Flowy Tops & Tees

Skip the skin-tight tops this summer and keep it cool with flowing silhouettes that don’t put any pressure on your style (literally!). Stockpile breathable summer fabrics in loose knits and breezy wovens that you can move, shake and dance in! Whether it’s a neutral color or bold pop-color, pair your breeziest tees with simple, lightweight bottom layers like: chambray pants, lightweight denim, midi-skirts and your favorite maxis.

Practical Carryalls

Find you a bag to do everything this summer—we personally dig a summer carryall. Literally, carry it all in this season’s totes and crossbody bags. From a roomy tote to house everything you need to an essentials-only crossbody, updating your handbag closet for the easiest way to spruce up your everyday look.

Breezy Dresses and Rompers

Looking for a “get ready in 5” piece? Reach for a romper or an easy, breezy dress to make summer dressing a snap. We love them for their weekend versatility and wearability—from the beach, to errands, to everything in-between, pair them with your comfiest sneakers or most stylish wedges for date-night to traveling light.

Ask Annette & Debbie: Is the Cold Shoulder Still Cool?

Dear Annette & Debbie, Off-the-shoulder tops and dresses are practically everywhere, and while I love the shape, I wonder if it’s too late for me to commit to the trend. Is it on its way out? Is there a way I can make it feel fresh? —Morgan W.

Dear Morgan, We are of the belief that the cold shoulder isn’t going anywhere—and for good reason: it’s feminine, creates a beautiful silhouette, and elevates everything from cutoffs to jeans to dresses. The other good news is that there are so many fresh iterations of the trend, whether you want to keep it demure or pump up the volume, there’s something for every comfort level here at Intrigue.

Beginner

If you’re apprehensive about revealing too much for the office, or just like to keep it simple, opt for a top or dress that shows off subtle slivers of collarbone and décolletage. Pair with a platform shoe and add a dramatic earring to finish.

Intermediate

Straps, ruffles, and asymmetrical details are the next step. Ultimately, these necklines are more festive and make the most sense in a dressed up scenario; you’ll want to balance the intricate details with subdued classics—pencil skirts work particularly well, even denim.

Advanced

We love the drama here. These elaborate blouses can go both ways: super dressed-up with elevated pants or a skirt, even a streamlined jean for a night out. Keep the shoes and bag simple so they don’t compete with the neckline.

Trend Alert: Se(a)ing Stripes

Stripes are a fashion staple. On the Spring 2017 runways, they took on a whole new personality. From in-your-face color-blocked incarnations to a re-imagining of classic pinstripes, stripes have gotten a real makeover.
Check out our favorite nautical nuances below…and don’t worry about buying into this trend because stripes will never go out of style!

Spring’s Best Shoe Trends

We like to think of Spring as the most appropriate time to invest in new shoes. You’ve got your pick of both open-toed styles and boots you’ll probably end up wearing year round. Not to mention, there’s a feel-good vibe in the warm air that should inspire you to create outfits with a little more flavor. And we happen to believe the foundation of an eye-catching look starts with solid footwear.

To encourage a closet refresh, we’ve curated a list of the season’s biggest shoe trends, all of which are surely bolder than the ones you’ve tried before. Scroll through a wide range of options, or jump straight ahead to the silhouette you’re searching for.

Rounded Heels

There is just something about geometrically shaped heels that gets our blood boiling and seeing the spring 2017 footwear trends including the circular designs is certainly pleasantly surprising.

Sneakers

You could say sneakers have replaced high heels, they are having a moment!

Open Back Footwear

Open back footwear is totally in and we are not just talking mules either.

Ultra Platforms

Stand tall in over-the-top platform sandals this season. Pair them with your Summer dress or jeans and a tee for an instant standout look.

Slider Comfort Fantasy

Flip-flops were once a huge thing on the streets, particularly in the ‘90s. Now, we have some funky sliders appearing instead, something we noticed last spring as well. They are flats with a laid back presentation.
