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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Hahaha oh my sweet goodness. I was trying so hard to squint my eyes, cock my head to the side, blink a few times in order to put my heart and soul into loving this new fad. I came up with nothing. I was so scared. Kudos to you Modcloth. Kudos to you.
