Three ways to wear florals this autumn

As follow up to our popular post featuring top tips on how to wear florals in the office, kay me stylists are back and ready to share with you three easy ways to wear florals in the fall season.

While summer suits bright colours and bold prints, and certainly we have no shortage of these at kay me, autumn provides us with a more mellow colour palette and chance to explore a softer side to our favourite florals…

With darker colours

With the nights drawing in week by week, bring out the richer tones in our floral prints by pairing them with darker colours. Wear our Tribal Black venus drape dress with our cropped black bolero cardigan, and our Monotone Leaf piping dress with wool skirt and contrasting top with matching black tailored jacket. To bring our richness of the navy, our super stretchy Japanese indigo denim jacket is a great partner to our charming Iris dress.

Tailored jackets in black and navy are never out of style, and kay me’s easy-care fabrics can be washed and worn as often as you like.

With neutrals

For a modern look, try wearing darker floral prints with lighter colours to add contrast to your outfit. Our Shisa Terrace and Safari Sunset prints feature autumnal shades that capture the colours of the season here in Japan, and our Plume dress in grey watercolour tones is a grown-up take on a traditional floral design. Our stylists paired these items with our pure white lace stole and simple white knitwear to bring out the contrast present in these prints.

As a contemporary kimono

As with all aspects of traditional Japanese culture, from food to written greetings, kimono are seasonal too. Our top pick has to be our signature Otsukimi purple dress, named after the Japanese traditional of moon-viewing that takes place in October – just add mochi (rice cakes)! For a more dramatic look, try our Japan wrap dress in bold red, gold and black with distinctive kimono-style collar, or our patented washable silk dresses, such as Tokiwa Midori.
