Skants: half skirt, half pants

skirt pants

“Skirt-like trousers”, says the product description. “Skants”, says The Fashion Police. Because under the same logic which dictates that a sheer dress is a “shress” and sheer pants are “shants”, it stands to reason that skirt-pants must be “skants”.

There’s absolutely nothing else about this garment that stands to reason,¬†unfortunately. Why would you need to look like you were wearing a maxi skirt from the front, but trousers from behind? Why would you pay $777 to do it? We’d love to know…

    And in such a fetching, crinkly, wood-grain fabric!

    This is why someone invented palazzo pants, for an event that is fancy, but trousers are acceptable. Comfy and elegant. Not wrinkly and horrid.
