Dallas isn't New York, London, Milan or Paris. And, y'all, it doesn't have to be. 

Dallas is forming its own unique fashion identity, and these seven fashionable folks are leading the way. We asked them to divulge their closet must-haves, favorite shopping destinations and more. You'll want to remember these names.

Meet Lucy Wrubel: She's a DJ, mom and stylish world traveler. When she's not goofing around with fellow fashionista and friend Reed Robertson in the Forty Five Ten dressing room, Wrubel is often in the DJ booth at one of the boutique's private parties. 

For Wrubel, fashion is art. She'll display her latest shoe purchase on her coffee table before even wearing them, and she loves to play around with pops of color from funky jewelry.  High-end items are often paired with affordable finds, whether its a Madewell basic tee or a one-of-a-kind vintage piece. 

Closet must-haves: Gucci shoes, denim, colorful accessories and Mexican dresses 

Where she shops: vintage shops; Forty Five Ten (1615 Main St., Dallas)

Dallas-based electro-pop artist Lev (a.k.a. Holly Peyton) is all about vintage stores and thrifting. She loves playing around with pieces from different decades, as well as adding modern touches. "I truly believe in the fact that one man's junk is somebody else's treasure. It's cool to wear something nobody else would have," she says. Lev usually goes for a natural nude and black fashion palette but isn't afraid to add bold color at times. Alongside her friend Hannah Francis, Lev also started her own online curated vintage shop, Drifters Vintage.

Closet must-haves: New Mexican-style rings, leather boots and a vintage Liz Claiborne suit

Where she shops: Dolly Python (1916 N. Haskell Ave., Dallas) and Feather's Boutique (1700 B South Congress Ave., Austin)

For Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Brice Butler, he says he goes for outfits that are classy and comfortable. "When I'm playing sports, I don't have a problem with wearing louder colors, but when dressing up for a fashion show or game day, I always go for classy and not flashy," Butler said. That means outfits in shades of black, burgundy and dark blue. On game day, once he's off the field, he typically wears trousers, a white shirt and an overcoat or sports jacket. From New York to Paris, you might spot Butler at fashion shows for Balmain or Berluti.

Closet must-haves: Biker jacket and white button-down

Brands he loves: Pyer Moss, Berluti, Balmain and Rick Owens

Combine fashion with theater and you'll understand Reed Robertson's style. Robertson has a history in musical theater and is now a women's ready-to-wear specialist at Forty Five Ten. He first fell in love with fashion through costume designing: "I love putting together outfits because they can say so much about someone's personality without even speaking," he says. "Everyday is a different costume, and I'm a character." 

Notice anything about Robertson's photo? Yep: Besties Robertson and Wrubel each have Gucci platform shoes. 

Robertson has also worked at Diane von Furstenberg in Highland Park Village.

Closet must-haves: Hats, Gucci platform shoes and anything his partner T.J. Griffin gifts him

Brands he loves: Calvin Klein, Gucci, Adam Lippes and Sacai
