It's October in Dallas, and we're all hoping that soon we can bust out our cool-weather clothes. But before the temps drop, you might need to update your autumn wardrobe, and the following stores can help.
Abercrombie & Fitch
A total blast from the past, right? However, this brand is making a comeback with classic clothing you'll love. Goodbye loud logos and hello subtle sex appeal, as A&F's latest line is all about rich fall colors and comfy neutrals. We may have picked up a couple of these flannels, a poncho, and this delicious skirt from the Galleria Dallas store.
AIX Armani Exchange
This store is reopening in its original spot at NorthPark Center on level one near Dillard's, offering shoppers a modern wardrobe that only Giorgio himself could envision. Whether you are looking for a classic work look or a something a little more edgy for a night on the town, you can find it all here.
The Frye Company
Get close to this new level one store in NorthPark Center and you can smell the intoxicating scent of leather. As the only Frye store in Texas, this handsome footwear and accessories outpost is sure to fit right into a market that values quality leather goods. These Parker over-the-knee boots boots are everything right now.
Head to the company's swanky new shop on Henderson Avenue now so you will have plenty of time to score your custom goods before the cold weather arrives. This season's highlights include travel wools, custom overcoats, and seasonal fall fabrics. We are particularly fond of the Hudson and Madison suits that are constructed from light Loro Piana wools.
The iconic brand has reopened at NorthPark Center between Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, bringing a fresh feel to fall. We are loving the Back to Block Collection, with its vintage varsity and sport-inspired style. It's impossible to walk into the shop without picking up one of these chevron sweaters.
This brand is best known for its high-performance dress shirts made from fabric that wicks away moisture and folds, fits, and wears like none other. (Houston Texans star J.J. Watt is a fan.) New fall arrivals include dress shirts starting at $125; $10 of each one sold between October 25 and October 31 is being donated to the Dallas VA hospital for breast cancer support.
Polo Ralph Lauren
When this store opens this month at NorthPark Center, it will be the only Polo Ralph Lauren in Dallas-Fort Worth. Located between Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus, this classic American brand carries clothing, accessories, and items for the home. We dig this leather hunting jacket.
Known primarily for its light and breezy Hawaiian-printed shirts, this store has a lot more to offer than summer clothing. Be prepared for a little retail therapy when it comes to NorthPark Center this month on level one. If you try on this Larson sweater coat, you will buy it.
Traffic Los Angeles
German fashion brand Boulezar showcases its "comfy couture" line for the first time in the United States, from now through December at Traffic LA. Boulezar is an exclusive casual-wear brand known for its expert tailoring and premium fabrics. Each garment is handmade in Germany.
