Get the season's hottest trends from buzz-worthy boutiques around town.

For style mavens, "the most wonderful time of the year" is arguably autumn, when the weather allows for fall runway trends to make their way to the streets. As a city that's collectively as stylish as any other major metropolis, we bring you 11 of the season’s most coveted trends in fashion—and where to get them now in Dallas-Fort Worth. Our list kicks off with the Western-chic trend, because, after all, we are in Texas. Happy shopping, y'all. 

1. Cowboy Couture

Western-chic influences found throughout fall runway shows offered a new-age nod to essences of the American West. Similarly, bespoke boot boutique Miron Crosby embodies thoughtful design with a decidedly Texan flair. Dallasites are drooling over the luxe materials, hand-tied tassels and vibrant colors—plus the option to custom-build the perfect pair. (Other top spots to add some Western style to your wardrobe: Maverick Western Wear in the Fort Worth Stockyards, Wild Bill's in downtown Dallas)  Little B boots, $1,295, available at Miron Crosby in Highland Park Village

2. Graphic Designs

Designers let the clothes speak for themselves quite literally this season, from bold slogans at Ashish to conscious messages for a cause at Prabal Gurung. The trend trickles into accessories with simple designs that still make a statement. With little more than a nondescript logo and bold type, Moschino’s ready-to-wear crewnecks and casual wear speak volumes. Off -White and other edgy designers join Moschino in a well-curated inventory of on-trend apparel at Traffic LA at the Joule Hotel.  Moschino crewneck sweatshirt, $275, Traffic LA at the Joule

Womenswear label Veronica Beard has found a home in Highland Park Village. Expect impeccably tailored dresses and blouses, a new collection of ultra-slimming denim and a luxe line of lust-worthy flats and boots at VB’s first store outside NYC. To say we're excited the camo trend is back would be an understatement, but you'll find statement pieces galore—leopard smoking slippers, vintage accessories and the like—at this edgy boutique. Available online or via the new Veronica Beard boutique in Highland Park Village
