This post is mainly about shoulder pads but also I’m including the military jacket. In the photo, Rihanna is wearing a blue Balmain military jacket with a blue top underneath it, and white shorts. This works well because of the complimentary colors with the blues and theres a nice contrast with the white shorts. One could wear ballet flats or heels with this outfit. The colors in Rihanna’s ensemble are cool colors and stay with blues and whites. Beyonce’s photo shows her wearing a black or very dark blue Balmain military jacket, with a white top underneath and dark blue jeans. The ensemble works well because of the contrast that is created with the white top underneath, the military jacket and dark blue jeans mix well and they go good together with the white top. One could wear heels or ballet flats with this ensemble.
Both these photos include shoulder pads and the shoulder pads really give off a different style compared to a jacket without shoulder pads. Shoulder pads most usually create a more bold approach to an outfit. I really like shoulder pads and think they create a new type of style to an outfit.
