more disco pant dupes







top: vintage shop (similar here)
disco pants: own the runway*
coat: topshop (old)
shoes: primark (SO old, infact read a story about them here)
bracelets: topshop & turkish market stalls
necklace: topshop
bag: ebay

Today I decided to try out another disco pant dupe from Own The Runway. Compared to the Glamourous Disco Pants these are alot blacker, not quite a true black as the Real Disco Pants are. They have the fly and back pocket details, which is signature to the real ones. The Own the Runaway pair are alot stretchier, which is much less forgiving on the figure and makes them not as "sucky in-y" as others. The material is more shiny, but sort of coated shiny rather than the spandex shiny they other two. They actually remind me of PU style leggings with a fly and back pocket. Overall I do like these, they aren't disco pants though more like shiny leggings trousers-ish things! I dunno Im terrible at explaining! I did think they would be exactly the same as the Glamourous ones but they are alot different (I think anyway!). I'd go for the Glamourous ones over these personally, even though Im not a huge fan of the colour of the Glamourous ones!

Im still not sold on any of the Disco Pant Duplicates I've seen so far, The real still win for me!

  2. I think i'm going to save up and get a pair of the AA ones. The dupes just aren't doing it for me! But you look wicked girl :)

  3. I bought the Very disco pant dupes and really like them, theyre really black but also stretchy! Not sure how alike to the real ones they are though, i dont think theyre quite as flattering although i havent actually tried the AA ones! I love blue cross bracelet!x

  5. I really would love a pair of American Apparel Disco pants so better start saving if the dupes dont quite cut it. Love your bag and your shoes are so cute!!

  6. Thank you for the review! Really want a pair of disco pants, but don't want to pay as much as the American Apparel ones! It's nice to know there are alternatives for a fraction of the price!

  8. These ones look more plasticy? Not sure if that's the right word, haha. Though it seems that nothing can quite compare with the AA originals :)

  10. I'm still not sure about disco pants. I do not own a pair - and I don't think I'll get one in the near future. I like them in outfits like yours here...but mostly I just think they look stupid.

  14. What I find interesting is that both the dupes say to go for one size up, but AA disco pants say go a size down..

  15. I went into riverisland today and they do a really good dupe for AA disco pants for £30, although i would recommend trying them on first! Sizing i found was a bit odd :L xx

  22. After having the aa disco pants and selling them, i tried the glmaourous ones and loved them so much more but after one wear the elastic came out in them and stitching came undone. Ive read a lot of other peoples views on them and they all seem to have the same problem! I think I may have a look at the river island ones or just give up! x

  25. I definitely want to try some on in AA to see if they really do suck you in! Then might have to buy the Very or Glamorous ones to save the pennies!

  26. I really want to try some disco pants but I'm just not brave enough :( all of the reviews I've seen on the dupes haven't been overly impressed. I think sometimes it's better to just pay for quality :)

  29. Think I'm going to have to just splash out on aa ones next time I see a voucher code. I tried the new River Island ones that a lot of people are mentioning - had to take them back after one wear because the seams split at the side of one leg? They're good but seem a bit weak and the fly flap bit goes really baggy and over elasticised :/

  45. I was looking back at some of your older posts (2010) and I was struck by how pretty you looked! Not that you don't now but I feel the pale choice of you lipstick you always go for seems to wash you out a lot and in my opinion, is quite ageing.

  52. Could you please try the Ark Clothing disco pant dupes by any chance? They're the only brand I've seen (apart from American Apparel) that do a size small enough to fit me, and I'd love to see how they fare? xx

  53. Love your top! And although the Disco pants aren't as good as the real ones I really like how you put them together, you look lovely! xx

  57. The Glamourous navy and grey ones are nice on but their black ones are a weird colour. Its not very black at all and looks a bit manky on. I can see why a lot of people are looking for alternatives to the AA ones as 75 pounds is a bit pricy for what they are. Have you tried the Boohoo ones?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Are these the high shine or just the shiny ones?:) on the quest to find the perfect disco pants! You look fab btw :) x

    ReplyDelete
  59. i own the real AA disco pants in black size M - and ive had them about 4 months now - the elastic has come out in unsightly crotch areas - like in the trousers you wore in high school and the crotch / bum areas have thinned out as such . i wouldnt buy the real ones - they feel well made but the material is not built to last . i paid £70 to be sat in me room colouring in my disco pants with permanent marker - fandabydosie

  60. Im sure if I hadn't bought A A Disco Pants before the dupes would be fine but I like the fact the AA ones are thicker as they're more like trousers than leggings.

    Defo going to have to re invest due to the elastic coming loose on mine though. Thanks for all the dupe reviews.
