Fashion bloggers love them.
Celebrities love them.
The Fashion Police... are mostly just perplexed that we can't seem to get through a full day without hearing someone gush about the wonder that is American Apparel's Disco pants: glorified Spandex jeggings, right out of that final scene in Grease.
What is the secret of the disco pants, jurors? Why is everyone so infatuated with them: even people who would ordinarily agree with us that leggings are not pants, and that disco pants are dangerously close to being leggings?
Well, according to the style bloggers who love them (and seriously, a LOT of style bloggers love these things), the disco pants are awesome, precisely because they're NOT like leggings. Nope, according to them, these are thicker, stretchier, and more flattering to the figure, and leave their wearer without the slightest hint of camel toe or VPL. They also like the high waist, which they say has an almost Spanx-like ability to hold you in, and conceal any lumps or bumps.
Are the style bloggers right?
We have no idea. That's why we're asking you.
What do you think of American Apparel's Disco Pants, Fashion Police jurors. Do you agree that they're the greatest thing since Jeffrey Campbell, or are you currently staring at the images above and muttering, "Are those Spandex leggings? Are you kidding me?"
Innocent or guilty: which is it?
