Ready to Wear: 10 Best Fashion Boutiques Worth Checking Out in Dallas

Dallas has a reputation for being a shopaholic’s paradise. After all, it’s home to more shopping centers per capita than any other city in the country. But fashion-savvy locals know that the best retail therapy experience can usually be had at Dallas' more unique, independently owned stores.  

Need to freshen up your wardrobe? Then head to Elements, an upscale shop in University Park that carries the trendiest women’s apparel of the season by both well-known names and hot up-and-coming designers. Also popular with fashion folk is Abi Ferrin’s namesake flagship in Uptown, which is known for its stylish collection of versatile clothing that fit and flatter women of all ages and body types. Speaking of designer duds, Vintage Martini is a local favorite for gently used clothing, shoes, handbags and more by the likes of Chanel, Vuitton and Prada.

And, we haven’t left out the guys, either. Undoubtedly one of Dallas’ coolest men's stores, DLM Supply offers a killer mashup of hard-to-find clothing labels, shoes, accessories, grooming items, gifts and gadgets under one roof.
