Around this time last year, the Internet was in a flurry as news outlets entered the great debate on whether or not men should wear meggings (leggings for men). Well blogger and knit pattern designer Stephen West of WestKnits has decided to up the anti of lower-body outwear by converting radically patterned sweaters into pants, i.e. “Swants.”
Mock if you want, but Swants look semi-bad ass. We’ll be on the lookout in our local Brooklyn neighborhood as they could could just be the next big hipster trend. Oh, and if you’re brave enough to try one of these statement pieces, West gives you a complete step-by-step guide to making your own pair of Swants on his blog, because “your booty deserves to be as warm as your torso.”
Take a look at these couples rocking Swants for a little design inspiration.
