Print mix

To say that I am excited to be writing this is an understatement! Today’s blog is a collaboration with two amazing stylists!! Jennifer Sattler from @closetcoreography and Audree kate Lopez Blog and creator of fashion fundamentals.

We all focused on print mixing coming from the views of a personal stylist, an industry stylist and myself. Being an art teacher has enabled me to dress like I am on a runway everyday inspiring my students and allowing my brand Hinchology to go from a dream to reality.

One mix that I love is organics like florals and animals prints! The fact that wild animals live IN the wild must be the reason they always looks so great together!! I adored the add of geometric houndstooth that worked so well because of like colors and created an amazing contrast!

Similar Prints are so super fun!!!! Even though they are different tie dye the color and type of tie dye worked well topped with a headband!

Find colors in one print and match it with another! Pulling pops of color from one print unifies the look. Here you see the geometric paired with the large animal print. (small print works well with big print)

Mixing large and smaller or thick and thin prints work well together! In layers it breaks up the print and brings balance.

Pop a colorful print with a muted one. Bring out the brights against neutrals. Use Black accessories to marry the two. When you add a solid it pulls your eye from head to toe.

Go for monochromatic or color combinations. Pairing colors in different patterns work so easily! A fun pick me up to ANY look!!

Pop white, cream with light pinks to accent a show stopping print or pattern!!! Pull those print mixes within the accessories to add unexpected details.

So grateful to have been able to mix it up with my friends Jennifer and Audree Kate. Collaborating, connecting, uplifting like minded fashionistas is exactly one of the reasons I started this journey!!

Feeling inspired #getahinch and #hinchology!

Sweater weather

The snow has come, the holidays are here so sweaters are in rotation in my wardrobe! Sweaters are so comfy, warm and a must for the cold months ahead! I really love adding layers to create great textures and pallets. So let’s look and see how creative we can get with sweaters!

This Wal-mart plaid sweater is such a wonderful holiday vibe! Add black and some gold hardware and you will be rocking your holidays! This plaid sweater from Shein is a different take, looks more like a tweed, and would be a great plaid to throw in the mix for winter looks to come.

Have you invested in neutrals like black, Gray and white? these are musts..and will be used years to come. Having these basics is the perfect way to have fun with your shoes and pants. Added texture like these lace pants or these satin mule pumps by Sarah Jessica Parker brings your texture game to a new level!

Color is my jam as most of you know so a great ski sweater with a vibrant knit is always fun and upbeat!! Ski sweaters usually have multiple colors in their design so it’s super super easy to pair it with your favorite bottom! Check out this Ski sweater…the possibilities are endless!!

Start with a sweater that has colors you know you can match!! For example this red and gray design. Having black basics also helps. All you need is a hat and sock match to have the total look. Check this Ski sweater from the GAP!!

Have fun adding sparkles with a sweater like these great pants tucked into my boots for a fun shape! Found these super fun striped pants on Poshmark that has all the colors you would need to pair with a sweater!!

Of course then there are the cute and fun character sweaters! This pink sweater was screaming to be paired with a bright neon. Ever use your summer attire layered in the winter? This bright pleated sun dress has doubled into a fun skirt for winter!! Try this leopard sweater or this one to match with this fun poppin’ pleated skirt!!

Do you ever find something you like and buy it in multiples? (or in this case my husband did lol) Well with simple changes you can create different looks! Add a belt, add a hat, wear different colors pulled from the pattern. I found an amazing houndstooth sweater poncho on Shein that really could be paired with any color in the rainbow! They also have a similar one from the above looks but in winter white…how fun!!

Layer them, mix them up with unexpected pops of colors or add a different texture!! Remember how you dress tells the world a bit about you!! So go for the fun, add the edge and be unapologetic!

Feel inspired and want to share together!? #getahinch @hinchology to inspire together!!

Until next style!
