When I first saw photos of people wearing them I was incredibly envious and went on a search only to find the pocket hole burning price they are sold for at £70! No matter how much I love a pair of trousers there is no way I could justify that price on a pair. Even if it was an "investment piece" as described.
Luckily the trend hasn't died down giving a enough time for the cheaper brands to make copies and when I spotted that Glamouros UK had done nearly spot on copies for the less horrific price of 30 quid they were straight on my wish list and I received them as a birthday present from my lovely mum.
It's easy enough for me to say they are my favourite item n my wardrobe now and here are the reasons why.
These pants are made with 90% acrylic and 10% elastane giving the spandex like effect that pulls you in. Taking in the less flattering parts creating slim fitting look. I usually have issues with any type of trouser not fitting properly around my waist and usually having a gaping gap at the back. These literally fit me like a glove and are so comfortable. I can sit in them all day getting chores done and getting a sewing done for my store.
The detailing like the back pockets and front zipper and button make you feel a lot more comfortable in them and make you think of them much more as trousers then just a pair of 'thick leggings'. Slightly cheaper copies of disco pants from other sites such as Missguided don't feature this detailing so even though they are the cheapest version I would feel a lot less comfortable in them.
For the quality of these they are more than worth the price. They come in purple, royal blue, pewter, charcoal, gold and noir. (The pair I am wearing in the photos are charcoal).With winter coming these are the perfect pair of trousers for going out everyday or for the evening accompanied with a pendulum top and lots of jewellery.
You can purchase these Disco Pant dupes here and take a look at the Disco Shorts that I might be getting my hands on very soon. Sorry paypal account!
I am a size 8 but I would recommend ordering one size up. I received a size 10 and it's fits perfectly. My actual size 8 would have been too small.
So what do you think? Would you rather spend a large sum of money on the real thing or getter a cheaper and still good enough quality version?
