As the weather cools, it's time to swap out t-shirts for sweaters and shorts for pants. If you're looking to update your fall wardrobe, your first stop should be Franklin Street.

Here are a few of our favorite shops such as Julian's, Uniquities, Bevello.


A Chapel Hill fashion icon since 1942, Julian's continues its tradition of providing quality fashions for both men and women. A refined style is evident in each item offered here whether it's a tie created in Carolina blue or a sweater to keep out the chill while you cheer on the Tar Heels on those cool North Carolina nights. Of course, made-to-order suits are their particular expertise, so if you have a special occasion on the horizon, you're in no better hands than at Julian's.


Animal prints abound as the season's frontrunner at Uniquities. Whether you're looking to refresh your wardrobe with a soft fluttery blouse to complement a pair of jeans, ankle boots for stepping out in style, or a sweater to wrap up in, you'll welcome these refined prints to highlight your solid pieces.


You'll find an eclectic mix of trendy and classic pieces for a variety of occasions. Go ahead and revisit the best of the '80s in Bevello's shirred polka dot mini dress. It's the perfect blend of contemporary and timeless style. If you already have the outfit you want and just need a bit of an update, check out the jewelry collection. You may want to add a black and crystal necklace to your ensemble, feathered gem earrings, or a simple pair of hoops.
