No surprise here–I did not wear disco pants that day I was considering it. It was just too ridiculously cold and still is. I know there will be more opportunities so no worries.
As I mentioned before, when it’s this cold I cannot even wear my skinniest of skinny jeans. The cold just cuts through the denim. And I can’t wear under amour tights and pull up skintight jeans over them. It just can’t happen, does not look good and does not feel good. The only pants I can wear with this kind of weather are slim jeans (yawn) and fleece pants (louder yawn). Fortunately things start to moderate tomorrow so I can start incorporating the extremely ‘ergonomic’ fitting jeans again.
It’s very nice when you comment on someone’s Lookbook photo and you get a response. I’m convinced most people there are quite narcissistic and only want to get followers, hypes and comments but are not willing to reciprocate. Once in a while you find someone who does comment back. I will say is it seems that people in Europe are most responsive to comments. In the States there’s a yearning for royal celebrity-hood, complete with loyal subjects and a dedicated fanbase.
Anyway, I tried on my large AA disco pants the other day and they really are so nice. I am really grateful to AA because they in essence initiated my foray into spandex disco jeans. While I already did have 3 pairs before AA came up with theirs, none were as good as my first pair from AA. And even though I have bought and sold many of their disco pants, there was nothing wrong with any of them. In most cases I just needed some money and had to part with them, figuring I would in the future get a hold of them again. One pair was that black in XL which was way too big for me but they still would have been fully functional in my wardrobe. Unfortunately, many of the colors I once had I will no longer have a chance to get unless I fish around on ebay for used pairs. And AA currently only has 2 colors to offer on their website. But to anyone who is still on the fence about these pants I say a loud GET THEM! They are the ultimate wardrobe staple. They go with anything and you can wear them virtually anywhere. Don’t let the shininess or the skintightness be a hangup for you. As far as the skintight element goes, you probably already wear skintight pants. So that’s no excuse. Regarding the shininess–yeah, they’re a bit shiny. If it’s a sunny day or you’re in a brightly lit place the pants will shine highly. So what? It’s a little different from the same, plain & boring stuff everyone else is wearing. Not a big deal. The pants stand out. They do make a statement. But the only statement they make is “I look and feel great!” Or are you worried that the pants might not fit your body type? I’ll tell you this: I have never seen anyone look bad in disco pants. No one. Short, tall, skinny, fat. Disco pants makes everyone just look better.
Will 2017 be the final year of AA’s disco pants? I remember writing about this for 2016. Last year came and went and their disco pants are still here, albeit in only 2 colors at the moment. I still see a lot of interest in them on twitter and even Lookbook has new looks once in a while that incorporate the pants. I will say this–if people stop buying them, then yes they will go away. That’s logical. I too plan on buying another few pairs this year. Everything at AA is currently 40% off so you can get the pants for a mere $51.
