The Look for Less: Michael Kors Sheath Dress

I first saw this Michael Kors Sheath Dress in a magazine ad months ago, and I've been coveting it ever since. Made from a blend of 50 percent wool and 50 percent cashmere, this sleeveless, jumper-style dress (worn here with a turtleneck) just seems like a perfect Fall staple. I love how the scoop neck, front patch pockets, and round-buckled belt combine for an effect that's very 1960s career girl. But the price tag—a whopping $1,995 here—has kept my desire for this dress in check. That's why I was thrilled to discover that one of my favorite cheap and disposable fashion retailers has created a knockoff shirt dress with a very similar vibe for $1,965 less. To see what it is,


It's this Forever 21 Woven Shirt Dress, available for $29.80 here. Despite that fact that it's a shirt dress, not a sheath, I think this khaki, cotton-spandex knockoff gives off a similar mod feel with its round-buckle belt and just-short-enough skirt. What do you guys think?

I love the Michael Kors beetter. The knock-off looks more like safari in satin which is not my type

Ann Taylor Loft has a dress that is far, far, more similar. It's a very good knock off. It was maybe $80 originally, but now it's super on sale.

I just really don't like that color. Guess that is why I did not join the army.

I love the Michael Kors dress, but the shirtdress isn't really giving me the same vibe. It's a shirtdress. The other one is a sheath...they're two totally different ideas.

Very similar, but I wouldn't wear either one anyway.

Definitely a lot of similarities between the two! I really like both dresses. The second is probably more my style, though. Which is good. Because its definitely more my bankroll. :D

Close. But a lot more safari and a bit less chic.
