Your DFW Weekend Lineup: Business Networking Events, 2016 Bentley Mulsanne, State Fair Concert, Day and Night Parties

Whew! Everything is going on this weekend it seems, and there’s something for every professional who is about that business and lifestyle. But before we dive into all the good stuff, the Fall season means gradually bringing out the layers in your clothing style as the temperatures slowly drop. With all the business functions and upscale events coming up, its good to take your wardrobe to the next level. Two Dallas-based style blogs on Instagram can help: @BruvaJC for men’s style, and @CurvemonstersGlam. So fellas, if you need just a tiny bit of help in tweaking your style, be sure to it out. And ladies, if your man or male family members need help, you now know what to do! And of course, ladies do check out the @CurveMonsters ( site for the latest Fall styles, and if you think your style might help others out, DM or message them.

And now for the weekend lineup:
