The padded muscle t-shirts were revived last year thanks to niche trendy brand The Frankie Shop. Shortly after, every brand on the planet followed suit to make bigger, not necessarily always better, but definitely more affordable versions. I’ve taken to the internets to find the best of the best for not only every price point and trendy spin of the muscle tee but every type from short sleeve, to 3/4 quarter sleeve to long sleeve and sweatshirts with that padded shoulder look. If you’ve been itching to try this trend there’s definitely something for everyone. This pink beauty is a spin on the Frankie Shops trendy muscle tee but it’s from Attico and sports a more exaggerated shoulder (with removable shoulder pads) and a longer sleeve length that’s perfect for Fall. I picked this baby up from Farfetch and showcased it in my latest Designer Fall Haul on YouTube. I also got it in white. This is definitely a look I would have worn to New York Fashion Week! Since it’s gone virtual this year, I’ll still be showcasing my fashion looks every Monday here on the blog for the entire month of September so make sure to check in here every Monday for Fashion Week Looks. Oh and every Friday on my Instastories, I’m recapping everything I bought for the week so if you want first dibs make sure you’re following me on Instagram @monroesteele.

What do you all think of the padded shoulder trend making a very overwhelming comeback? Do you think this trend will last? Trends are always cyclical and I’m almost positive it will go out of style only to come back in style in a few more years. For now, I’m loving it and have amassed quite a collection of the muscle tees from the Frankie Shop along with some dupes from Storets and Mango and the updated twist with this Attico t-shirt. Oh and get into the sweatshirt version from H&M before they sell out.
