Warm Pins with American Apparel

So after my success with the American Apparel Disco Pant I decided to try out the Ridding Pant as a more casual option. So I just whipped out the camera and thought I'd share the fit with you guys.

These can be worn either as leggings or pants depending on your comfort level. I've been wearing them as leggings to fight the cold here in Melbourne. But I would also team these up with a longer tunic in the warm months. I would not usually wear them with a shorter top but I wanted to show you exactly how they look.

The fit was surprising, for these you should go a size up, my waist is 33 inches and these are a very snug fit on my waist line. I'm wearing a size XL (I wear a L in the disco pant) and they are really comfy. The high waist and thick fabric really holds you in and is so warm for winter. I'm going to wear these with dresses and knee high boots as well, anything that you would usually wear leggings under works.

Riding Pant in Vintage Green - $74.00US

I've given into colour and added a few different shapes of green in this style also. The Vintage mixes with a lot of my summer florals but I'm still searching for a dress or tunic to go with the colour featured bellow.

Now American Apparel have both Australian and US webstores (plus a few more) so click the one that will suit you best. If you live in Melbourne we have a store in Chapel Street. I've listed these items from the US store as I am dealing with that store directly these days. The prices vary from country to country but you must remember shipping on top of the international prices.

The shoes I'm wearing are Jeffrey Campbell Lita's in Distressed Leather - $159.00US and I wear them to death, I need a few more pairs to complete collection.


  1. My parents bought me a pair of black glitter litas for my birthday! So excited!

  2. Yay!!! I'm so happy you got a pair honey, the glitter Lita's are hot I need them in silver.

  3. Hi! I wanted to ask you (since I'm size 14US) if you've tried on or own any American Apparel jean? If so how do they fit you?

    I'm looking for a fitted high waist jean and I came across these ... I'm afraid to buy them since there is no American Apparel store where I live and I generally do not tend to buy jeans from websites since I have big hips and fitting into jeans sometimes is diffcult... Any words of advice? Thank you anyways!

  4. I am so glad I found this post! I was considering getting a pair of riding pants, but was certain that, being a curvy girl, they wouldn't look good. Seeing you wearing these pants and looking so darn great in them gives me the confidence to actually go and try them out! Thanks xx
