I am a major fan of a dress with black paneling on the side, like Alexia Echevarria’s black and red dress on tonight’s Real Housewives of Miami. The black side panels give create a slimming illusion, and it’s a great style that flatters almost everyone and makes a woman look instantly sophisticated. While I prefer my side panel dresses in black and white or nude and black, Alexis brought a little red hot Miami flavor to hers tonight and showed us how to work the trend with a bright color. No matter how you wear it, it’s a must have trend for A/W 2012. And for once, I don’t even have a cute little joke to make.

I’m a former fashion industry professional turned style consultant with a slight celeb obsession, and it all came together back in 2009 when I found Dina Manzo’s Alice & Olivia Ombre Rostte Dress was something I could have in my closet and noticed that Patti Stanger wore Express. I’m from Detroit and even though I live in Chicago now, don’t mess with me . Happy reading.
