We thought we’d found the perfect maxi (it comes in 15 colors!), but that was before we laid eyes on these two dresses. They each combine two of the biggest summer trends, maxi dresses (obvi) and nautical stripes, and both ditch the classic horizontal stripe for a trendy chevron pattern. The only major difference between the two is the slightly larger stripes on one and waaaaay larger price tag on the other. Can you guess which maxi is designer and which isn’t?
Answer: The dress on the left is Lulu’s Dreamboat Come True Ivory and Navy Striped Maxi Dress ($54), and the Strapless Striped Gazar Gown ($6,790, currently sold out online) by Oscar de la Renta is on the right. Can you believe the price difference? Now, I think every gal should own a great maxi, but dropping $6K seems a little much when you can get a lookalike for a quarter of the price. Which do you like better? Let us know in the comments below!
