Luxe for Less - Dolan sequined sweatshirt




Today's "Luxe for Less" features the sequined sweatshirt by Dolan. The drop shoulder style features a  chiffon panel covered with mini amethyst colored sequins. It currently retails for $297 (GASP. A sweatshirt?!) on Shopbop. 
Good thing the shipping is free...



Enter the Michael Stars sweatshirt found on Piperlime for $110. 
This one offers a similar look with the sequined stripes and it's charcoal color easily transitions it from day to night.




This Express sweatshirt is priced at $59.90 and comes in two shades of grey. This is definitely a steal compared to the Dolan!

I can't imagine spending almost $300 on a sweatshirt! I actually like the express version the best, the light grey makes the sequins pop just a bit more. Great round up!

I love the dolman sweater - it always look flattering on any body shape. These prices are crazy though, $200+?!?! The Express one seems like a better option. You should try Old Navy too - I bought one 2 weeks ago for $19.99.

Love the steals :) I could never spend almost $300 on a sweatshirt - sequins or not lol.

I need some sparkles in my life! These are so cute! My budget only allows me to buy the last one in the line, haha ^^ x

@Woreout & @Gameday Stylist - Um, me neither! But I am sure someone has ;)

@Just Tututiny - Old Navy always has great dupes! And you can't beat $20 :)

@Rolled Up Pretty - Exactly! Even if it is something casual, the sequins dress it up enough!

@Nikki - Same here. Good thing the Express one is my favorite one here anyway ;)

What a great find! I cannot wait to get my own!

The Express one is great, considering I could never spend almost $300 on a sweater. That's just insane to me. Still, it is a really sweet sweater, and a good thing the Express one is similar and much cheaper haha. :)

OH man...do you know these sweatshirts were on sale at Loft for dirty cheap????? I mean we're talking like under $15, granted they had lace and I didn't get it. OK...don't laugh but the black lace on gray looked 'hairy' to me.. yup I know. lol
