I’m calling them side panels for lack of a better term. And this trend, my friends, is huge. So if you think of a better term, tell me.
So! Side panels were all over fall runways.
Side panels appeared along sleeves at Bill Blass, Missoni, A.L.C., and BCBG Max Azria:
Down the length of pants at Celine, A.L.C., 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Christopher Kane:
And cutting into sides of dresses at Bottega Veneta, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Rag & Bone, and Victoria Beckham:
I don’t know if I should rock the side panel sleeves because of my broad shoulders, but the dresses are supremely doable, since they—as I’m sure you’ve already noticed on many celebrities—are very slimming. And the tuxedo pants remind me of high school, so I want to wear them solely for that reason.
So who’s already wearing this trend, and who’s planning to shop for it?
