Landmark Looks

This month’s Style reflects the City Guide itself, as we use some of Memphis’ best-known locations as fashion backdrops. The looks cleverly mix summer and early-fall styles, and showcase current offerings at several fine local boutiques.


Lounging Around

With a view of Tom Lee Park and the river beyond, our models relax in styles both dramatic and understated.

On Her: Tobacco knit dress by Piazza Sempione, $625; red coral necklace by Brave, $275; both from James Davis in Laurelwood. Stacked tortoise platform sandals by BCBGeneration from Peria, $118.
