Planning Your Trip

While you may think Dallas is cowboy territory, its residents take fashion seriously. Whether visiting for business or a romantic weekend getaway, be sure to pack some of these essentials.

What to Pack

From Highland Park Village to Northpark Center, there are plenty of opportunities to shop in Dallas. Plus, this also happens to be the birthplace of Neiman Marcus. Bring an extra carry-on for the new clothes and accessories you won’t be able to resist.

Exploring the City

Dallas experiences all four seasons, with temperatures averaging 60 degrees in winter to up to 100 in the summer. Depending on when you visit, you’ll want to be well-equipped with weather-appropriate essentials.


  • Contrary to popular belief, Dallas is more preppy than cowboy. Men can’t go wrong with polo tees, button-down shirts, short and long chinos, and loafers.
  • For women, pack shorts, summery dresses and sandals, or light sweaters and booties for lower temperatures.
  • Don’t forget to pack a few pairs of jeans — they’re a perennial staple in this town.
Business Travel

If you’re in town for work, the same rules apply as they would in any other metropolis — even in summer, when you’ll be grateful for air conditioned buildings).


  • For men, a suit and tie are de rigueur. For a less formal look, skip the tie and choose a crisp white shirt instead.  
  • Women can opt for a sleek pencil skirt and blouse, or a sheath dress topped with a tailored jacket.
  • Accessorize with a pair of neutral pumps and understated jewelry. Men can add a pocket square and nice cuff links for an extra sharp look.
Evening Chic

The people of Dallas take dressing up very seriously, and that’s no more apparent than when the sun goes down. Whether you’re planning a classy dinner or a night on the town, go for bold.


  • Women should pack dresses, skinny jeans, flirty tops and heels. Then elevate your look with a statement necklace or chandelier earrings (or both).
  • For men, dark wash jeans, a good pair of dress shoes, a button-down shirt and a well-cut blazer make for a proper evening uniform.
  • Want to channel traditional Texas style? Throw in a few flashy belts.
