Back to the 80s with Betsey Johnson’s shoulderpad jacket


Crystal Carrington called, Betsey. She said she wants… actually, to be honest, she DIDN’T say she wants her jacket back. Nope, she said, “What are you thinking, woman? Not even I would wear this now!” Because it’s 2011, not 1983. Do you copy that, Betsey?

(Still love you, though.)

    I’ve always hated shoulderpads, even as a child I would secretly cut them off my mum’s jackets and blouses. This is something I really don’t want to see around again.

      I used to do that too! I would always take the shoulder pads out of my mom’s jackets. However, I do like shoulder pads now when done right. But this jacket just looks cheesy.

    I just don’t understand shoulderpads. They’re not flattering on anyone.

    I believe this kind of jacket is not a copy of 1980s fashion (there are not real shoulderpads, but structured shoulders). It actually tries to copy something much older – like 1880-1890s fashion. But this is fashion, it keeps coming back 🙂

    ’80s shoulder pads weren’t THAT big, were they? Are you sure this isn’t meant to be a joke?
