It’s just over 3 weeks now that I last wore disco pants. I hate the feeling. I was doing so well for over 2 months. And it’s just getting hotter and hotter here. This is definitely short-sleeve weather. No jackets for the time being.
Anytime I go out now I wear button-front shirts. I love wearing t-shirts but the last few summers I have stopped wearing them because I felt they make me look larger. So button shirts make me feel I have less weight to hide. However I don’t really like how button shirts look with disco pants. At least not most of the ones I have. You know how these shirts are cut at the bottom to be tucked into pants. And then there are the other ones that are cut straight across with the slits on the side meant to be left untucked. I don’t have many of the latter kind and of the ones I do have I don’t think they look all that great with disco pants. Plus, I prefer wearing dark colors on top due to their slimming characteristics. And you all know about wearing dark colors in the summer.
But there is a shortage of ideal shirts I can wear with disco pants. I’d love to find some affordable, lightweight button shirts in dark colors that are meant for wearing untucked. Black, dark blue, burgundy, dark grey, brown and deep green. Those would be great colors. I have to look around online but this sort of thing can be very difficult to find and searches can take hours upon hours, something I already do plenty of on a daily basis.
So while I may not be wearing disco pants just out and about as I was doing last month, I would still wear them if I were going to the mall I usually go to. Why the mall? I see it as a more formal place than the thrift store. OK, maybe not all the stores in the mall but I am speaking particularly of the department stores. Plus it’s nice and cool in the department stores so you don’t have worry about melting in your spandex disco jeans. However, I would still have to figure out what top to wear. That’s a dilemma not easily resolved at this point.
How about you, readers? Is it really hot where you live? Has summer kicked in full force? Are you going about in disco jeans? Would love to hear your comments. In the meantime I will try to find some shirts for myself.
