Ok, by now I'm sure you've at least heard the rumors-- the strong shoulder is back for fall. I was in denial for a while. Although I was too young to really enjoy the '80s, I do remember the days when everything from dresses to tee shirts came with shoulder pads. They were everywhere. I'm not too eager to go back to those days. But, the more I investigate this fall's strong shoulder trend, the more I'm impressed and convinced that this isn't going to be an '80s throwback.

This time around the strong shoulder is architectural and sleek, not mannish and dowdy. I think I want to give it a try... and I think I found the perfect strong shoulder starter piece. This brand new Architectural Knit Tunic from ABS Luxury Collection is the simple, straightforward strong shoulder top that is perfect for those of us who are reluctant to return to the days of shoulder pads. This polyester/rayon/spandex knit tunic would look modern with skinny dark jeans, or you could go all the way and pair it with a black pencil skirt and bright patent leather booties. The options are many and varied-- perfect for easing into this standout trend.
