Summer T's and Being Carefree!


Even though we’re only halfway through the week we have our eyes on the weekend, as always! As it’s starting to really heat up we want to be anywhere outside and by the water; we’re thinking floating the river, camping, and cook outs! Even though it’s getting hot and humid out we know you still want to look cute, so we have you covered!

What better way to show off your southern roots than with these adorable “Y’All” shirts?! We love how soft these shirts are; they’re perfect for throwing on over a bathing suit or for pairing with jean shorts and sandals, with a gold Texas necklace of course!


For those days when you'd rather be out in the country, this super soft charcoal skull shirt, available in tank top and short sleeve, is perfect! This shirt would look adorable with distressed jean shorts and cowboy boots; it’s a great mix of hippie chic and country cute! Obviously, we love how it looks when paired with the skull necklace or double layered with our Austin and Texas script necklaces!



We love this Happy Camper shirt! It makes us feel like we’re carefree and in the 70’s! We also can’t get enough of the beautiful teal color; it looks amazing on all skin tones! This shirt is one that we can’t wait to bring with us to the beach, lake, and river, as it is ideal to throw over a bathing suit when you’re on the go!


We can’t wait for the carefree summer months spent by the water, eating amazing barbecue, and spending time in good company! With these comfy and cute shirts you’ll be ready for whatever last minute plans arise and will look adorable while doing it!

Put a Ring on It! Accessorizing in Style!


Here at Longhorn Fashions we believe that the perfect accessory can tie an outfit together! Whether you’re hanging out with friends or attending a special event, we have the perfect accessories for you!

Just as BeyoncĂ© says, put a ring on it. Rings are the perfect subtle accent to any outfit! Mid-finger rings are so trendy right now; they instantly make any outfit a little more stylish and interesting! We love this burnt orange ring for football season, it’s the perfect way to integrate more school spirit subtly into your outfit. Plus, this ring gives a hippy-chic vibe to any outfit during the off-season!


We all have bad hair days, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t remedy it with a chic headband! These adorable bands are perfect for tying an outfit together with a fashionable and feminine detail! We are obsessed with this white lace headband; it would be perfect with a t-shirt and leggings, a maxi skirt and jean jacket, or a burnt orange dress on game day!


Clutches are the perfect way to carry your belongings while pulling your outfit together! This gold sequin clutch is perfect for adding a little glam to a neutral and casual outfit or a little black dress! We love the gold detailing on the white and gold clutch; the peekaboo of gold is the perfect hint of color! The texturing on the flap of the solid white clutch keeps this neutral clutch interesting and versatile, helping it stretch your closet!



Earrings are one of the best ways to draw attention to your face and can be switched out quickly when you’re on the run! We are obsessed with how statement earrings look with a white t-shirt and jeans; it makes the outfit glamorous and fashionable without too much fuss! Statement earrings are a great accessory when you only want to wear one piece of jewelry, as they are so intricate and colorful that you don’t have to wear a necklace or bracelet with it!

Dainty necklaces are perfect for day-to-day wear; they can show what’s near and dear to your heart without distracting from your outfit!  Whether you’re wearing your sorority’s symbol or the state of Texas, dainty necklaces are perfect for everyday wear and accessorizing!



You may remember our post about statement necklaces, but to summarize, we LOVE them. They’re perfect for dressing up basically any outfit! Wearing a statement necklace with jeans and a t-shirt is instantly chic, while pairing it with a dress can make you black-tie ready!


Accessorizing shows that you took the extra time to put your outfit together to make it look polished! Regardless of what your go-to accessory is, come stop by  the store or look around online to see what’s new!

How to Style Your Crop Top

So frequently I hear “I could never pull off a crop top, I don’t have the body for it”. First of all, you have a body, so you have the body for it, but that’s not the point! Sure, you may not feel confident wearing a crop top with low-rise shorts, I know I don’t, but that should not stop you from trying out this trend!

In the same way that life is all about balance, so is fashion. To rock this ultra short shirt with confidence, without bearing too much skin, balance it out with a long, high-waisted maxi skirt. The shirt will stop just below the ribs, but a high-waisted maxi skirt covers the rest of your body, helping you feel confident and modest!

