The color-blocking trend is still going strong into 2015, and this sweater by Prabal Gurung nails the look. But at $995, there's no question it's a little steep for a knit sweater.

Obviously, the fast fashion world has taken it upon itself to create its own version. An eagle-eyed tipster sent us this one, currently selling for $59.95 at H&M. It's clearly imitating the Prabal sweater, even if it is off the mark: The lines aren't as interesting, there's no olive green patches, and it forgoes the cream for a weird pinky-beige tone.

As the saying goes, you get what you pay for.
