Panelled dresses are one of this season's hottest trends, spotted on numerous A-listers, and an absolute favourite of Team LBD. Not only do the cleverly positioned prints, sections and inserts, in different colours and fabrics such as lace and leather, instantly give a feel of luxury designer style, but these panel dresses are incredibly flattering too. Their structured shape and cleverly sectioned prints and inserts, make them a fantastic alternative, or indeed accompaniment, to high-street and designer favourite, the body-con dress. They are also great for injecting colour and texture to your black dresses and evening wear. Karen Millen is a fantastic place to start for cinched-in waists and luxurious satin appliqué panelling, which can be dressed down for the office and seriously glammed up for night-time. At London Fashion Week, designers like Jonathan Saunders worked the panel dress trend into their shows and Antonio Beradi ticked two trend boxes with lace panelling on his lovely vintage-inspired pieces. This is a great trend for mixing up colours and textures as seen in Markus Lupfer's latest collection, which is sequin-heavy and features a number of panel pieces with graphic prints imposed on modest cuts and elude to a more feminine silhouette. Jonathan Saunders has been going panel-crazy too but with a more reserved colour palette and more outrageous tropical print covered panels. Check out Reiss and Ted Baker too for panel dresses and skirts that work as a great part of your work-to-evening outfit and don't need any fussy accessories, just chunky shoes and matte black tights. Team LBD think Markus Lupfer's black number is the perfect versatile panel dress for every LBD lover to splurge on. Whichever style of panel dressyou opt for, it's sure to place you on the fashion map and have you feeling pulled and stretched in all the right places for an ultra-feminine and flattering look.
