Howdy, Y’all! Our Favorite Tex-cessories for Him & Her
We’re heading down to Austin, Texas this weekend to attend the year’s most talked about technology, film and music festival, South by Southwest (also known as SXSW). Even though it’s my 8th year to attend (remember, I’m a Texan, born-and-raised), it’s still one of my favorite events of the year. It blends the creative arts together in a fun and informative way. Oh, and the parties don’t suck, either.
While I was coming up with my packing list, I enlisted the help of our resident stylist, Misty, to help me find some Texas-meets-Tech items that I could bring to town. We found so many that we had to share! In fact, we ended up making two complete outfit boards to help inspire all of you cowboys and cowgirls who might be making a similar trip to the south soon.
As with any style idea we post here on Brit, the concepts below beautifully blend the geek and chic aesthetics in a way that’s not overdone. And, the Texas flair? You can always rely on me to bring some of that, y’all! A fringe cowboy fanny pack? Yes, please.
Anything with fringe “goes” in Texas. And this sleeveless vest will keep you cool in the warm sun.
As mentioned above, who *doesn’t* want a fringe cowgirl fanny pack? Great for holding everything from your iPhone to your lipstick.
Gorgeous, simple, and great for layering on the Tex-cessories.
More expensive than the $19 pair at the Apple store, but how awesome would it be to rock a sterling silver earphone necklace! We’re thinking about a possible DIY here…
For those who want to feel like a cowgirl, but can’t make the full transition to the more classic Lucchese or Old Gringo boots.
A bit of tribal fun to adorn your frock.
We are all about the feathers these days. They are a great way to add some natural texture to balance all the cowgirl you’ve got going on.
