STYLE: Is this the most flattering fashion trend?


As the editor of Mamamia Shopping, it is my job to translate the world of fashion into English.  So let me put this simply: I may have found the most flattering fashion trend… ever.

I’m talking about panels.

How do panels apply to fashion, you ask? As opposed to, you know, vans? Well, dear readers, the panels to which I refer are the type currently appearing on dresses, pants and tops everywhere. They cleverly follow your curves vertically and play with colour to make you look… Well…awesome. CLEVER.

Need some proof? Check out this gallery of celebs sporting panels:

Kate Winslett has been rocking panels for a while and has worn variations of the trend to several red carpet events. One of her best takes on the trend was a dress by Stella McCartney, which probably costs more than I pay each month in rent, but you can look just as good in one for around $70 from What’s not to love about that?
