Should I cut out these shoulder pads?

If you’re anything like me, your first reaction to this question will be YES!

Hear me out.

I bought a pantsuit a couple of weeks ago to wear on interviews. It’s just plain black slacks, perfect length for heels, and a matching jacket. I thought it looked great on, so I bought it. I guess I didn’t realize until I got home that it had shoulder pads, which I thought had been out of fashion for awhile.

Now, I got this from the junior’s section at Kohl’s so, wondering why they’d be selling anything with shoulder pads in 2013 for young women, I googled it to see if shoulder pads were making a comeback and guess what? It seems they are.

They aren’t huge like they used to be, but you can tell they’re there. I just don’t want to feel stupid wearing shoulder pads if no one else is. I thought I’d cut them out, but I’d have to cut the inner lining of the jacket and sew it back up. And I’d risk the shoulders looking funny once the padding is gone. It was a $40 jacket, which is a lot for an unemployed recent college grad.

So, fashionable jellies, have you noticed shoulder pads making a comeback? Do you have any jackets with them? Should I cut these out or just leave them?

Here’s the jacket, but mine is long-sleeved.
