Saint and Sofia are a fairly new fashion brand, they started in January 2020, currently just online, but offering some really stylish mix and match capsule pieces and I am excited to have been given the opportunity to try them out and share my outfits with you!
I enjoyed browsing the Saint and Sofia website, it is so classy and vibrant and I love their photography - take a look under campaigns 'All Dressed Up, But Nowhere To Go' the photographer has really caught the mood of the empty London streets, it is a unique emptiness and something (I hope) we will never witness again but there is a certain poignancy in the photographs.
As I browsed the Saint and Sofia website to choose two items that would be gifted to me to feature on my blog, I noticed how every item can be used across the seasons, it didn't feel like they were limiting to winter or summer. Seasonless fashion is becoming much more of a thing where we see summer dresses being 'winterised' with layers like leggings, tights, boots and a cosy knit and then ready for spring and summer as the layers come off and we can move first to trainers then to sandals. We are moving away from fast fashion and back to timeless, classic styles where we embrace sustainability and get the best value cost per wear.

Saint and Sofia | Cavendish Tee in Cream
The first item I am featuring is the Saint and Sofia Cavendish Tee in Cream, It is also available in black, burgundy, navy, mauve and blush. It is made in a beautifully soft organic ribbed cotton and Saint and Sofia come in sizes from a 6 to a 22. The Cavendish Tee fits true to size, I ordered a 10 and it is perfect.
Saint and Sofia | Greenich Skirt in Abstract Animal
Then to make a stylish outfit, I chose the gorgeous floaty Greenich Skirt in Abstract Animal, Saint and Sofia also have this skirt available in a sparkle fleck (white), black, amber, navy and mauve. The sparkle fleck is made in an organic cotton and the abstract animal I am wearing is 100% eco viscose but each skirt fabric varies so do check them out in the different colours. For the Greenich Skirt I chose to size up to a 12 and this proved to be about right, the skirt is lovely and comfortable and not snug.
The Cavendish Tee features gorgeous puff sleeves making it much more of a statement piece than just a plain tee shirt. The ribbed fabric ensures that it fits well and is flattering. It is a medium weight jersey so it will disguise any lumps and bumps! It wouldn't be my first choice for a heatwave day but we don't get many of them!
The Greenich Skirt is a tiered midi skirt, although more maxi or midaxi on me (at 5 ft 2) and I love the length, it works really well on my frame and I didn't need to get it shortened, always a bonus. I love how the tiers make this skirt super floaty and swishy!
When choosing the two Saint and Sofia items to review, I really wanted to go with a light, summer vibe but with the option to mix and match and make both items work hard for me across the seasons.
I felt that they had a lot of darker colours on their website and although I'd seen the Greenich Skirt in Abstract Animal styled with black on Instagram I was keen to see how it would work with the cream - it was a bit of a gamble! But it paid off and I am delighted with this outfit. But the best thing is that I can really see it working in the autumn - add a black biker jacket and some chunky boots! And for spring, wear it with some trainers and a black cashmere cardigan around your shoulders!
Next, I tried each piece with other items in my wardrobe to make sure I could really mix it up ... first the Cavendish Tee in Cream with a simple black skirt. I love how adding my black and gold Gucci belt with the gold accessories really brings the cream to life.
Try the Greenich Skirt in Black or I was really tempted with the Mauve, it is such a pretty colour and is made with a silky eco viscose, Saint and Sofia have lots of tops in Mauve too, take a look at this stunning mauve Saint and Sofia outfit.
My final outfit features the Greenich Skirt in Abstract Animal again, still for summer but still ideal for layering, I am wearing a favourite camisole in black, swapped my necklace and added a summer trilby hat.
I can really see the Greenich Skirt working in winter with a black knit and boots!
Favourite styles from Saint and Sofia
Take a look at some of the other styles from Saint and Sofia that would work with the Cavendish Tee and. the Greenich Skirt.
There's the Knot Vest or the Rib Cami and the Soho Crop Cardigan would look amazing for cooler days.
And the Rita Market Basket in Yellow would be a fabulous stand out accessory!
I hear some good reviews about their trousers too, I like the look of the Chelsea Culotte in Blush (lot of other colours too) and they look pretty with the Cavendish Tee.
The Runway Pant comes in different leg lengths! There are lots of styles in petite or tall across the full range and hopefully this will be expanded - I'd like to request the Greenich Dress in a short length please!
About Saint and Sofia
Saint and Sofia have some serious style credentials and their award winning team have worked previously for many of the big fashion houses. They design in London and their factories are small family run businesses in Europe. Sustainability is a priority and fabrics are carefully chosen. They love story telling and their website is worth an explore - as I mentioned I love their deserted streets photos in London.
Saint and Sofia offer free delivery on orders over £75 and free exchanges or credit note, for a refund as with a lot of smaller brands, you will need to pay return postage.
I have really enjoyed reviewing the Saint and Sofia styles and a big thank you to my son who fitted me into his busy schedule and did the photos for me!
