From stores with special designer styles — think Rachel Zoe, Carmen Marc Valvo and Milly —  to high-end boutiques in Houston for the first time, we've got your guide for 10 places with can't-miss fashion finds. Super sales, the first pre-fall collection from a top cheap chic retailer, a stylish place for workout wear and a hip Austin apparel store that's opened its first Houston outpost are also part of the mix.

Here's where to shop right now in the Bayou City.

Tod's


The gleaming new Tod’s boutique at The Galleria features men’s and women’s lavish Italian shoes and other leather goods carried by the likes of Amal Clooney and Freida Pinto. In celebration of the store’s grand opening, a special limited edition Swarovski crystal Cape bag, can be yours (starting at a mere $ 2,265).

Topshop


The popular British fashion brand has been busy. Topshop Unique, its upmarket subsidiary, has launched its inaugural pre-fall collection, available at Nordstrom’s and at the Topshop boutique in The Galleria. Load up on fashion-forward, ready-to-wear pieces with a contemporary edge. Highlights include empire-line mini dresses, winged collar jackets and floor sweeping trousers in a range of textures, fabrics and styles.

Sloan/Hall


Everyone loves a sale, especially when you can get a deal on some stellar fashion finds. That’s exactly what you'll get at Upper Kirby lifestyle store Sloan/Hall. From now through the end of the month, save 40 percent on apparel from Nina Ricci, Isabel Marant, Fausto Puglisi and the likes. With the money you save, do some accessorizing in the fine jewelry section.

La Perla


Get ready to be seduced. Known for its sexy and luxurious unmentionables, Italian label La Perla gets a stand-alone boutique in The Galleria shopping mall, opening Saturday. Not your average underwear, the legendary lingerie store offers oh-so sensual, high-end women’s, men’s and accessories collections. 

KB Casuals


KB Kasuals brings its curated roster of contemporary wear to The Woodlands with a newly open 1,000 square-foot shop at Hughes Landing Shopping Center. Look for can't-miss items from brands like JoiePaige Denim and Nicole Richie’s House of Harlow

Six:02


Ladies, stay in shape this summer with active wear from Six:02. The offshoot of national chain, Foot Locker, boasts new locale at Willowbrook Mall and stylish head-to-toe workout gear from notables like Nike, Adidas, Asics and Reebok.

Just in time for Father’s Day gift shopping, Austin-based men’s apparel and lifestyle store Stag takes on the Houston market with a newly open outpost at Upper Kirby. Expect a well-edited, eclectic mix of goods including grooming essentials, home goods and contemporary clothing with a classic leaning from Ralph Lauren RRL, FilsonGitman Bros. and more.

Kohl's


Known for its fashion collaborations, including joint endeavors with Lauren Conrad (MTV’s The Hills) and Vera Wang, the retailer teams up with Michelle Smith of contemporary women's brand, Milly, for a limited edition and seaside-inspired lineup of dresses, skirts and tops in prints and in bold colors.

A Pea in the Pod


Moms-to-be are rockin’ a trendy boho-luxe look thanks to Rachel Zoe, stylist to the stars. Zoe joins forces with maternity store, A Pea in the Pod, for a cool lineup of California chic maxidresses, caftans, moto jackets, tailored pants and versatile tops. 

Dress Barn


While you normally don’t associate Dress Barn with designer duds, the chain has announced the addition of an in-store pop up, dubbed the Dressbar, stocked with items from familiar names like Carmen Marc Valvo, Heidi Weisel and Adrianna Papell — all available is sizes four to 16.
