boasts. Fashionistas (and those just looking for a fresh look) will appreciate the stylish boutiques a savvy shopper will find dotting downtown Denton. Browsing these shops for quirky
finds makes for a fun day full of “Dentoning” and guarantees you’ll experience things, places, people and fashion that is undeniably exclusive to this city. The fashion scene here is one-of-a-kind, where the “local look” is influenced by western wear and Denton’s uniquely independent spirit. Explore these can’t-miss shops and see for yourself!
