Kate Bosworth was seen at the 2012 CFDA Fashion Awards in this bold Altuzarra dress from the Fall 2012 collection. Honestly, I love this dress. The crazy pattern is so unique and bold, and I love the side cut out. But let’s be honest. If I walked out of the house in that people would think I was nuts! So I tried to find similar options that are affordable and more wearable! I want to add another thing before I show you what I picked: This dress is so crazy and out there that I couldn’t find any that are extremely similar. But I tried my best to find ones that I would wear that were close enough. Also, personally, I didn’t like her shoes or clutch, so I will not be showing look alikes of them too.
Forever 21, $29.80. This dress is perfect for summer and even into the fall season. Personally, I would belt it similar to how it is belted on the model, and then add some simple rose gold accessories.
If you aren’t quite comfortable to wear a bold patterned dress, try wearing an orange scarf instead! This website has a couple different options that are similar and cute!
This dress is also a good option. It is $47.99 from Modcloth. I love the pattern on this one, and I like how the neckline is cinched with a tie. I think that and the ruffles add a girly touch to this dress! Be careful not to wear any bold colored bags, shoes, or accessories with this dress, because the bold pattern and a bold accessory would be bold overboard!
And if you are a maxi dress kind of gal, I found the perfect orange dress for you! It is almost $80, but since it is from Modcloth we know that it is great quality! I love the floral embroidery and the boho feeling to this dress. It also has a drawstring at the waist to flatter your shape, and would be perfect on that vacation! And don’t forget to add your favorite white sandals now that Memorial Day has past!
