Spark your late fall wardrobe

As the days are becoming shorter I have been reaching for more sparkle and metallic for a little pick me up! Anyone else feel like metallics and sparkles are a must in their wardrobe? They are a magical element to brighten up your look!!

These boots by Gianni Bini came from Dillards…the picture does NO justice to how sparkly and eye catching they are. Reminds me of snow sparkling in the sun like diamonds after a storm! I got them for a steel, however I would have paid anything for them..they are amazing! Consider starting with some metallic pops in your shoe collection! Try these Guess tall Bonisa Rhinestone Embellished Over-the-knee boots at Dillard’s!

If silver boots aren’t your thing try some silver heels like these Nine West Galena heels for a head turning look. Get a solid blouse with some metallic polka dots like this sheer top from Express! Have you invested in brooches? They are such a versatile piece to bring a little pop of sparkle! You will feel out of this world while wearing your bling! ( I had to!!LOL)

Gold, black, brown and animal print….YES please!! Have fun with prints while the holiday season approaches you will get lots of use out of these pallets! Pair it with jeans and a tee for a chic dress down look. These heels were from Payless when Christian Soriano did a collab and the line was sooo good!! Try this metallic gold jacket from Walmart, and yes I know it’s from the men’s section, it still would dazzle and delight! Or this amazing zip up pocket sequin bomber jacket.

Layer on the chains and be sure to look for oversized mirrored metallic earrings like these Kathleen Benham tiger earrings. Her Rainbow glitter acrylic triangle dangles are so super for the holidays!! Metallics don’t have to be in your face, they can be popped into your look like the trim on these Gucci pom pom booties!

Pleated skirts are a staple piece in my wardrobe! If I could have a rainbow of pleated skirts in my closet I would!! So when this metallic silver sparkle was spotted I couldn’t resist!!! Pair it with black and white, layer it with a pop of color!!! Take a look at Walmart’s shimmering pleated skirt.

Black sparkle will create a great background for any print or color mix! Take a look at this amazing sequin one button boyfriend blazer from Express!! I want to thank Tina Demel boutique of Roslyn, New York for this amazing Greek evil eye hand painted purse!! Eye catching isn’t it!?

You can tell how much I adore these boots..LOL! Match your sparkle with a monochromatic look and add the matching metallic accessories.. a simple stunner affect!

So….will you be adding some bling to this late fall turn holiday time?

Feel inspired @hincholgy and #getahinch to inspire together!

Until next style,

Summer Metallics

The summer solstice is upon us and it is time to bring out the metallics and shine! (Insert Rhianna’s Diamonds song here please!) Sun’s out so it’s time to get noticed with fresh and new takes on fashion.

In my wardrobe metallics are a neutral, thank you Tori Burch! Gold and white are a perfect pair. This combo give an angelic and classic vibe!! Add in some linen and you have the perfect light weight and breathable summer go to!

I encourage you to wear one piece of your wardrobe differently then you ever have before. What I mean by this is make a skirt a top or a strapless dress. The top below is a skirt! Get creative with what you have!! The more ways you can wear one piece the more outfits you can create!!

If you aren’t ready for the full on commitment of buying metallic clothes than add them in with your accessories. Accessories can dress up or down an outfit and gives a wonderful pop to any summer look. Add a trendy accessory like a turban!! They can be worn by themselves or adorned with pins for a bit of added fun.

Another great metallic is silver. It works so well with all shades of grays and creates a monochromatic fashion statement!! Add diamonds with your silver fashion to really enhance the metallic pop!

Gun metal is a striking metallic for the season. If you wear a statement piece (Like the pants below) then keep the top simple. To tone any outfit down add denim.

This time of the year fashion calls for metallics, brights and bling!! Investing in metallic jewelry, accessories and shoes is a way to incorporate a little sparkle to your hot weather wardrobe and be able to use for seasons to come!!

Lets support each other and inspire with creativity through fashion with #getahinch!!!

Do you have a summer metallic go to?

Until next shine….
