Fall Fashion

Memphis retailers are full of must-have menswear styles, leather pieces, polka dots,  and print designs — all in seasonal colors.  Structured tailoring and looser casual wear is still very chic. Gold jewelry will always be popular, but silver is the metallic choice on the rise and adds a cool factor to warm and luxurious hues. This time of year is always exciting and local fall fashion adds to the fervor.
