For those of us in the northern hemisphere, it’s all about keeping warm and cosy! Staying chic and work appropriate is often a concern for women here in Tokyo as well as overseas – but kay me is here to help with our quality fabrics that are comfortable and easy to care for, wonderful for a stress-free winter.
Let kay me guide you on how to layer up this winter for work days without compromising on style or comfort…
Step One: Warm Underdress
Start with a good foundation – a base layer is key for keeping you warm and protecting against any chills. Our warm underdresses are available in charcoal for darker dresses and greige for lighter dresses. The separately-constructed top and skirt are made from different heat-insulating rayon blends and designed to hug the body while being soft and stretchy.
Step Two: Pure Wool
When the mercury heads down, make sure to reach for one of our beautiful pure wool dresses or skirts. This winter we recommend our Navy Leopard and Office Animal print dresses, as well as our office-friendly slim fitting switch skirts in navy, light grey, beige or black. Simply pair these dresses and skirts with a matching jacket for easy early mornings, or mix and match with contrasting shades for an easily expanded wardrobe.
Step Three: Knitwear
For those in need of an extra layer, our Japan-made knitwear is the perfect choice. Fully washable and effortless soft and light, our turtlenecks, cardigans and boleros can be worn for weekends as well as work day and evening events. kay me stylists recommend wearing our subtly sparkly knit jumpers with our pure wool suits for a lovely pastel winter look.
Step Four: Outerwear
Princess lines or a padded trench? Choose your style from our range of pretty coats in classic A-line shapes and cute prints. Our wool coats are available in navy and white-grey, while our cotton-padded trench coats feature flamingos on a navy base, giraffes on a caramel base, and cats on a grey background – great for standing out from the crowd.
Swap a coat for one of our Vegan-friendly faux-leather jackets for weekend style on the go.
Step Five: Select Scarves
The finishing touch to any kay me outfit, our kay me Select scarves have been personally chosen by Junko Kemi and expertly handmade in India by artisan craftspeople who also hand-weave for Maharajas.
Choose from cashmere, wool and silk blends, lace and sequins. kay me stylists love opting for all-navy evening outfits topped with a navy scarf, or varying wintery pastels with light suits paired with pale scarves. A great gift for someone special – or yourself!
