How To Find an Ideal Floral Dress For Yourself? (Zaful Wish List )

What are the clothing items that you associate with summer? In my case, it's printed dresses. Printed dresses are definitely my 'go to' outfit in summer. You just throw them on and you're ready to go. Printed dresses are quite easy to style. Moreover, with these kind of dresses, often the 'less is more' rule applies. Meaning that accessories are optional because the print creates enough visual interest on its own.  Naturally, you can wear all the accessories with them that you want, but it is entirely your personal choice. Sometimes it is refreshing not to overthink the accessories, isn't it? I love the fact that there are so many different floral prints trending right now. From vintage floral print to bold floral prints, there is a floral print for everyone this summer. It's all about finding the one you like the most. Speaking of which, today I prepared a little guide for finding an ideal floral dress with a selection of dresses from Zaful


How to find your an ideal floral print dress for you?

1. Think about the prints that  you usually wear or those you would like to wear. What kind of floral prints do you generally enjoy? If you like, for example, tops with sunflower print, maybe it is time you try a dress with the same print. Do you like bold prints or more subtle ones? Do you like tiny floral print or oversize one? Whatever might be your presence, this summer you're in luck, as all kind of floral prints are trending, from abstract ones to bold ones, from subtle vintage ones to big floral ones. You can do no wrong. 

2. Think about colours and shades that look good on you. Colour theory is no sham, we all have colours and shades that make us look better or worse. Once you identified the your colour palette, shopping for that ideal floral dress should be a bit easier. Floral dresses tend to be colourful, but it is is always good to pay attention to the most dominate colour of the dress. If you aren't certain what it is, sometimes it helps to stand back a little further away and see the dress from the distance. Without the print to distract you, this way you should be able to identify the dominant shades and decide whether they are those the kind that looks good on you. 

3. Think about the length and the cut you would like to wear. Do you feel more comfortable in a maxi then in a mini dress? Then go for maxi. You want something in between? Then choose a midi floral dress. Perhaps you already have a lot of dresses in certain cut and you want your floral dress to be something different. Alternatively, you might already be quite certain of what length and cut works best for you. In that case, go for that. If you're shopping online, make sure you pay attention to measurements. That way you'll be sure you'll be getting exactly what you want, be it a mini, midi or a maxi floral dress. 

4. Think about materials and details. What kind of materials do you like? Do you like sheer fabrics or do you prefer something else? If you don't like anything sheer or transparent keep in mind that darker fabrics tend to be less transparent than lighter ones. Still, even a lighter dress might  not be transparent if it has a dense print that is colorful enough. If you're buying a store, a good trick is to put your hand under the fabric. If you can see your hand, you know it's transparent. If you're shopping online, try to see as many images of the product as you can and make your judgement on that. Moving on! Details are important as well? Do you like romantic details like ruffles? Do you like dresses with buttons? Write down all the details you typically like in a dress. You can even try to imagine what your ideal floral dress should be like. That should help you narrow down your choices. 

5. Think about your favourites. What are the items in your closet that are dearest to you? It doesn't have to be a dress, it can be anything. Think about why do you like that particular item? Is it its design? Is it its print? Is it the material or a combination of things? By taking the time to figure out what you already like in your closet, you'll be better able to make a good choice. I said that you don't have to look only at dress, but it will probably help to look at  dresses you already have (or those you would like to own) and figure out why you like them so much? Perhaps you can look for the dress you already have but you worn it once too many times? Anyhow, thinking about your clothing favourites does help in pin pointing your personal style- and that helps with finding the ideal floral dress.

  1. These are all great tips! (And choices might I add!) I've always been the kind of girl to gravitate towards more neutral colours and apparel without prints, however, this summer I have really been gravitating towards more colourful printed clothing such as army green, blue, tomato red, and mustard, and patterns like polka dots and florals. I know shocking right?! lol. I mean it's hard not to try wearing prints because that's pretty much all there is in the stores. I haven't shopped at Zaful before but I gravitate toward a lot of their clothing so now must be the perfect opportunity to check it out! Thanks for the coupon codes!

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
