Panelo Dress, Dark Purple
An in-store favorite brand for event dressing and office wear, Alquema specializes in pieces done in a silky crinkled woven fabric that travels well and creates a shapely, nonclingy silhouette. Panelo has three-quarter-length sleeves, a scoop neckline and a fit-and-flare shape. A row of fabric-covered buttons marches up the back. Many of our in-store customers opt to wear this forgiving fabric inside out, revealing its shinier side.
- Our model, Tai, is 5'9". She's wearing an Alquema size 0 in these photos, which is roughly the equivalent of a US size XSmall (size 2-4).
- We find that Alquema size 0 works for US sizes 2-6; size 1, for sizes 6-10; and size 2, for sizes 12-16.
