my thoughts exactly...I cant really see how debating which city (Houston, Dallas) dresses better really even matters...franky both cities are woefully lacking in the fashion dept. I think Houstonians dress more plainly...although when North Texans dress bad -- They dress BAD! I think all of the northern/northeastern part of Texas struggles with fashion...I have seen some unspeakable fashion faux pas in that region...I think because Houton people dress very plainly/safely, they dont run quite the risk of making as many of those mistakes...Never the less, imo neither city is anything to write home about fashionwise

Dallas is one of the most trendy places in the US. They keep up with fashion trends religiously. Houston isnt trendy at all. Im not saying thats a good thing. Im not a trendy person so it doesnt matter to me, but Dallas is a more fashionable city than Houston.

Dressing trendy and fashionable can look crazy sometimes. It does to me alot of times. But your Dallasite will go spend $500 on a pair of brand name jeans if its the thing to do. Your Houstonian would be happy with a $20 pair from Ross.

Well...it depends on who youre talking. Not to make this a race thing, but a lot of blacks in Houston tend to be very trendy (as far as urban culture goes). It's mostly the rest of Houston that's real laid back. But down in Houston you have a lot of people who will spend their whole pay check on one outfit.

Hair also seems to be a big deal down there. I've seen some real nice weaves down in H-town lol. No, but seriously, when I moved down to SE Texas to go to school, I was impressed with how put together the black girls were. Since I had just left Central Texas where people actually are "underdressed" (people would come to school in pajama pants...country, I know)

You have high maintenance people in Houston just like in Dallas. People down here will rush to the store to buy the latest new shoes and accessories. The most fashionable people I've seen here are from California, but their style doesn't work right with this type of climate. People put on all these scarfs, shades, leggings, boots, with big coats in 90 degree weather with 89% humidity. You might look stylish, but you will be very uncomfortable.

Both are quite up to date in fashion I guess. I think Dallas is the more high maintenance in terms of fashion of the 2 though.

Dallas is one of the most notably fashion oriented cities in the country. I am from Atlanta and can vouch for this. DC is very conservative in terms of fashion and such due to the politics that the system buzzes around. Atlanta is fashionable just not as much as Dallas is known. I think people just like putting down Dallas for whatever personal reason they may have toward the area. I don't even live there and I'm taking up for it.

* Its kind of like in high school when all the kids feel they have to put the kid that thinks they are better than everyone in their place.

Really?...I dont know about this one...Im afraid Im going to have to respectfully agree to disagree on this one....like seriously, the last time I was in Dallas and Northeast Texas it looked as though there had been a serious fashion catastrophe in the area...No disrespect to North/Northeast Texas intended, as I know that the region has several things going for it...but fashion isnt one of them from what we've witnessed...and that became very apparent to me, during the times that I visited.

My cousin from Dallas and I (From Northeast Texas) often laugh and even make fun of the ailing fashion sense in Dallas/Northern Texas. He too now lives in Houston and immediately noticed a difference in the way people dressed back in Dallas...The style of most Houstonians, while not flashy, is presentable. Im not saying that everyone in North Texas is a bad dresser, but honestly, things were looking pretty bad the last time I was there, fashionwise. Some of it just looked flat out tacky and/or outdated. Much of it was flatly inexcusable to tell the truth. But that was just our experience based on him (my cousin) being raised there, and me visiting every so often. I think Houston's fashion sense could be interpretted as dull, but I do think its safer to be plain and dull, than to be gaudy and tackily dressed, which can be a recipe for disaster stylewise.

The thing with Houston is the climate doesn't allow for lots of fashion styles. We can't walk around in fur coats, big boots, and all that because we'd burn the hell up. No city along the gulf coast is really fashionable. I wouldn't consider Miami fashionable myself.

you got that right! Thats probably a better way of putting it...The people in Houston take a very minimalist approach to fashion because they have to...even in the winter, Houston weather does not always require extra layers of clothing, or coats. I will say that what Houston residents dont spend on clothes they spend on cars and such.
