Uniskants-y

If you’ve been wondering what the next trend in unisex style is, then I’ve got your answer: skants. Sure, winter is over, but that doesn’t mean you should pack away your sweaters just yet! Skants are an ecologically friendly and unique way to look ahead of the trends and save a few bucks on new pants, leggings, or stockings.

And, because everyone owns a few sweaters, skants can be sported by women and men alike! My fellow fashion writer, Julie, and I got skant-ily clad in matching sweaters to give you a couple of examples of how to rock this new fad.

Here, I belted my skants over a black button up, topped off with a denim jacket. To finish the look, I slipped into my snakeskin shoes and accessorized with a charm necklace.  Meanwhile, Julie kept it real in a printed blouse and T-strap flats.

Will you be sporting skants this season?

    After this amazing post, I don’t see how there could be any nay-skantsers. I’ve got a fever, and the only cure is more skants.

    You guys, this is amazing. “nay-skantsers” made me snort my coffee. Keep it up!

  11. Anna 04/01/2010 at 4:28 pm #

    I hope this is an Aprils Fools joke too. I actually kind of liked that leopard one in a previous post but honestly, no to skants.

  12. Emily 04/01/2010 at 4:40 pm #

    ModCloth gave themselves away completely by posting 3 times about “skants” today… Totally April Fools. Nice try, guys!

  13. Kit 04/01/2010 at 6:40 pm #

    Oh dear! Lindsey, IT IS A APRIP FOOLS DAY JOKE!!!! Don’t stop going to this site!!
    Hahaha, sorry modcloth but it was too ridiculas for me to believe! Happy April Fools Day! Can’t wait till next year ;)

  14. Diana 04/01/2010 at 7:18 pm #

    Oh please tell me this is an April Fool’s joke. Otherwise I will be very frightened. Actually, even if it is a joke, I am still a bit frightened.

  15. Rachel 04/01/2010 at 8:19 pm #

    Touche, I forgot it was April Fools Day and this really made me laugh!! I didn’t realize it was a joke until reading the comments, I just thought you guys were making an absurd and misguided fashion statement!

  16. Shannon 04/01/2010 at 8:20 pm #

    Oh Modcloth, you slay me! :D

  17. Christy 04/01/2010 at 8:29 pm #

    Obviously there are some Regretsy lovers lurking in the works of this blog.

    Excellent.

  18. Maria 04/01/2010 at 9:04 pm #

  19. VictoriaNaomiFisher 04/01/2010 at 9:15 pm #

    Ohsmelord! I hope this is a April fool joke cause slants looks stupid. I love the color and pattern just the way the models are wearing looks dumb

  20. Maria 04/01/2010 at 9:30 pm #

    Psh. I was wearing skants last year WAY before they were cool.

  21. Rachel 04/01/2010 at 9:38 pm #

    Simply Horrifying…

  22. Tara 04/01/2010 at 9:53 pm #

    I never thought I’d see anything more manly than a kilt, and then…behold the man-skants! I may have forgotten to breathe for a moment or two.
