Business Skants-ual

On a recent lunch trip in Pittsburgh’s Strip District, I spotted Emily, an Assistant to Marketing at a fashionable online boutique, shopping for fresh fruit at Right By Nature. Wearing a pair of bright green, business casual skants, she mentioned that with a tight economy, it’s important to make the most of your wardrobe. With this particular ensemble, she wanted to add a pop of color and length to her button-down dress, and succeeded in doing so with one of her favorite button-down cardigans! Seeing her style was so refreshing!

What do you think of Emily’s style? I just ‘skant’ get enough!

  2. Sarah 04/01/2010 at 2:08 pm #

    Im confused! Is that a green shirt she’s wearing & the sleeves are used as pant legs? I don’t like th stuff hanging down between her legs @ all.

    April Fools’…right? RIGHT??? Please let me be right.

  4. Kimberly 04/01/2010 at 2:08 pm #

    Woohoo april fools!? 😀

  5. Ashley 04/01/2010 at 2:09 pm #

    OMG…I hate it. I don’t like “skants” at all. Wow…
    The top is cute and I love the belt but the rest of that has got 2 go.

  6. Billie 04/01/2010 at 2:10 pm #

    this has to be an April Fools joke…. has to….

  7. Candee 04/01/2010 at 2:11 pm #

    Yeah…April Fools…I hope so. What is a Skant supposed to be? Looks like an over sized diaper or something.

  8. Nicole 04/01/2010 at 2:12 pm #

    Wow!!! Who in their right minds wakes up and decides ‘I’m going to wear a cardigan as pants today’? This has got to be a joke.

  9. Joana 04/01/2010 at 2:16 pm #

    April Fools’!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Linnea 04/01/2010 at 2:20 pm #

    This is clearly an april fools joke.. Although it brings back memories of a late drunken evening when my friend Benjamin decided to put on a large knitted sweater upside-down, as pants, with suspenders to keep it all on his body.. Little did he know that he was going to be such a trendsetter!

  11. Christine (ModCloth) 04/01/2010 at 2:20 pm #

    Lookin fierce Emily! 😀

  12. Brandi 04/01/2010 at 2:23 pm #

    yuck! that “skant” is atrocious.

  13. Veronica 04/01/2010 at 2:28 pm #

    I hope this is an April Fools joke too, but I’ve seen these a lot on etsy (through!

  14. Jessica 04/01/2010 at 2:32 pm #

    for one that looks terrible, two you’re stretching out your cardigan, so are you really getting the most out of your wardrobe? i really hope this is April Fools.

  15. Kristen 04/01/2010 at 2:33 pm #

    To many things going on at once for me. I love the belt though! Maybe get read of the skant (whatever that is) and replace with black tights.

  16. Maggie (ModCloth) 04/01/2010 at 2:36 pm #

    Awesome picture, Emily!

  17. Aire (ModCloth) 04/01/2010 at 2:37 pm #

    Emily looks amazing!!! I think I need to meet with her to get more skants ideas!!

  18. maddy 04/01/2010 at 2:38 pm #

    April fools or not I have seen people pull off skanting (somewhat…) but this is not how! And not only that….her whole outfit just doesn’t work. At all. Must be a prank…

  19. Natalie B. (ModCloth) 04/01/2010 at 2:41 pm #

    I think Emily looks fantastic! She’s rocking the business-casual skants! I’ve seen a few fashionable ladies downtown in collared, button-front skants – more of a “corporate skants” look, but still just as hot.

  20. nabz 04/01/2010 at 2:43 pm #

    what’s that hanging? :S it’s a nice look but i’m not liking the skants thing…

  21. marie 04/01/2010 at 3:07 pm #

    retrospect MC HAMMER day!

  22. Claressa 04/01/2010 at 3:07 pm #

  24. Judy 04/01/2010 at 3:30 pm #

  28. Brooke 04/01/2010 at 5:11 pm #

    Ewww…skants cannot be real. Please, tell me this is all an elaborate hoax.

  29. nastu1 04/01/2010 at 5:16 pm #

    This is so Grey Gardens. Great April Fools joke.

  30. RedRuth 04/01/2010 at 5:56 pm #

  31. Kit 04/01/2010 at 6:36 pm #
