Styling tips for party season

As we edge closer towards the end of the year, party season is fast approaching in its blaze of lights, canapés and clinking glasses.

As tempting as it is to splurge on one party dress for one specific occasion, here at key me we love being able to style our dresses, jackets and suits in different ways to make the most of each item.

Yes, we’re all about cost-per-wear (the price of the item divided by how many time it’s worn), and our versatile designs and easy-care fabrics encourage you to make the most of your beautiful kay me clothing.

This week on the kay me blog, we’ve rounded up our selection of party outfits for different occasions from work to casual, and have asked our team of expert store stylists in and around Tokyo for their top tips and tricks for styling your way through the season and beyond…

Business party

While this party may be obligatory, sombre clothing is not. Stand out from the crowd in our stunning frill docking dresses in vivid pink and warm mustard, designed to look like and have all the convenience of a one-piece dress. These special dresses wonderfully utilize contrasting materials, with a stretch chiffon for the top and our washable wool blend for the skirt.

Remember that suits don’t have to be characterless – try our pretty frilled jacket for a feminine and sculptural look, or our new lace peplum suits, available in lilac blue and navy, for a suit setup with an elegant retro twist.

Styling tip: keep accessories simple with bright colors, and re-wear our lace slit skirts with blouses and knitwear for 9-to-5 in the office.

Family and friends

A true kay me classic, our cache-coeur dresses have been painstakingly developed from scratch by our atelier team to create the most flattering fit-and-flare design with built-in waist sash and cross-over bust, making for a truly versatile dress that’s a pleasure to wear again and again.

Choose from our range of colors updated for 2018, including red, royal blue, navy and green, all rich hues designed to be dressed up and down as you like.

Styling tip: wear these feminine and comfortable dresses with our stretchy riders jackets for weekend outings, and simply pop on a matching or contrasting kay me tailored jacket for the work week.

Festive fun

For those that love to make an impression, our loose-fitting bold red V-neck dress is a must for the festive season, along with our Baby Emerald print dress that captures the frosty florals of winter. This print in particular also looks stylish well into spring with the addition of light knitwear.

For a touch of Japanese elegance, our unique washable 100% silk kimono dresses are a timeless choice. Enjoy the beauty of traditional Japanese design and craftsmanship with the ease of our practical easy-care fabrics for a dress that’s sure to be closet staple for years to come.

Styling tip: our kimono dresses look just as pretty with kay me made in Japan knitwear for hosting at home as with a tailored jacket for outings including wedding parties.
