Opposites Attract: Black & White

Welcome Intrigue-ing Fashionistas!

As our Spring season is now in full swing, we find it fitting that our first blog blast touts trending Black and Whites. Who knew…Surprise!  The classic statement made by neutrals in contrast, bold black and hot white, comes with new direction…”Just add color, or not”!  Feel the freedom to accessorize with nature’s brights or natural neutrals.

Never out of style, we are seeing this strong craze heading straight into Fall 2014…an economic obsession!  You’ll find a zillion ways to change-up basics that make you happy and set the stage for power dressing at the office or daytime playing in style.  Dynamic evening attire is bound to express your romantic side…be brave!


Black and white interpretations are being seen on the “RUNWAYS” of Trina Turk, Chanel, and Diane von Furstenberg, to name a few.  You can showcase your vitality by mixing prints, color blocking, wearing geometric patterns or accenting with unexpected details.

Here at Intrigue, the “REALITY” of this eternal trend is ever so present! Check out our story wall showcasing designer dresses from Joseph Ribkoff, Nicole Miller, Yoana Baraschi, and Laundry.ImageBe inspired by Intrigue’s edge and InStyle’s “Haute Minimalism”.  The magazine article notes: “REASONS TO LOVE IT!  Architectural shapes and structured fabrics give way to swirly skirts, slouchy pants, and dresses that skim the body in a stripped-down palette of black and white. It’s a citified way of dressing that radiates a cool confidence.” Looking for a more causal way to wear the trend?  Look no further as Intrigue’s sporty wearables exhibit the classic contrast addiction too!

ImageShop looks from Bailey 44, Burning Touch, Elie Tahari, and Ted Baker.

Create your own reality but resist the urge to inject a predictable pop of color. Keep the look cohesive with black or nude footwear. If you’re not used to wearing color or prints, explore a more adventurous side to your style with pattern play!  Pair a printed bottom with a crisp white top, wear a printed dress, or take it a step further by mixing prints such as polka dots with stripes to create a unique and fun look. For the faint of heart, play it safe by blending solids.

We hope you are feeling inspired to create excitement in your Intrigue-ing spring wardrobe.  Thanks for joining us!

Until next post…Bring your personal fashion fabulosity to life!
