Summer Dressing

Summer is here! Garden parties, outdoor weddings, movies in the park and yes, business meetings. Updating our summer wardrobe should be fun and easy. Think layering, color, natural fibers and accessories. Bold colors, feminine fabrics and light-weight linens create a sense of fresh sophistication with summery effortless style. Vibrant reds, grassy greens and graphic black and whites are "must haves" in this summers' wardrobe. Hats are back, make them part of your wardrobe as a playfull accessory. After all, summers in the Bay area can be sunny and hot.

At Riki, beauty meets function in our ultimate semi-casual summer outfits.
