Three ways to wear prints and patterns at work

Have you taken a look at our print gallery recently? You can find everything from flowing watercolors and pretty polka dots to strong geometrics and authentic Japanese kimono prints. Specially designed for kay me and even further adapted by our in-house design team, all our prints are originals. Read more of our print stories with Yuko from the atelier team.

As much as we love wearing prints and patterns, bringing these bold styles into business situations can sometimes feel like a challenge – as much as your love your new floral dress, is it office-appropriate?

This week, we’ve tasked kay me stylists to come up with three easy ways to wear prints and patterns in the office.

Print dresses

For instant elegance, try pairing our striking geometric designs with kay me knitwear such as our Kanazawa-made cardigans or a soft silk blend sweater – the contrasting textures add the finishing chic touch, and help to tone down the look of an all-over print. Choose matching tones for a harmonious style, or a bold contrast to stand out from the crowd.

Continuing the idea of contrasts, wear our charming florals with a beautifully structured hand-tailored jacket for an office outfit with a feminine twist.

Print tops

Our chiffon blouses are light and airy, stretchy and of course fully machine washable. Wear with skirts in different colors for a soft look this spring and summer, and choose from our spring-like pink floral and elegant geometric patterns.

For a more fitted option, our cache-coeur top in rayon jersey is a great choice for transitional seasons – wear with a jacket for cooler days, and enjoy the flattering three-quarter sleeves in the sunshine.

Print accessories

Add the finishing touched to your kay me outfit with our selection of original bags and stoles.

Specially designed for business with plenty of pockets and a dedicated laptop sleeve, our PC bags and 2-way business bags are both available in floral prints to bring a touch of nature and excitement to any outfit.

Our pretty handmade stoles are the perfect way to easily bring color and pattern to your wardrobe. Tie in different ways, use as a lap blanket or even as a bag accessory – the choice is yours. Topping off an outfit of solid colors with a subtly patterned scarf is always a popular style choice here in Tokyo, and a great way to bring prints into a more formal closet.
