Zaful Fashion Review: Denim Button-Front Skirt + Black Grid Skirt

I recently received my long-awaited package from Zaful, which contained two items that I listed in my previous Zaful fashion wishlist. So, in today's post I'll be reviewing the two skirts that I chose, including a rose-embroidered button-front denim skirt and grid-print black bodycon skirt. Details after the jump!

The package from Zaful was processed in 2 business days and arrived in about 2 weeks, accurate to Zaful's expected processing and delivery timeframe for their standard shipping. Zaful offers standard and express shipping at varied rates depending on your country; orders over $30 get free standard shipping, while orders over $99 get free express shipping!

My order from Zaful contained a denim button-front skirt with rose patch embroidery and a black grid bodycon Brandy Melville Raquel dupe skirt.

The first of the two skirts that I got from Zaful was a rose-embroidered button-front denim skirt, offered in sizes XS-L.

This a-line light wash denim skirt features silver snap buttons at the front, stitched rose patch embroidery at back, and contrast-wash waistband and front pockets. I've been seeing button-front denim skirts everywhere lately, and couldn't resist trying out this one because of its ultra-unique rose patch and contrasting pockets!

The skirt was a bit wrinkled from delivery, but the wrinkles came out easily. It's constructed from a soft, lightweight denim fabric, with five snap buttons and one hook button at the top to allow for easy wear while keeping it secure.

Style and fit-wise, this skirt is 100% accurate to Zaful's descriptions. I got it in XS, which runs true to the product sizing info, I took a risk when ordering, hoping that it'd run small, but the measurements are exactly as described on the website, which means that the skirt is unfortunately too loose in the waist for me (I pinned it onto me for the photos). I'd definitely say it fits more like a medium, and it's a shame that Zaful doesn't carry this skirt in smaller sizes, because it is absolutely adorable.

Overall this is an amazing piece for the price, and the rose embroidery adds a beautifully feminine touch to the popular button-front skirt trend. I'm devastated by the fact that it's too big on me, because this is without a doubt the most gorgeous denim skirt I've ever seen.

The second skirt that I got was a grid-print black bodycon skirt, sold in sizes M-L.

This form-fitting black skirt features two small slits at the front, a slightly curved hem, a hidden back zip closure, and a minimalistic white grid print. It's constructed from a stretchy cotton/polyester blend for a comfortable, flattering fit.

One of the reasons I picked this skirt was because it's actually a style dupe of the Raquel skirt by Brandy Melville; the Zaful skirt comes with tags that read "Brandy Melove" instead, which I found to be pretty cute and funny.

While the smallest size offered in this skirt was a medium, it actually fits like an XS, with enough stretch to fit an S as well. I didn't expect it to have much stretch, but it's surprisingly comfortable for a piece with a curve-hugging fit.

The thin black-and-white grid is a timeless print, and the small double slits at the hem add a cute touch to this piece. The quality is great, the fit is perfect, and the design looks exactly as expected; I honestly can't find a single thing to complain about with this skirt!

Overall

My first experience ordering with Zaful was very positive overall. Though the denim skirt sadly didn't fit me, I can vouch for their accuracy in describing the measurements and material of their products; as long as you go by their sizing information, there shouldn't be a problem! Both skirts that I got were well-made and reasonably-priced, and I love that Zaful provides free standard shipping as long as your order totals to over $30, though I wouldn't mind if they made their shipping quicker.

In general, this was a pleasant experience with Zaful, and I hope they add more lovely products in the future! Check out my Zaful wishlist here for more of my picks from their site, and thanks for reading!
