Fashion Forward with Molly: Embellished Shoulders

It’s all about the shoulders this season and embellishment, as many designers have proven it’s an accessible way to tap into the pronounced shoulder trend this Winter. It offers versatility, functionality and originality.

From feathers to chains and sequins to studs, fancy shoulders are all the rage. Today, embellished shoulders can be found on jackets, tops and dresses. They add a punch to an otherwise simple outfit and act as instant accessory.

Fancy shoulder embellishments and padding can add fashionable flare to just about any outfit. A strong shoulder design can be both dressed up or down. For example:

-   Transform your outfit with an on – trend  trophy jacket like this Balmain style with zip – chain epaulettes and woven zip detail.  

-  If you feel that fancy embellished shoulders are a bit too risky for you, you can always buy the embellishments separately and add them to any item in your wardrobe. These Falconiere’s multi – chain epaulettes exude modern military glamour.  The urban armor can be draped over a plain top but a  strong shouldered silhouette will create a maximum impact.

If you are in love with the embellished shoulder trend but haven’t found the right garment that suits you best, have no fear as finally fashion has given us a wonderful trend that lends itself to an achievable DIY job. With an old garment, a trip to the bead shop or haberdasher and a little time, you can have your own customised embellished shoulders in no time!
