September is like Christmas for the high-fashion world with fashion week kicking off in New York, Fashion’s Night Out and the mega September fashion magazine issues. For retailers, this is the start of their busiest season requiring them to increase inventory on items like trench coats, pea coats, blazers and leather jackets. Whether you are shopping for the latest trend, stocking up on staples or getting your children ready for school, these five retailers have a great selection of products and price points.

Jeffrey Atlanta is one of the few boutiques in Atlanta that truly has a New York City feel. With to-die-for heels on one side of the store and designer clothing on the other, prepare to be dazzled.
