Fall mix ups!

Each season has it’s own special vibe in fashion. For me fall is where it’s at! The layers, the textures and the endless color pallets! So let’s get inspired to pop small mixed prints or really shake things up with three or more!

Let’s face it polka dots are ALWAYS a good idea!! Add a fun belt to make a small but mighty pop!! I absolutely adore houndstooth and feel like it married well with the dots!

This was a fun combo! Animal print and geometric patterns!! I really love how the orange and Jean vest pulled from the dress print! The original GG Gucci print acts like a neutral!! So if you want to invest in a high end bag or accessory think of a monogram that you like!!

I was DELIGHTED when this fun whimsical French Macaroon top paired so well with the geometric print!! It all came down to the eye catching colors!! Seek out matching colors within the prints!!

Think Georgia O’Keefe western landscape vibes with cactus flowers, snakes and butterflies. Layering a sheer tank allowed the snake print to show through and be one with the flowers! Adding my third print for a head scarf! I turned up the look with beaded necklaces and a macrame wooden belt.

Pink and tan or brown are such a great pair! Large gingham and a small plaid even down to the tights!! Metallic belt and heel match drawing your eye from head to toe!

Hope this fun print mix post has inspired you to get out of your comfort zone to shake things up!

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!
