Believe it or not, Boulevard season is upon us. This year, the first Boulevard is Sept. 2, when the SMU Mustangs take on Stephen F. Austin. Traditionally, attendees wear all-white to the first Boulevard. Below are my top choices to find the perfect, stylish (and of course, cool as possible) ensemble for the first Boulevard of the season.
Zara is known for its trendy, fast-fashion pieces, such as the coveted off-the-shoulder top and wide-leg pants, neck tie scarves. The list goes on. Zara is also the go-to spot for staple pieces as well though. NorthPark Center’s Zara is full of white pieces that are sure to make a statement on the Boulevard.

Mockingbird Station’s Accents offers an array of on-trend clothing items, such as the floral printed romper, printed kimonos and conversational T-shirts. They also currently have a rack filled with all-white pieces.
A long white dress may be not be the best option for the Boulevard, as it’s easily susceptible to grass stains. But, you can tie two knots on the side to make the dress shorter and you are good to go. Not only do you have a nice Boulevard outfit, but also a dress that you can wear at an elegant event.
Thin straps, cotton fabric and exposed shoulders; this dress is the staple Boulevard outfit.
A white, thin-strapped top such as this one is not only ideal for the Boulevard, but for practically any event or occasion.
