Lusting After: Skants

Kendall Jenner Exhibit A
Kendall Jenner Exhibit B

Call it whatever you want:  skants, apron pants or skirt pants.  Beyonce first did it, then Kendall Jenner followed suit.  Not just once, but twice!  If you're like them (ahem, with unlimited funds) then a simple search will bring you to a number of skants varying from $200+ to a whopping $1000+!  But seeing that this is a trend thing (and I don't exactly have a celebrity budget), I'd like to keep my options cheap.  Cheap ain't easy to find though.  Believe me, I did my research, turned the internet upside down yet failed to find a great pair of skants.  Apparently, the only ones that make skants are high end fashion houses and it hasn't reached high street labels yet!  That, or it's all sold out!  Boo!  BUT, fret not my friend.  This trend is totally self-doable.  Have a pair of slim cut well-fitting pants?  How about a nice wrap or straight cut skirt?  If you said yes to both questions, then slap them both together and voila!  Your very own version of skants!  Possibilities are endless.  You can either put together a printed skirt and solid pants (and vice versa), or put two same-colored solids together.  Better yet, why not do two different solid colors for a nice colorblocking effect?

 Edit:  I've finally found a site that sells decent-priced skants! 
Wrap Trousers from http://www.frontrowshop.com
Leggings with Front Wrap Detail from http://www.frontrowshop.com
Sadly, as of writing, these two styles above has already sold out.  Here's to crossing my fingers and hoping that they'll restock.

No worries though, here is one that's NOT sold out!  And the best part it, it kinda looks like Kendall Jenner's!  (see above photo)
Trousers with Split Skirt from http://www.frontrowshop.com

So what do you think?  Are you going to jump on the skants trend?  I for one am sure that I'll be trying out this trend.  How about you?  To skant or not to skant... that is the question!

PS.  If you should come across any website selling great looking skants at good prices, please do drop me a note or comment on this post!  I have gone cuckoo and need my skants fix ASAP!  xoxo
