4th of July Fun!


Kick off your 4th of July in a completely fashion forward way! This fourth is all about not being too literal and avoid jumping for that flag bikini or American flag striped t-shirt. Show off your stripes in a patriotic way that is more creative and changes things up a little bit.

Take this made in the USA blue and white printed off the shoulder dress for example. It incorporates two of the most important colors for this holiday, but not in the way that is usually seen. Pair it with leather sandals, wedges or cowgirl boots.  To add even a more patriotic touch, add a red bandana around the neck for a pop of color.



Now, if you are wanting to dress more patriotically for the holiday and want to be a little more literal about it, look no further than this navy striped romper. Not only does it feature the red, white and blue, but it also features the stripes of the flag without looking too "flag-ish" if you know what I mean. You will be sure to stand out. A great pair of shades and some gold accent jewelry will take it to the next level.


For those of you who do not want to invest in an outfit that you believe can only be worn on the 4th, I bring you the blue and white striped off the shoulder top. This top again features two of the key colors for this holiday, but it is a great summertime top that can be worn to other events like baseball games and at the beach. To make it 4th of July ready, add some red or blue necklaces/beads.  You can even wear it with shorts, tuck it into a button down skirt or pair it with white skinny jeans and wedges! The options are endless for this cute off the shoulder top.


This 4th of July make sure to be sure your own firework! Enjoy those hotdogs and hamburgers, illegal fireworks, and the memories that are sure to be made.

Game Day Fashions!

While it might be sad to think of summer coming to an end in a little over two months, it is never too early to start planning out your outfits for the first couple of football games! On September 4, your UT Longhorns will be taking on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at home in Darrell K. Royal Stadium.

Since the first game is in the beginning of summer, the heat will still be fairly killer for the first few games. However, as we get further into football season, it will begin to cool off in the fall months around the middle of October. So make sure your wardrobe includes some burnt orange and white fashions that can fit all of the temperatures that Texas has to offer from September to December, but lets first focus on the fashions for the hotter football games.


You can never go wrong with this burnt orange tank top that is accented with white embroidery on the bottom. For an even bigger plus, it features adjustable straps and a racerback design that is sure to keep you nice and airy on those hot humid game days. Pair it with these denim lace cut offs and tan lace up gladiators and you are sure to stand out in the crowd during every touchdown celebration.



You can even use some staple pieces like those denim shorts and tan lace ups over again and pair them with different tops and accessories. For example, pair them with this white open shoulder top with a burnt orange diamond print. This top is made with medium weight woven fabric that is soft, drapes well and has no stretch so what you see is what you get! Dress it up even more with some turquoise beads around the neck.


For those of you who like to take your game day fashion to a dressier level, here is the perfect burnt orange sleeveless dress with white embroidery. This high quality burnt orange dress features white embroidery, a drop ruffle hem and double open back. It is the perfect shade of burnt orange and goes nicely with your favorite pair of cowgirl boots.


This white cut out dress is also a good choice for a hot game day. It is lightweight and will keep you cool all game long so that you can cheer on your longhorns for the entire game. To dress it up further you can add some burnt orange jewelry like bracelets to add a little color to the overall outfit but that won't take away too much attention from the beautiful cut outs.


Now, some people may want to take a more laid back approach with their game day fashions. Longhorn Fashions has the perfect tees and rompers that will keep you comfortable and cool. Try out this burnt orange romper with pockets. The v neck design gives it a soft feminine touch. Or keep it really simple with this burnt orange short sleeved top with a round hem at the bottom. Matches perfectly with your favorite pair of jeans and boots. Trust me when I say that you will probably want to live in this tee.



Football games are the perfect way to let out your inner fashionista and express your true fashion finesse!  We cannot wait to see what outfits y'all choose and cannot wait to cheer on our guys as they bring home a win. Hook 'em horns! \m/

Sizzilin’ Summer Style the Longhorn Fashions Way

With the last round of finals ending and graduation ceremonies coming to a close, the sweet smells of summer are beginning to enter the air. Summer brings about a sense of freedom and rebellion that becomes present everywhere—even in fashion. Simple relaxation and fun are always a must in the summertime, but who says you can't have a little fun with your wardrobe over these next few sunny months?

For those relaxing days where you want to sit around in some comfy clothes or go for a rejuvenating jog (fast-ish walk in my case) around Lady Bird Lake, you can always turn to those cute but comfy T-shirts and tanks. Pair this Running Sucks tankYALL tank or LOVE shirt with some leggings and tennis shoes and you'll be set!


The X Games are coming to the Circuit of the Americas in a few days so you might be looking for something a little more dressy that still has a high comfort factor. Rompers are always a good outfit to turn to because they can be dressed up with bandannas, layered necklaces, hats and who could forget a pair of cute sandals as seen with this navy floral romper, burgundy romper, and light blue romper.




While summer has its relaxing time and carefree festivals, there are still
events like weddings and formal parties that require a little more pizzazz and the real wow factor when it comes to your outfit. Matching sets like this rust colored set are perfect for parties and can easily be matched with a pair of nude heels. This lace dress as well as the white eyelet dress look stunning in photographs and are a sure fire way of standing out.

 

Don't be afraid to take some risks with your fashion choices. Summer is the perfect time to experiment and see what works for you. Hopefully these quick Longhorn Fashions style tips will come in handy as your sizzilin' summer fun begins! Happy Summer! 😊

Invest in Vests

What's better than clothing that can be worn with a variety of pieces that can be carried over through the seasons? Nothing, if you ask us! That's why we love vests! Vests are perfect for layering over a t-shirt in the beginning of fall, and they transition great as it cools down as you can easily throw them over a sweater or coat! We love how popular vests are this season and can't stop expanding our vest wardrobe, so here are a few of our favorites!

This classic combination tops our list of favorite fall-time outfits! The simply chic denim shirt paired with a dainty and feminine burnt orange bralette and shearling leather vest creates the perfect balance. Throw these pieces on with leggings or dark jeans and any length boot or bootie for a quintessential  fall outfit! 





If you're a dress lover like we are, you're probably thinking of ways to continue wearing your favorite dresses without succumbing to frostbite. We also are trying to think of ways to continue to show our school spirit because who doesn't love burnt orange and white! We opted to throw this suede jacket over a white game-day dress with high socks or tights and boots to keep our spirit going while keeping us warm! Plus, the gem necklace adds a little extra shine, don't you think?!






Is there anything more warm and cozy than a plush warm vest? We definitely don't think so! We love throwing on a fluffy vest over a silky, chiffon piece to balance the outfit and surround ourself in comfortable textures! The combination of the deep burnt orange with the chocolate brown is easily accessorized with gold, white, or tan and screams fall to us!






Knits and fur define colder weather months style to us, so in efforts to stretch our closet a little more, we paired this knit-fur hybrid vest with a thin long sleeve dress! By accenting the grey in the dress with the grey in the vest, this outfit looks cohesive without being too matchy! To dress this look up, throw on some cowboy boots or heels and a little bling and you're good to go!





This bohemian inspired dress is perfect for fall on it's own, but is extra cozy with our fur and knit vest! The light brown ties in great with the intricate detailing of the dress creating a cohesive look! To add a little sparkle, we paired this outfit with our gold Texas necklace, but our Dursy necklace looks great and dainty with it as well!  All you need is boots or booties and you're looking boho chic! 






We can't wait to create new vest combination with these favorites! Let us know which is your favorite and show us how you styled it by tagging us on Instagram (@longhornfashions)! Stay warm!
