American Apparel Disco Pants - Imperial Purple
I have been so excited to take some fashion photos and write a fashion blog post ever since I finally purchased the American Apparel Disco Pants. I purchased these disco pants in shade Imperial Purple. It is a gorgeous colour and as you can see doesn't appear too loud or bright in an outfit.
These American Apparel Disco Pants might cost £74 but I cannot stress enough how comfortable and stylish they are. They have a slight stretch to them and feel like a cross between leggings and trousers, so I guess we could say these purple disco pants are like treggings.
I have noticed on Tumblr and on the review section of the American Apparel Disco Pants many people are asking 'What size am I for the American Apparel Disco Pants?' and I myself was panicking about the exact same fashion dilemma. Fortunately, in my hometown Bristol there is an American Apparel store located in Cabot Circus so I was able to try these on.
Please bear in mind, this is a petite fashion blog primarily targeted at petites, so this is a representation of how the American Apparel Disco Pants looked on me being just 4ft 11. I cannot recommend them enough for petites as they are so slimming and aren't too long in length. The skinny style of the disco pants also means the length isn't much of an issue and the excess length of the American Apparel disco pants can gather around the ankles. These are also very warm for these winter months and would make ideal party wear for a night out where you didn't want to expose your legs to the cold winter winds.
I purchased the American Apparel Disco Pants in size XS.
It was difficult to decide between XS and XXS.
In Topshop, Miss Selfridge and Dorothy Perkins I am a UK petite size 4, very occasionally a UK petite size 6 depending on the cut or type of clothing. I do find clothes in most shops to be slightly over sized as well perhaps distorting the sizes.
The XXS is supposedly the equivalent to a size 00, they did fit (Yay! Although I wouldn't say I look anything like a size 00... silly height. Ha.) However, one thing crossed my mind, I might need to eat food once in a while during my day, although the size 00 was okay, considering there is a Krispy Kreme Doughnuts on the next floor of the Bristol Cabot Circus shopping centre I might find within minutes I would need to explode out of the XXS disco pants from the excessive amount of doughnuts I inhale.
The XS Disco Pants are the equivalent to a size 0 which would normally be a UK size 4 however, I do believe these would fit a UK size 6 also as there is a bit of give. I find these more comfortable as I have the extra breathing space for when I want to lounge around the house in a fashionable outfit and also have the extra room for food, especially with the stretchy material these disco pants are made of.
Here are some photos I took of my American Apparel Imperial Purple Disco Pants.
There are lots of colours available on the American Apparel website regarding the Disco Pants, however this was the colour I was most drawn to simply as I found the shade Imperial Purple to be gorgeous and very different to anything I already owned. Although after finding how comfortable and amazing these disco pants are I am very tempted to purchase more colours!
