Wedding season is here again, and there’s nothing better than a fresh new outfit to mark a special occasion. However, we also love making the most of our purchases and considering “cost per wear” – the cost of the item vs how often it’s worn.
In our effort to create versatile and stylish dresses and clothing can be worn for a variety of occasions, we tasked kay me stylists with reimagining looks for four of our favorite summer dresses that look just as great on the dance floor as on the daily commute…
To start with, our stylists chose a selection of pretty prints and colors. Our Aquarium dress is made from a beautiful chiffon fabric that’s light and airy as well as being stretchy and opaque with a built-in under layer, and gathered ribbon-like waist detail.
Our new square neck design is elegant and simple with a flattering line of gathers that highlights your natural figure, while our classic Venus drape style is the perfect partner for our new ammonite print, inspired by the mysterious depths of the ocean.
Finally, our popular waist gather style with 72 hand-placed tucks meets our vibrant and fun lemon print – great for a destination wedding in the sunshine.
Wear our selected dresses with kay me’s made in Japan knitwear for a variety of situations!
Our bolero cardigan is thick and soft with a dense weave and a beautiful drape that skims the body, and paired with our silver pouch makes for a glamorous layer.
Our long cardigan is great for busy days on the go both in and out of the office, featuring a kimono-inspired shawl collar and useful deep pockets on either side.
For a splash of color, our vitamin cardigans are fantastic choice for warm weather, with a tencel blend that’s light and cool, and a selection of variously shaped crystal buttons for a final sparkling touch.
For formal occasions, in the office and for cool weather, you just can’t go wrong with a well tailored classic jacket. All kay me jackets are handmade here in Tokyo, using our specially selected stretch fabric and stitching that allows greater freedom of movement and day-long comfort.
Contrast the bold and bright aquatic colors of our Aquarium print with a cool gray bolero jacket for maximum style points, or play up color-blocking with our simple jacket in black – kay me’s bolero jackets are a slightly cropped length with raised waist seam and hidden pockets, making them a great outerwear option.
If you’ve never tried a white jacket before, now’s your chance! A lovely choice for the summer, white jackets add a touch of fresh elegance to every outfit. There’s no need to worry about accidents, as naturally all our jackets are also fully machine washable at home, drip dry and do not need ironing. In fact, our fabrics are chosen to be crease-resistant, making them perfect for travel as well.
Thanks to our stylists for their simple and stylish solutions for making the most of your kay me dresses!
