Think Grease from the 70s and try to recall Olivia Newton-John’s must-have fashion item in the movie. Yes, that’s right – high-waisted, skin-tight, high-shine disco pants. These thick durable lycra pants have recently made a comeback and whether you think they’re a need in your wardrobe or a fashion faux pas, it’s entirely your call. After all, it boils down to how you choose to style these pants.
If you follow popular fashion bloggers online, you would have heard about the much-coveted American Apparel disco pants, which is their best-selling item yet, and sadly, the pants also retail for $85 (RM279). Although American Apparel is highly inaccessible for us Malaysians, we did hunt down something similar for a fraction of the price. You’ll be glad to know that ASOS also stocks its own version of the disco pants and they’re way cheaper (RM152.74)! Still not willing to spend that much? We may have spotted a few pairs at Sg Wang and Berjaya Times Square. Good luck hunting and while you’re at it, here are five different ways to style your own pair of disco pants!
