The word “panache” is a noun that is typically used to describe the way a person does something.  It means being really stylish and dashing.  So, when we say someone has panache we mean that they have style and if we say they did something with panache we mean that they did it in a very stylish and perhaps somewhat flamboyant way.   Typical sentences using “panache,” then, will tend to say that someone did something “with panache” or “with great panache.”  For example,

  • The two stars made their entrance down the red carpet with great panache.


  • He served the elegant dinner with panache.

Essentially, you can make any sentence you like simply by saying “X did Y with panache” so long as it is possible that this was done in a stylish and flamboyant way.
