LOOK-ALIKES: Missoni Stripes

Even if you hate the look, just about every fashion-saavy woman knows the signature chevron left by the fashion house, Missoni. Does anyone else remember a couple years ago when Target did a collaboration with Missoni and it was crazy? I didn't purchase anything from that collection, but I heard many stories about how insane people were in the store and how stuff sold out online in a matter of minutes. You may look at the chevron print and find the chaotic colors and busy lines offensive to the eyes, yet Missoni remains one of fashion's most recognized (and sought after) designers. Though it is not necessarily my look, I have to admit there is something worldly and exotic about the chevron.

So in honor of that sentiment, I am doing a special Look-Alikes post in which I feature a couple plus-size-friendly looks that hint at the Missoni flair without breaking the bank. Let's get this show on the road! First, two authentic Missoni garments for reference:

Missoni Zig Zag Knit Skirt,, $1490.00

M Missoni Zig Zag Knit Miniskirt,, $175.00 (Sold Out)

As you can see, the Missoni name doesn't exactly come cheap. But never fear, fellow frugal females! (Trying my hand at alliteration.) I have scouted the web and found a similar look in plus sizes! Keep scanning below...

Merlot Zigzag Tube Skirt, Dorothy Perkins, $28.00

Karen Kane Plus Plus Size Digital Zig Zag Pull On Maxi Skirt, 6PM, $51.99

Anne Klein Plus Zig Zag Print Cowl Neck Top, 6PM, $39.99

As you can see, there are some really good Missoni substitutes for us curvier ladies! The Karen Kane skirt is a particularly spot-on match. But if you want a slightly tamer print, the Dorothy Perkins skirt might be for you. That oxblood color would be perfection for Fall! That's all I got for today - enjoy your sunday!
