DISCO…

disco
Leather jacket: Topshop
T-shirt: Primark
’Disco’ leggings: Lookbook store: ebay
Sunglasses: ebay,
Silver neck cuff: H&M
Bag: Zara
Vans authentics

I had been contemplating buying a pair of American Apparel disco pants for a little while (who hasn’t) but aside from the price (a whopping £70) I couldn’t quite decide on a colour. I was torn between black, midnight blue & charcoal. I eventually came to the realisation that spending 70 squids on a pair of trousers was a little steep, especially if I ended up buying the wrong colour, so I went looking for alternatives. Oh hai again ebay! After Ashleigh tweeted that she had bought a pair & that she loved them, I couldn’t resist, I had to try them out for myself.

To start, they come in an array of different colours, I ended up choosing ‘blue grey’ & I’m so glad I did, they are such a lovely colour! They are a very similar material to the AA ones however they don’t have a button fastening & they aren’t as high waisted as actual disco pants but with a cleverly placed belt, that problem is solved. Now for the best news, these babies cost less than £7 & postage was free! I deffo need more of these in my life! I have my eyes on the red & navy blue ones next.

What do you think? Great value, eigh? ;)

  3. These are an amazing alternative, and such a lovely colour. I hate tight things near my bum area though so maybe i'd wear them with a tunic lols.

    I found a way to put two pictures together using html yay! Give me a tweet if you need the codes!

    1. Aahha no worries, they are all one size so you just select how many you want to buy, click buy it now then when you are paying there is a box where you can leave the seller a note, that's where you tell them the colour(s) that you want ^_^ xx

  30. I love your outfits so much and as a student AA disco pants are wayyyy out of my price range so I think I have to buy these ones! one question tough I really worried about the sizing I'm a 6-8 and have rather skinny legs do you think they will be on for me?
