All She Wants to do is Skants, Skants!

Who: Hannah, ModCloth Editor & Fashion Writer/Aspiring Flamingo

What: The world’s coolest skants!

Where: Red, White, & Blue Thrift Store

How Much: $5

When I use it: These are my new favorite formal skants. I wore them last to a huge benefit gala, and they were a huge hit! Everyone loved the gold, star-field-effect beading. Sometimes, when my day needs some jazzing up, I wear them to the office, too!

Shopping Tips: Think outside of the box. Expect the unexpected. And, don’t forget to bring snacks with you! Thrifting can really work up a fearsome appetite. I recommend Swedish meatballs.

    sad thing about the Skants Prank 2010? They really resemble the drop-crotch/harem pant trend that is legitimately fashionable right now. maybe now everyone can see how ridiculous they are, too?

    Thank goodness these posts reminded me of April Fools day, or I would have still been trying to wrap my mind around the fact that these people were actually wearing sweaters on their legs.

    Hahaha! This has got to be the best April Fools fashion joke this year! Along with the ‘Chanel for Target’ joke.

    Gotta love Modcloth!

    doesn’t Audry Hepburn have bangs like that? Also I think that you have your skant on backwards.
