I’m going to spend the next few posts on sharing some of the best photos of people–mostly women at this time–wearing disco pants. These photos have all been publicly posted on various websites across the internet so I’m sharing what has already been made available. The owners of the photos retain all their rights.
Some of these might have previously been posted on this blog but oh well. Good things are worth looking at more than once!
So here goes:
Not a great shot, but the fact that there are at least 4 disco pants people makes up for it!
I’m not sure why I like this one so much. Maybe it’s that the disco pants are perfectly tight. That is how to wear them. I’ve seen way too many photos where the individual is wearing them one or two sizes too big. Even American Apparel advises on these pants to size down when in doubt. But getting back to the photo–maybe it’s that the pants have just a very light sheen to them. I love the high shine characteristic of disco pants. And the fact that they can adjust to different sources and intensities of light without ever truly losing any of their quality of shine. Obviously in this photo it was a bright day but there was an indirect lighting situation. Yet a faint shininess can still be seen in both shots. Or maybe it’s that the girl looks like she was made to wear disco pants as they fit her completely perfect, though I don’t like her choice of shoes. But that just goes to show you that disco pants can be worn with any kind of footwear–flip-flops, running sneakers, canvas sneakers, boots, oxfords, sandals, heels–without taking away anything from the amazingness of the pants.
At first I wasn’t sure she was even wearing disco pants. I couldn’t see any back pockets, I wasn’t sure there was a zipper and button and that outer seam looked a little narrow to me and made me think she might just be wearing some spandex leggings. I lightened up the photo a bit and everything was there.
Looking at this photo reminds me that I have yet to return my XL pair to AA in exchange for a L. I think the large will fit so much better than the x-large. The x-large is just ridiculously loose. Should’ve listened to the advice given to me by the AA experts.
More photos to come on next post!
