Panel dresses are really hot this year; heck panel everything is pretty hot (there are some leggings out there I want too — and I am not even a legging person). I think the biggest attraction is probably because of the illusion they create in changing the silhouette. I do not see its popularity ending any time soon. Regardless I am quite fond of the style and Evans (worldwide shipping) currently has four graphic maxi dresses with panels on black.
Front Panel Dresses
These first two are panel front dresses only. These are are great way to break up the black dress and add a splash of color or design; especially if you have not been fond of patterns in the past and are starting to experiment with them.
Front and Back Panel
My personal preference is to have a matching front and back panel. Single front panels feel incomplete to me. This first one is my favorite pattern of all four.
I like the high necklines on all these dresses (a nice change from all the deep V’s we have been seeing) and almost matching keyholes in front and back of these two. The prints are interesting without being too boring or obnoxious.
What do you think of the panel look? What pattern do you like the best?
