The Look for Less: London Times Colorblock Dress

London Times at ShopStyle

This London Times cap-sleeve colorblock dress would look smart at the office with a blazer and sexy in the evening worn alone. You could also dress it up for attending a wedding or wear it to a graduation, as the guest or the grad! Though it's not exactly a splurge, this two-in-one dress costs $80 at

Forever 21 at ShopStyle

Here's another version of this colorblocking style featuring the same bold blue hue on top and slimming black on the bottom, except this one's strapless. Save on the look at for a mere $24.80.

I own the F21 strapless version and it's fabulous!

Sushi, is the F21 version long enough for work? Being tall, I've had some problems finding dresses from F21 with office-appropriate lengths. If so, I'm going to grab one asap!

London Times dresses are usually great. Nice frock!

But I think that the lines on the Forever 21 dress look cleaner and I might prefer it. What do you think?

Great dress, I love color blocking but I haven't been able to find a dress that's similar that isn't, well cheap looking. Help!

Love them both! It would be so fun to pair either version with a shrug in another, contrasting color.
