The Devil Wears Disco Pants

I can’t dance to save my soul; but that most certainly wouldn’t prohibit me from selling it in exchange for American Apparel’s The Disco Pant.

Unlike the typical legwear out and about for the approaching fall season, The Disco Pant is neither legging nor tight; denim or leather. Rather, it’s the most devilishly delicious combination of all of the above. Nylon spandex construction provides a liquid legging like stretchy trouser; while the metal zipper and button closure paired with the fabulously high, deep back pockets add the traits we all know and love, synonymous with the trusty denim lurking within our dresser drawers.

The true tour de force, however, is the fact that, skintight and high-waisted as they are, they manage to nip, tuck, and suck all of the places that we alpha females are most insecure about, procuring a slinky silhouette; while making us stand-out from the crowd in the most wondrous of ways.

Please don’t start with your nonsensical moaning and groaning, kittens. I simply won’t hear of it. Save your ornery proclamations and declarations, broadcasts and decrees for another time and place, they will merit no acknowledgements or attention from yours truly. I simply don’t care if you are under the impression that you are without a place to don these divas – you’re wrong. There is a time and place for every article of clothing, including The Disco Pant.

I’m too good to be true. The perky, girl-next door Sandy Olsson from Grease. But I don’t want to be the goody two-shoe. I long to tease my hair, smear on vampy red lipstick, cover my eyes in smoky shades and hues, and be, at the risk of sounding clichéd…bad to the bone. With The Disco Pant in Black encasing my lower half…no more miss nice girl. Olivia Newton-John, eat your heart out!

It seems a strange combination to hop from an afternoon tour of the Eiffel Tower directly onto a train that leads into a night of dancing and dining about the Cote d’Azur – a place to see and be seen once darkness falls. Even so, I must seize the opportunity to make a lasting impression on the cute French boys; The Disco Pant in Red will make a fiery impact and leave the prize of Paris eating out of my hand.

Scram, vamoose, scat, begone! It doesn’t matter to me how you hightail it out of my wardrobe loathsome Oxford shirts, with your starched bodies and preppy collars, guilelessly get out. I’m sick of the air of stuffiness you seemingly add to all of my ensembles. The morbid bore you’ve so simply transformed me into. But wait…there is one way I can fight you; one thing in my closet you can’t possibly destroy. A white Oxford tucked into The Disco Pant in Midnight Navy. Cherry red tap shoes encasing my tootsies. Serenity, sheer serenity. Oxford shirts…I’ve just ordained you a possibility; thanks to The Disco Pant, that is.

In case you haven’t heard…oui, the devil wears disco pants.


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to American Apparel for the pictures.

La Couturier said...

I do love the disco pants so - especially that black & navy!

But alas I can never wear anything *too* legging-like as pants; they only seem to work for those leggy, uber skinny girls, not those given the hour-glass complete with a bootay (;

bisous,
La C.

Totally Grease!!

Erin said...

You read my mind, I just posted these same pants in my fall wishlist...
now after your post I can't wait to get them. I'm so ordering them tonight :)

Oh how fabulous! And don't worry about your lack of dance skills. I heard that once you put on disco pants you are given the automatic ability to dance like there is no tomorrow. Alas, the magic fades when you take the pants off. But no problem, dancing doesn't look as good without disco pants anyway

lovely post!

Keith said...

So awesome. I think these are fantastic. I can't dance worth a crap. I'm definitely no Travolta in Saturday Night Fever.

miriam said...

that's a pretty daring look, i'd love to pull it off on the dancefloor!

Marian said...

These are so fierce. It looks like it would take me a lot of squeezing to get them on.

I will never use them! I don't have the body... but they are very cool!

All Women Stalker said...

I neither have the courage nor the will to try those on. I love watching girls dance wearing those, though.

A review: The American Apparel Disco Pant is a superb copy of an iconic club wear staple in the 70’s and 80’s. I bought these Xmas 2009 for my 2 adult nieces and the girls wore them to go Clubbing in Las Vegas just days later hitting a number of the top nightclubs. Both of them gave these Disco Pant(s) very enthusiastic thumbs up and found them to be really comfortable too. I’d rate the colors available as Best- Black which is classic, 2nd Midnight Blue is stunning in person, 3rd Charcoal which is a silver grey metallic color, 4th red -bright think Long Beach Grand Prix, and 5th is purple, unusual cool urban look. Made in the USA adds to their value. You can find on line coupons to save at American Apparel.

Exercise your wow power with these so consider them for clubbing, that Vegas trip or just making the guys drool when out shopping. These jean cut pants are made from a rare heavy weight spandex that’s much, much heavier than say leggings. Their heavy weight weave and high quality make them very forgiving of small to moderate body detriments; as this fabric has a great smoothing / slimming effect to produce a super figure for many wearers. The fabric breathes making them cooler and more comfy than most leather, faux leather or PVC jeans. They stretch and give a bit which helps with comfort and allowing one to move easily which is good for dancing or being active. The Disco Pant is washable, use delicates & line dry. All of the colors have a very cool shiny quality that turns up the “Wow Power” of a woman’s figure. It all adds up to great looks. You can put together a wide variety of looks from Festive to Sophisticated to Edgy. Pairing with high heels re-enforces the hot look, while the daring will go with boots. It still is the higher the boot, the greater edginess, but you could go with ankle boots, knee high, over the knee, or even with thigh high boots. At maximum mesmerizing impact, droves of hapless men will come over and babble silly stuff just to talk to you. (Think of the money you’ll save on drinks!)

These are extremely faithful reproductions of the "Shiny Spandex Disco Jeans" with the detail of two pockets on the back side. Shiny Spandex Disco Jeans were originally introduced in the late 1970's quickly becoming a top disco club wear staple. Later in the 1980's the Heavy Metal bands and fans take to these as both stage and club wear also to be seen in film and TV regularly.

I am happy to see them, they are fun, cool and really spicy hot looking, I’d go as far as to say you should really give them a try.

I have to say i love the midnight blue pair, not so keen on the basic black or over the top red, but the blue, yes please!
