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,

Gibby Frillery collaboration

ITS HERE!!! ITS FINALLY HERE!! I am so excited to team up with Kim Bligh, the founder and creator of Gibby’s Frillery!! Kim and I have teamed up to bring you her exclusive creation, the Ribbon Scarf!! Talk about THE perfect transitional season accessory!! Take a look at the three exclusive patterns in the collection! AND there’s more!! A 30% of sales will be given to the American Brain Foundation, (follow them on Insta @americanbrainfoundation). We hope that you will join us in celebrating fashion with the exclusive Ribbon Scarf and make a difference in the fight against brain disease!! These beautiful pieces will be ready for Pre-order on Monday August 16th at www.Gibby.cc.

We are calling this print Lady Liberty!! I love how it helps tie in other accessories with similar pallets!! I am using it as a waist cinching belt!! Always a great piece to have in your wardrobe throughout the year making any look fit better in two seconds!! Soon it will be winter and we will want to gravitate towards pops of color to lift our spirits!!

This is Georgia, a print that gives a wonderful boho, western vibe with Aztec lines and shapes. Transitioning to layers and still loving the way it looks at the waist!! OR amp up a dark colored hat!!

For those of you that have been in this community for a while know that I adore a great neck bow! Meet Betty, this print is a great way to enter the school year and celebrate labor day!! Tying this ribbon scarf to the chain keeps your neck a bit cooler! Of course in the fall and winter months easily paired with collard shirt!

Ribbon scarfs work very well as headbands!! Made from a light weight stretchy kit similar to bathing suit material it easily ties. The two fabric contrasts creates the perfect detail!!

So no matter how you wear your scarf it will elevate your style instantly!! AND you will be helping fund research for a brain disease!

We want to feature all of your Gibby’s Frillery X Hinchology collab ribbon scarfs so be sure to #hinchology and #gibbysfrillery to be featured on our social media platforms!

Until next style,

Graphics to a T!

Graphic T’s are meant to be worn year round!…Especially in the summer months, super easy to style up or down! Do you have a favorite graphic T in your wardrobe? Nostalgic prints, bright pops and great graphics is what grabs my attention!

Go chic, a staple! “Inspired by” graphics can be easily paired with basics like black to create an interpretation of an LBD ( little black dress)! It also creates a great canvas to add bold popping accessories!

Layer on the accessories!! Love grabbing a vintage tee and layering it with metallic pops!! There is something iconic about that pairing! (click on this T-shirt)

Character graphics bring a Gucci esq vibe!! They tell a story! Dress down with adidas pants add a silk scarf to top it off!!

LOVED this graphic! Simple lines and color pops make it a great pairing with stripes!

Basic black with colors bursts!! So fun! Add jewelry and accessories that accentuate the pops!

Can you see now why I believe that graphic Tee’s are for all year long looks!?

Feel inspired? Use #getahinch and #hinchology and tag me @hinchology to connect with other fashionistas and lift one another up!

Until next style,

Spring prints into summer!

While everything around us in New York is coming back to life it jolts my fashion choices with prints! Love Spring for its Romantic vibes full of fun and whimsy! This is my spring roundups of prints!

If you don’t already know I am obsessed with French Macaroons! The shell, the chewy texture, the cream!!! They are just such amazing sweet treats! Spilt Milk macarons is my go to for French Macaroons!! So yummy tasting and looking!! They matched so well with my Alice and Olivia macaroon blouse!! Bringing in the whimsy with this print!!

My take on what Glamping would look like!! My Mom created so many memories with an R.V. that had a fire place in it…now that’s my kind of camping!! This is definitely more my speed than camping in a tent!! This dress may be one piece but creates shape by accentuating my waist. This dress is very similar.

Nothing like a spring vibe floral print and polka dot lace, dreaming in a cloud of pink flowered trees! This is at my son’s middle school! Frankie and I both agree that it’s such a gorgeous way to be greeted when you go to school! Remember life is what you make of it!! Appreciate what is around you!!

Take a spin on flowers with a water color vibe. These prints will make you look like you stepped out of a painting!!! This fascinator is a mini of the origional. Coming soon!!

Go black and white with a sprinkle of color, add a fascinator rose bud (also coming soon)!! It looks like it popped off the dress pattern and on to the top of my head!! Head turner!

As the warmer months approach less layers, bolder prints and sand filled flip flops will be the norm!

What styles are you excited to wear this summer season!?

Feel inspired, want to inspire together? #hinchology #getahinch @hinchology

Until next style,
