Jillian may have made a big mistake letting Reid go in Hawaii, but at least she looked fabulous doing it. The Bachelorette sported a flowing Diane Von Furstenberg dress that will set you back several hundred dollars. The look is summer perfect, with preppy colors but a wild pattern and long length that make it unique.
To get the look for less, I’ve first found this T-Bags dress available at Neiman Marcus for $212. At about a third of the cost, it has a similar drape and color scheme.
If this is still out of your price range, you can get a similar outfit by pairing a simple orange maxi dress with accessories to tie in the color combination from the original. While the hat makes this outfit a bit too casual for a rose ceremony, I love the tropical-perfection this outfit could bring to a summer day. The fact that the entire outfit from shoes to earrings is less than either of the other options makes it pretty appealing as well.
