Later, in the 1940s, shoulder pads would be associated with men's clothing and the cut of wartime uniforms.

Finally, with the fashion of the 80s, they will be a real success with the fairer sex. The Power Shoulder is the hallmark of the eighties years . A fashion trend that empowers women. Volume, colors, and stylized designer shoulders for ultra-trendy shouldered looks in this decade.
