There is one t-shirt silhouette that I keep seeing all over Instagram and have kind of fallen in love with. That silhouette is the shoulder pad sleeveless tee. Majorly oversized with larger-than-life shoulder padding, this t-shirt channels major ’80s vibes, and I’m so here for it. Simple enough to be paired with just about any bottoms, this trend is one that truly anybody can easily incorporate into their wardrobe. Style it with everything from a pair of jeans, to leather culottes, and even sweatpants! The shoulder pad sleeveless tee will effortlessly elevate any outfit, as seen below.

I ordered 3 different high street versions of this tank and there was 1 standout winner: the Shoulder Pad T-Shirt from Mango.
As for the fit, it’s quite oversized so I’d recommend sizing down. Tuck it into your favorite bottoms—I’d opt for something high-waisted— and you’re all set to rock the t-shirt silhouette of the summer!
What do you think of the return of the shoulder pad? Are you into it? Or do you think they should stay in the ’80s where we left them? Sound off in the comments below.
