Gigi Hadid Wears Shoulder Pads, Giving The 1980's Trend A Much-Needed 2015 Update

It doesn't look like all these #TBT (throwback trends) will be going away anytime soon. Gigi Hadid wore a glam blazer with shoulder pads on Wednesday, and her outfit provided us with a tubular 1980's flashback moment. Only this time, shoulder pants looked oh-so-modern and fabulous. Leave it to Hadid to bring them back in style.

The '80's were a time of big hair, big bows, and big shoulders. And although shoulder pads have pretty much disappeared in the past 30 years (and thank goodness for that, right?), these babies appear to be making a slow and steady comeback. If there's anyone to trust on that, it's Model of the Year Gigi Hadid and her seriously chic structured shoulders. Hadid kept the rest of this look simple and the color palette muted, keeping the focus on her expertly fitted blazer and large-and-in-charge shoulders. I suddenly have some intense regret over snapping all of the shoulder pads out of my mom's old work blazers...

Not all hope is lost though. If you also got a little scissor happy, or just never owned any 1980's-era power pieces to begin with, nab a #TBT-worthy ensemble with any of these shoulder-padded fashions that feature a fresh, 2015 twist. And may your confidence be as high as your shoulders.
