If you think New York and Los Angeles are the only fashion capitals worth visiting in the States, you're missing out on some seriously good shopping far from the coasts. Take a road trip through Texas, for instance, and you'd be a fool not to stop and at least browse some of the standout boutiques that have opened in the city in the past few years, as well as the luxury stalwarts that have been around for decades, like the flagship Neiman Marcus store on Main Street.
If you're visiting from out of town, make sure to check out some of the vintage haunts, too, like newbie Est. 1914, for some hand-tooled leather bags and pinup-worthy dresses. And fashion fans should flock to Forty Five Ten, the Texan retailer that OG street style star Taylor Tomasi Hill joined last year, bringing her inimitable eye for color, texture, and prints. Below, see five shopping destinations worth a trip to Dallas.
Forty Five Ten
You'll be forgiven for wanting to move into any one of Forty Five Ten's locations, packed as they are with covetable collections from Saint Laurent, Proenza Schouler, Monse, and more. Visit Taylor Tomasi Hill's curated boutique of emerging designers—called, what else, TTH—and you'll be hard-pressed to leave empty-handed.
