Old Navy Fit Review | Harper vs. Pixie

harper pants // pixie pants

It's no secret that I love Old Navy's Pixie pants. I own over five pairs of them currently and I think I might still have some more in my parent's attic. I love them because they're comfortable, come in fun prints and colors, and probably most important to me, they're flattering. I don't get to say that last statement much.

At the same time I went on my Lands' End binge I picked up two pairs of the Harper pants, mostly out of curiosity. I got them in, tried them on and well...

Here's what Old Navy has to say about these two pairs of pants:

A few more notes:
  • pockets: They're on the sides for the Harper and in front for the Pixie.
  • length: Both are cropped, but both come in a long length which makes them the same length as a regular pair of long pants. 
  • fabric: The fabric on both pants is stretchy, but the fabric on the Harper is smoother, similar to the Eloquii Kady pants. 
To continue from above, the fit is different between the two pants. Despite getting the pants in my normal Old Navy size, the Harper's were too small in the waist while being too big in the hips and seat. I took them off and put on a pair of the Pixies thinking maybe I had gained weight but nope, the Pixies fit just fine. If you're hourglass or pear shaped, you might check out the Harpers.

I've already compared the Pixies to Eloquii's Kady pants. I think the Harper is much closer in style and fit to the Kady with much better pricing. 

I wouldn't have minded sizing up in the Harpers if it weren't for the fact that it would take quite a bit of alterations to get the fit right in the hips.
