It has been such a long time since I have even done a fashion piece so I am really excited for this one! If you’ve been to the mall or any retail location recently you know it is the worst time to go shopping. Summer is over but not every store is fully in fall gear yet. This is really true in Los Angeles when it doesn’t get into fall until like October. So for this post, I am going to show you all one of my favorite transition pieces along with a review from the ever so controversial, Zaful. If you haven’t heard of Zaful yet it is an online shop that based in China and has tons of cheap and trendy pieces. And when I say cheap, I mean cheap.
So let me take you step by step on my experience with Zaful before anything else.
First off if you do ever decide to purchase from them, I do suggest making an account with them. A) because it is better for tracking and B) they do give more coupons if you have an account.
So I opened an account and preceded to order my first item. Since I’ve heard many horror stories about Zaful, I wanted to only order one item to test it out.
I should point out that I did buy everything on my own with my own money. Zaful did not send me these items for a review.
I chose a pair of these high waisted trousers that would be perfect for a summer or fall look.
I also recommend to order through PayPal as it is more secure than putting in your credit card information. If there’s anything to take away from this it’s this : ALWAYS USE PAYPAL.
It did take around 3 weeks for me to get it. So if you are planning to order from there for winter, you should do that right now. Remember it is shipping from China so it is highly unlikely you will receive it quick.
However this was U.S. shipping so it may differ in other countries.
After waiting almost a month for my item, I received it in a nice plastic bag. For this low price, it’s a given the quality won’t be that great. Yet I was surprised at how good the quality came out! Yes the fabric was a bit stiff but it wasn’t scratchy to me at all, it was actually pretty comfortable.
I wouldn’t say I will be ordering non stop but I’ll definitely take a look here before purchasing “trendy” items that’lll only last a season.
So overall I will say my experience was good with Zaful.
SUMMER TO FALL
Now that the review is out of the way, I want to talk a bit about how I actually styled these pants.
These pants could really be styled in any way, but I think they are the best piece to starts out fall. I styled them with a high neck sleeveless top for a warmer day yet can be switched with a long sleeve top.
I think wide leg pants are such a great trendy item that doesn’t need to go out of style.
Baggy sweaters and wide leg pants aren’t exactly my best fit since I am petite. However, if you pull off the baggy look I would 100% go for it.
It’s very easy to tuck in a baggy sweater and wear such a styling street look out.
Finishing my outfit I paired it with some of my favorite black flats and this Calvin Klein cross body satchel. The bag isn’t in stock anymore but any muted color would work great for the fall season. Since this look can really go in either summer or fall, I will go ahead and leave down below some of my outfit suggestions for you.
The most important part in your summer to fall looks is making sure that you will comfortable in the weather. For me in Los Angeles this means wearing a sweater in the morning and taking it off at midday.
That’s why wide leg pants are amazing to me, because they are comfortable but won’t let you freeze or melt.
