If you haven't already made a maxi a wardrobe staple, I'm highly recommending you do. They're the epitome of easy dressing but also amazingly complimentary. I've got one in black that's become a closet favorite, and I set out to find a lighter color in a casual strapless style. When I came across this ultra soft — and ultra sexy — Velvet Slinky Tube Maxi ($129) I couldn't wait to slip it on, until the pricey tag killed my shopping buzz.

Not to be defeated, I found something soft and strapless at a fraction of the cost. When I spied this Asos Shirred Jersey Maxi ($41) I couldn't help but see all the similarities. The same soft gray hue, jersey fabric, and shirred bust line make this a practical look-alike at a much more practical price.
