Tops of the season

As summer in New York continues to be hotter than the surface of the sun, I am wearing breathable fabrics and running from a.c. to a.c. So here are some of my top tops of the summer and how versatile they will or will not be for summer! Dress them up, dress them down, what to wear now and inspire for fall!

This Tee was my son’s, a souvenir from Hawaii!! I didn’t have the heart to donate it so I used it!! Put on some cream pants, draped a colorful scarf around my waist and Ta-da!

This Chanel inspo tee really brought the color! Pairing this for fall will be easy as 1, 2, 3! Don’t leave color to summer…fall will be busting with pops of fun colors.

Tube tops are a must for the super hot muggy days! This one I may actually try layering with an oversized bow blouse! Stay tuned!

This tank is an oldie but goodie! It layers amazing with plaid during the holiday time. Or go head to toe sparkle!! There’s never a bad time for more bling! Don’t you agree?

Do a basic tank with a little detailed edge and any print skirt!! Tops like this are great for under or over in the colder months! You can never go wrong with a basic!

A mock neck tank is always a great cut for summer and even better in the fall to layer for THE perfect color block look!

A little frilled neck always keeps whimsy in your look and uplifts the soul!! I created these lace pants, don’t look at the elastic..lol!! Other than that loved them!!

So end your summer at the top, with some of these tubes, tanks and Tee’s!! Get ready to get creative with them!! Because before we know it fall will be calling our name!

Until next style

Summer print pops

Summer is meant for fun prints and lots of color! Whether it’s in the clothes or the accessories, prints make everything better! So here is a collection of prints to find, wear and love!

This Sara Joy kaftan is a must for summer! Whether running errands, heading to lunch after the beach or anyr fun summer activity. The color pops against the black creating movement in the print, I couldn’t help but pair the dollar store butterfly stickers as accessories by just adding a few bobby pins!

Try a bit of a hippy vibe with wide leg bell bottom floral neutral pants with a fun swirl of color for a head scarf. I love pulling colors from patterns to add in to my accessories.

This Tabitha Brown X Target collaboration kimono/dress is a must with the bright pop of orange/yellow, colorful flowers and adorable white polka-dots! Paired so well with all white accessories!

Go BIG or go home is what they say! So pairing this fab lemon print, another great piece from the Tabitha Brown X Target collab, with this stark black a white print was such a great marriage! 

Do you do matchy matchy? I have to say..LOVE IT!! This jump suit is a repeat and from Walmart kids. If you are on the short side you can fit in some of the larger sized children’s clothes in lots of stores.

Sometimes a look comes together with opposites. Like light and dark. Pink, maroon..same family different shade!

A must in your wardrobe is a little jean vest!! Great for a little cover up especially if your in the a.c. and then heat! Pair it with a great black floral print.

So…….which prints will you be trying this summer!? Tag me @hinchology and #getahinch and #hinchology to be featured in my stories!

Until next style,

Suited summer

Summer is here and some of us will be working!! So here’s a little suited inspo for the upcoming season in the A. C. For me these looks won’t work cause I am in a hot box of a classroom!! The less layers for me the better!  But for those that need layers here are my top 3 combos for your best suited summer!

Sun dresses layered with a tweed jacket and neutral accessories are perfect for day looks that can convert into a hot summer night out or when you leave the A.C.! 

Bright and bold for those hot days.  Bring out the values of one color to make everything work well together! A silk tank and bright pop jacket. Love adding print like tiger to an orange look.  This was an inspirational day to say the least!!  I walked with so many amazing woman to create equality for African American woman, and to remind ALL women that we are queens!!  

Stepping through the summer garden chic and savvy!! Being a boss doesn’t stop because of a season!! Keep going! NEVER give up! Black and blue with a pop of turquoise will get you backyard BBQ ready straight from the office!

So remember these simple pieces to pair: Tweeds & sun dresses, pants & tanks and lots of color values for an uplifting summer filled with fashion!

Until next style,

Dresses of spring

What is a spring dress? For me that includes all kinds! From maxi to sun and a little bit of flow…it’s all about the details that you add with the dress to give the title spring!

Great cotton neutral wrap dresses can pop with layers and bigger than life bags!

This white embroidered beauty is from Mexico! It’s absolutely hands down a favorite!! love adding colorful accessories to give a celebration kind of vibe!

It’s not exactly a dress but adding what I call my wrestling belt created a dress vibe! The hot pink knee highs took it to a whole new level!

Loved the way that this yellow popped with the cloudy gray! The shape was fun and an instant mood boost! Gave a bit of royal vibes!

Fairytales are made of metallic fabrics and dainty necklaces! Working in like colors to your earrings and accessories creates a match made in heaven!

Textured lace, Jean jackets and evil eyes will keep the pep in your spring step!
