Dallas Street Style and Street Art

“The great thing about Dallas is there’s no paparazzi.”

~Jessica Simpson

When I first went to Dallas, I didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t know much about the city, other than the fact that it was in Texas and was apparently a fashion location. Oh, and barbeque and Tex-Mex, of course.

Word on the street is that Dallas is quickly becoming an unexpected fashion location, with various top designers deciding to come to Dallas as their first stop in the U.S. So I was curious to observe the city, and the state, since it was my first time in Texas.

Fashion and appearances being important to Dallas is an understatement. Fashion is everything in Dallas. Everyone we encountered talked about fashion, be it in boutiques or on the street or at events.

The street style is amazing here. Everyone has their own personal style, but, as a group of guys told us, “If you aren’t going to dress to impress, don’t even leave the house.”

And stylish they were. So I observed the fashions; the city is definitely fashion forward and fashion conscious.  Even in casual attire, everyone seemed relatively well put together and conscious of his or her look.

But Dallas flies under the radar. It doesn’t get the hype that New York or L.A. or even Miami get. But maybe it should. And it appears as though it is starting to be noticed, both domestically and internationally. It will be interesting to see where how the city progresses in this respect. And, soon enough, there may be paparazzi in Dallas.

But while I was there, I also took a moment to take in the sites. The architecture was beautiful.  And the street art and sites, were… interesting. We happened upon the Dallas BIG sign and did a photo op there. And we took photos at the Eye (where, naturally, we felt like someone was watching us).

It is such a huge city, and I didn’t have a chance to explore everything. But I loved the food (specifically queso), the style, the architecture, and the people. I look forward to coming back and exploring a bit more. While I don’t think it’s a city I would live in, I will definitely be back.


I am a lawyer. I am a journalist. I am a writer. I am a photographer. And I love to travel.

  1. I would love to go to Dallas. I’ve never been to Texas (where everything is done in super size) and I think I would have a great time. I read some style bloggers from Dallas and I likes!

  2. Looooove me some queso!

    I haven’t been to Dallas but it is definitely on my list of places to visit soon. I had no idea the fashion scene there was booming like this.

  3. I have been to Dallas and loved it down there I was surprised at how nice everyone was. I am use to that here in the south east but wasn’t expecting that over there.

  4. Wow! I have been missing out! I love art and fashion and can not believe that all of that was there. Thank you for sharing. I will have to visit some of these places next time I fly out there.
