Styling a Black Jacket, with kay me

Second only to the little black dress, a simple black jacket has truly wonderful styling potential. Suitable for office situations such as client work, presentations and meetings, as well as being the perfect layer for cool evenings over matching skirts and contrasting dresses, a black jacket is a true wardrobe staple.

kay me jackets have been specially designed with busy women in mind, and each new design is tested in-house at kay me HQ in Tokyo to ensure the best fit, tighten up tailoring and be given Junko Kemi’s seal of approval. From pockets to piped seams to feature buttons, kay me jackets are packed with attention to detail.

In celebration of the humble but essential black jacket, we’ve chosen a few coordinating dresses to show how versatile one jacket can be, in this case our simple and elegant black bolero jacket in stretch ponte fabric:

Back in black: stretch ponte black dress & black jacket


A simple look, but one that works – pairing our ponte bolero jacket with our beautifully tailored dress in matching ponte fabric. This dress features three-quarter sleeves, a moderate V-neck and specially placed tucks and darts to enhance your natural figure.

Fabric mix: Charlotte docking dress & black jacket


With the ease and convenience of a dress but the look of separates, our docking dresses are the definition of fuss-free elegance! Our Charlotte docking dress features a striking graphic monotone print in light and airy chiffon, contrasted with a structured black skirt.

Modern monotone: Smith Black dress & black jacket


If our Charlotte print has piqued your interest in black and white, our waist-gathered Smith Black dress is sure to tick all the boxes. Bold black and white brushstrokes make up this print, and our waist-gathered style is always flattering.

Feminine florals: Painting Yellow wrap dress & black jacket


Our signature wrap dresses have been updated for spring and summer 2017 with charming collars and three-quarter sleeves. Painting Yellow* features dramatic black and yellow florals on a white structured A-line skirt, with soft and stretchy contrasting black top.

Colour and pattern: Tile Fretwork venus drape dress & black jacket


Wrapping up our quick look at styling a black jacket is our venus drape dress in new Tile Fretwork print*, combining black and white with shades of rich teal green and touches of mustard with our signature venus drape style. Hand-draped from a single piece of fabric, our venus drape dresses, like all kay me items, are fully machine washable, drip-dry and non-iron.
