Boulder Shoulders

The 1980's are calling...

Jackets and dresses with big shoulders were seen in many of the Spring 2020 collections. In the wrong hands, this look is mostly just plain awful but several designers demonstrated precision cutting and draping methods to make the trend seem quite appealing.

I tried to track down a few pieces in knitwear. Stitch construction, yarn choice, and knitting techniques all need to combine to fully realize this trend for sweaters.
