disco pant dupes?









top: topshop
trousers: glamorous*
fur: new look
shoes: very*

Disco Pant Dupe alert! I don't know if you guys remember me mentioning these in the Glamorous A/W Press day post I did a while ago but these have recently been released so Glamorous offered to send me a pair over. Although these are now currently out of stock on their website, I wore them today so I might as well post about them!

I've seen alot of people get Disco Pant Dupes off ebay, which to me look like glorified shiny leggings (although those could be a good dupe for the High Shine Leggings I normally wear). Compared to American Apparel Disco pants, the Glamorous ones are alot thinner, more of a leggings type material. Still very tight but not as stiff as the American Apparel Versions, which could be a plus point depending on how you look at it! They have the same detail on the back pockets and the waistband as the originals so they look like trousers, not just shiny leggings. I don't feel as sucked in or as slim as I do in these compared to the American Apparel. I also think the American Apparel ones are "much blacker" for lack of a better explanation, Although Im not quite sure if I've been sent charcoal or black as it was crossed out on my label! Mine are a size 10, and Im a small in American Apparel Disco Pants.

Overall I do think they are a good dupe, but like alot of dupes not as good as the original. I'm sure the lower price tag would encourage more people to get them, but I am firmly in the camp of Original Disco Pant lovin'. To be honest I'll probably wear these as much as my American Apparel ones, there is essentially nothing wrong with them in terms of getting the same look, but it depends on if you want to splash out on the Originals or not! Hopefully they'll be back in stock soon if you do want to get these!

  2. Ooh, interesting! I've been thinking about getting another colour of disco pants but can't quite bring myself to spend £70, but then what I love most about the originals is the thickness of the material so I might just have to wait for another good second hand pair to come around! You look very lovely, by the way; love the fur!

  6. I have these dupes too. Think they are less black but I love them. I'd no way spend £70 on the real thing!

  7. The AA disco Pants have been in my online shopping basket for ages, I've just never gotten around to buying them. For me, I think I would only buy the originals purely because I'd want them to suck me in and hold their shape as much as possible.... I never know what size to buy though and I don't have an AA near to me so I can go and try them on! These do look good on you though, but they do look more like shiny leggings.

  13. You put this outfit together really well! I sooo want to splash out on the disco pants but I won't have that sort of money to spend on one pair of trousers anytime soon, these do look like a good alternative! x

  15. These are lovely! I agree with you though, I'm too much of a massive fan of the originals, despite the hefty price tag.

  22. Great outfit! The trousers look nice, I have some disco pant dupes in navy from Very and I love them, I've never tried the AA ones though so I don't know what they're like in comparison :) xx

  25. Must say I'm not a disco pant lover, maybe if I was a few stones lighter!! Nice outfit though - although having to wear sleeves and a fur in July is not good...... Good old British summer!!

  26. those pants look super cool. I want some like those

    ReplyDelete
  27. So, I'm confused... are disco pants meant to be used as leggings or trousers? Can you use this one with a short top and show your bum without 'feeling exposed' lol? xx

  28. your hair looks amazing xx

  29. They're gorgeous, AA ones are better than the dupes but the price has to be a factor, we all love a bargain! I'd say they're charcoal, or at least I hope so as if that's black charcoal must be white!

  30. I was hesistating over whether or not to get these trousers or to just save up for the american apparel ones.. this post has really heped that decision.. thank you :)

  31. I think I might be the only person on the planet to no really 'get' Disco Pants, but from the photos these look like pretty good dupes, although they might not feel like it in person. Liking the top :)

  43. Awsome outfit, I love the print knitwear & they are really good dupes (:

    ReplyDelete
  44. I ended up sending mine back, they are no way black and look really grey in pics. I've ordered the blue ones instead, hopefully they are better. Gonna save up for real AA black ones instead!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oooo interesting! Was looking into the disco pants but £70 is a bit steep for me just now so these are a great alternative! I would love a black pair. Your top is really nice too!
