Disco Pants: American Apparel
So a little while ago (er, about 2 months!) I mentioned that I'd ordered the famous American Apparel Disco Pants. I've literally hardly worn them due to the warm temperature recently, so when it was a bit chillier on Friday I finally got to wear/photograph them. I absolutely love them, they're so comfortable and the material is really flattering. I tried them on in store before ordering online (to get the 15% discount) and having repeatedly read that people tend to downsize with Disco Pants, I tried on the small. I found I actually couldn't get them past my knees! So I opted for the medium! I don't know how people fit in the small, or xsmall?!
I had originally purchased the Glamorous dupes (I literally bought them the morning they announced they were selling them!) for the much more affordable price of £30, but the afternoon after I'd ordered them I got a phonecall saying that they were actually dark charcoal rather than black, as advertised on the website (although they've now updated it). When I received them I found they were grey and the material was much thinner. AA Disco Pants are like trousers, the Glamorous version are definitely more like leggings. Had I not already tried the AA version I probably would have been just as happy with the dupes, but I already had my heart set on the higher quality of the AA ones! So I was a little disappointed and decided to send the Glamorous ones back. I guess it depends on what you're looking for, I think the Glamorous ones are still good for the price! I'm considering getting the Glamorous Disco Shorts now!
Do you like/have Disco Pants? There are numerous dupes on the market now, which ones have you bought? x
