Cheap Thrill! A Beaded, Bandaged Skirt That Doesn’t Cost You Balmain Bucks

We follow the trends like some people follow the stock market, but when a single piece seems like a repository of all the hot trends of the season (hello, Balmain!), we're a little hesitant to lay down so much money for something that's bound to go the way of the peasant skirt and harem pant of yore. So, we did a little boogie when we spotted this Forever21 beaded mini for only $27.80! Granted, the cheapie version doesn't quite pack the same punch as the original, but who can really tell when you're busting a move on the dancefloor? (Jazzi McG)
