The Look for Less: Missoni

Missoni is synonymous with luxurious zig zig knits. Missoni is also an investment piece. I myself only have an itty bitty scarf, but I love it. A couple of years ago the M Missoni line came out, providing the distinctive knits for a slightly less expensive price tag. Alas, anything Missoni is still an investment piece that stands out amongst the crowd. I saw this Missoni
Wavy Stripe Empire Dress
, $1,415, and thought the colors were too muted and the just-below-the-knee-length wasn't the most flattering. I then stumbled upon a look for less that I thought was a cuter and way cheaper alternative.


To see a Missoni look-a-like for way cheaper,

I think this little dress manages to be both nautical and flirty. The hemline is more fun and colors are generally more flattering. It may be considered a knock-off but until that real splurge-worthy Missoni piece comes along, this bebe Zig-Zag Babydoll Shift Dress, $98, will make do.

I definitely like the Missoni better, I don't think the Bebe would be that flattering.

I am not a big fan of Missoni, that zig zag print gets old after awhile.

I agree with bhilb, a Missoni dress is a clasic! I really like the forever 21 dress too

Not a fan of the Bebe dress. The Missoni dress is classic and could probably be worn for years. Wheras the Bebe version is too young (juniors) looking.

I agree with WhiplashGirlchild.. the missoni one's color is a bit better. I feel that the real one can last a couple of seasons..while the knock-off i wont leave my house in.

When my mother and I were in Italy, she bought the cutest pair of Missoni shoes that she WON'T LET ME BORROW. :mob:I like the colors on the Missoni dress much better.

Those dresses are very cute, but I fear the horizontal stripe over emphasizing my hips.

http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=Dresses&product%5Fid=2033480412&Page=all I got this from forever21. The color palette isn't typically missoni but the style and zig zag knit print is. I love it... it's very flattering.