At Longhorn Fashions we are obsessed with this braided lilac maxi skirt, it seriously looks perfect with everything! We love how it looks adorable and fashionable when color blocked with our navy cutout crop top, and bohemian and chic when paired with our tribal printed crop top!



How adorable does Tessie look in Italy wearing our tribal crop top with the lilac maxi skirt?!



We also love how our burnt orange maxi skirt looks with the white embroidered crop top, it’s perfect for a music festival, a day in the park, or for lunch with friends! The combination of cotton maxi skirt and crop top will leave you feeling comfortable in the warmer months while looking cool, a win-win for us!


The balance of the short shirt and long skirt makes this trend so much more approachable, and we can’t wait to wear it all summer long!

Statement Necklaces

Every outfit needs a focal point, maybe an interesting print, fabric, or piece of jewelry to draw attention to both you and your outfit, and strike up a conversation! One of my favorite ways, as I mentioned in my Summer Favorites post, is through statement necklaces. Statement necklaces are the perfect way to add color or sparkle to any outfit, and they can be worn with virtually anything; ranging from a plain white t-shirt and jeans to a ball gown.  Regardless of what they’re paired with, they make your outfit more interesting, cohesive, and colorful!


One of my favorite ways to wear a statement necklace is with the simple jeans and t-shirt combination. What says causal better than this classic combination? With the addition of big, chunky necklaces you can add color and glam to what is an otherwise simple outfit.  I personally love wearing jean shirts with large necklaces, but that might just be because I love denim tops and think that almost anything looks good with them! The combination of laidback jeans mixed with the polished gems gives you a put together look, without looking stuffy or overdressed! This combination is a great go-to outfit for running errands on the weekend or for meeting up with friends for coffee!


Statement necklaces help stretch your office attire as well! A simple black dress becomes much more versatile with the addition of different necklaces, while simple shifts become dressier and more professional! Unless you work in a creative field, I recommend sticking to clear gems to minimize distraction and maintaining maturity without sacrificing style!





For a more glamorous look, a statement necklace paired with a cocktail dress or evening gown can draw attention to your neckline and face while completing the look. The sparkle at the neckline instantly draws the attention in towards your upper body, and will be a great conversation piece at events! Depending on the pattern in the dress, you can add texture and a complimentary color to your outfit through your necklace, which gives your outfit an artsy and free spirited vibe!






With such a variety of necklaces in store, you’re probably wondering which one you’d get the most wear out of, right? I suggest looking at your wardrobe and seeing what colors you wear most, then thinking about what would compliment it. If you wear a lot of bright colors or have a very classic and neutral style, stick with clear or white gems. If you notice that your outfit needs a little pop of color, try out a necklace that has multiple colors in it that can be worn with a variety of items you already own! Sometimes our closets need the addition of color, so statement necklaces are the perfect, inexpensive way to add variety and versatility to your closet!

Maxi Dresses Around the World

I believe fashion is a way to transport yourself to a certain decade or location in the world even when you can't physically be there. Depending on your style, you can pay homage to any decade or culture of your choosing. Plane tickets these days are outrageous so here's your passport at a reasonable and fashionable price!

First stop: Greece

The crisp white and blue print on this maxi dress make us feel like we're sunbathing while eating olives in the Mediterranean.  



Layover in: Morocco 

We love the mirrored patterns of the lamps on the skirt mixed with the warm neutral tones! This dress makes us feel as though we're walking through a bazaar on a warm summer's night.

Then to: South Africa

The airy feel of this dress is both comfortable and bright. We love how the top mirrors the national flag!

Vacation in: Jamaica

This black and white printed maxi dress with colorful embroidery makes us want to get up and dance! By incorporating the colors of Jamaica, we're ready to be on the beach!

Stopping by: Mexico


We love the aztec print on this dress! Also, how darling is that Mexican apartment?!

Finally: The United States, Savannah

Inspired by Savannah's artsy and beachy culture, this outfit is laid back, comfortable, and lightweight for the summer heat!


The United States: The Grand Canyon

Incorporate the ever present turquoise into your outfit as you mimic the peaks, valleys, and layered rock of the Grand Canyon!

While you're saving up to see the world you can still travel every time you open your closet!
