Look for Less: Theory Colorblock Dress

I keep noticing these amazing colorblock dresses by Theory, and I guess I'm not the only one: Forever 21 has a colorblock dress (above right) that looks a lot like Theory's "Whitika" dress (above left). Depending on the strength of your budget (or your willpower), either dress would make a great addition to your wardrobe. Create a simple yet sexy look for that holiday office party by pairing your colorblock frock with black tights, heels—like these spectator booties from Charlotte Russe ($26.99)—and a chic cover-up—like this knit shrug from Forever 21 ($17.80). Add your favorite accessories and you'll be the best-dressed girl in the room. What do you think?

Less on right: Forever 21 Colorblock Dress, $22.80

Nothing escapes F21 - they just love to go there everytime. LOL.

Glad to see both dresses are affordable - I would splurge on the designer one though just for the quality alone. My new F21 cardigan's button fell off just yesterday - the minute I put it on too! I have the worst luck!

I agree. $88.50 is totally worth it for the quality of the designer dress. If you wear it enough, it pays for itself. Gotta love cost per wear!
