At Refinery29, we've been eyeing the customer favorite for a while. But it wasn't until November that Madewell dropped the Harlow in a new satin confection, available in black and brown colors, we decided to test the pants first hand. In December, we wanted to see if satin, a staple of holiday and evening wear, could become a daytime staple.
In the new year, we put the style to the test once again after the brand released the fan favorite in a new Curvy cut. Of course, we had to compare the original to the hourglass figure-friendly fit (available in black, acorn brown, and forest green) to see if the Harlow pants are as versatile as reviewers claim. Forward, our thoughts.
