Summer Style inspiration – Rik Rak

June 20, 2017

Seaside stripes… tick. Summer florals… tick. Ruffled shoulder detail…. tick. Rik Rak…..??? There is a certain predictability with summer fashion but this season there is a nostalgic detail that I love that sets your summer dresses and skirts apart from the rest – Rik Rak.

 When I was a little girl, I thought of my mum’s wardrobe as one big dressing up box. My favourite dress of hers was a seemingly simple white dress covered with ribbons and rik-rak sewn in alternate layers. I have had a nostalgic fondness for Rik Rak ever since. And to my delight it is the fashion detail of the moment. I snapped up a top from & Other Stories (similar here) and I have this dress, reminiscent of my Mum’s on my wish list. I also love this J crew, this Sonia Rykiel (now on sale!), this Dodo Bar Or dress and this Bliss and Mischief

If you are stuck in a rut and always buying the same uninspiring styles, get in touch and fall in love with your style again.
