Summer styles for the office

It’s June, and the weather is certainly heating up here in Tokyo!

As with every year, it’s a constant battle between keeping cool, defying freezing air-conditioning and looking professional in the office. This timely conundrum isn’t going anywhere, but fear not – kay me stylists are on hand to offer their expert advice.

This week we’ve asked our stylists for their top tips for warm-weather work wear…

Sleeveless/short-sleeve dresses

We’re so proud of our great selection of versatile short-sleeve and sleeveless dresses, perfect for work and weekends. Here, we’ve chosen to highlight some of our most office-appropriate dresses, with clean lines and figure-flattering draping.

New for 2019 are our Shoulder Venus dresses, available in four chic color combinations, and pretty square-neck dresses with a retro feel and soft over-layer that showcases the impeccable draping.

Easily pair any of these dresses with matching or contrasting jackets and cardigans for an extra touch of smartness when necessary.

Light outerwear

Speaking of outerwear, our stylists recommend our stylish cardigans in light tencel blend knit that’s perfect for hot weather. Our cardigans are breathable and feel soft on the skin, while providing protection from the sun as well as overactive air-conditioning.

For those who need to wear a suit jacket, our unlined jackets are specially made for the summer months, and combine classic tailoring with our machine washable drip-dry fabrics, leaving more time for you to focus on what’s important to you.

Light layers

Light and airy, there’s nothing better than pretty chiffon for spring and summer – unless it’s our soft and stretchy chiffon!

Specially selected to be hard-wearing as well as a pleasure to wear, our chiffon tops keep you cool in the office, while still providing coverage. Choose from prints and patterns such as our Lovely Pink floral design, and plain colors to mix and match with ease.

While it might sound counterintuitive to add an extra layer in summer, our comfortable underdress can provide a soft solution to layering, and with an extra-absorbent cotton-blend top paired with a lightweight skirt, our camisoles are a wonderful addition to any kay me wardrobe.
