shoulder in style, stick to fitted pieces and lightweight fabrics. After all, the key is to look contemporary and chic, and leave the dreaded ‘80s puffed sleeve in the past. This season, try bringing this oft-debated look into your present day wardrobe.

Casual Chic

If you’re unsure of how to rock the trend for every day, look no further than the rebellious and menswear inspired look as spotted at Céline. Stick to a colourful printed blouse paired underneath an oversized white blazer, accented with striking square shoulders. Next, add a pair of loose ivory trousers and a black leather envelope clutch for a finishing touch.

Work Wear

For anyone aiming to square their shoulders for Spring 2017, swap your cape coat for a slick black leather trench. The look of statement shoulders can be offset with a pair of fitted thigh-high boots, which help to create a feminine and sophisticated effect.

Evening

Contrary to popular opinion, this fierce shoulder can easily become wearable for the evening hours. Take your cues from the Saint Laurent runway, and slip into a sheer black lace frock with a single square shoulder. The shorter length, transparent fabric and lacy detail all help to balance out this businesslike shoulder for a night on the dance floor.
