I’d love to be one of those Instagrammer’s who rock the oversized blazers, cycling shorts and cat eye sunglasses all the time. I mean its a vibe I am totally obsessed with and the 90s fashion really is in full swing. They say fashion has a twenty year cycle so thats why we are seeing things like blazers and cycling shorts being worn everywhere. Its that look were you can through on anything from your wardrobe, and pull it off as a completely new and different outfit. So out of my comfort zone but something I would LOVE. More of a routine person – sticking to the trusty old pieces all the time – I have recently found some shorts that hopefully will get me out of my styling habit.
The shorts in question are from a brand called Saint + Sofia. Saint and Sofia provide some amazing tailored and structured pieces. They are a bit of a rock and roll brand with an edge to them. The shorts are the Kew Shorts in Khaki. I was drawn to the Khaki colour because it fits into the autumnal neutral palette that compliments my skin tone well. They say on the website they can be styled up or down for out days this summer or duvet days. Personally, I would style them for more of a casual outfit to go out, rather than for duvet days. However the fabric is really comfortable and soft, and a really high quality.
I wish I sized down because they are slightly big (unless I have a big meal). However the buttons on the waist band is something that I can adjust to make the waist a little smaller. But I love the fact that these shorts aren’t tight. I know a lot of people feel uncomfortable with a pair of tight shorts, and when there is a heatwave in motion, you don’t want to be wearing jeans. So these are a perfect alternative for all ages.
I have been really inspired by the likes of Lauren Grace Life, Tanis and Holly Rebecca White for styling blazers. I really need to up my blazer game, something I have mentioned before and am yet to do. However I do have this oversized blazer. Technically this is actually my Dad’s blazer. It’s a bit of an old vintage blazer so unfortunately I can’t tell you where it is from. But I matched it with the shorts as I thought I was fitting of the 90s style oversized look. Very out of my comfort zone however I feel its sort of a vibe.
I matched this outfit with some chunky cream trainers and also a cream high night vest top. These just complement the look without drawing attention away from the blazer and the shorts.

Ooh, I love your outfit! I’m with you on not finding the shorts all too suitable for duvet days, Great post x
Love the oversized blazer look on You!
Ah yes I love this style! And the shorts don’t look big, but annoying when they are slipping around sans a food baby.
Ahaha! When I took this I was bloated from being on my period so they fitted fine! But just a bit big when I am not bloated!
I love that the 90’s look has come back around! I love an oversized anything but a little worried it would swallow up my petite frame. I love the shorts and the fact that the Brand is a bit rock and roll. I hope you are doing well : ) xo
I think you should try it! You won’t know until you try!
I love this look! You look so effortlessly cool in it. I’m really short so tend to only go oversized on the top or bottom so it doesn’t drown my frame but I might actually step outside of my comfort zone and try this x
Yes!! I say you go for it!
I love the return of this trend! I’ve pinned so many similar looks to my clothes board as if I’m actually going to be adventurous with my fashion :’) Love how you styled this!! You can never go wrong with dad’s old cardigans, jackets, etc from the 80s/90s haha; I’ve done that many a time xx
Yes my Pinterest is filled with similar styles too!
You can absolutely, definitely rock this look! You look amazing! xx
Loving your outfit, so chic!
