For the last few years, the Flyer has plunged headlong into fashion editorial spreads, conducting elaborate photo shoots with thousands of models, million-dollar production budgets, and featuring the most recent trends from local retailers. Or not.
This season, we thought we'd do something a little different. Given the economy, we wanted to focus on what fashionable Memphians already are wearing. Are you digging into the back of your closet and finding things you haven't worn in years? Are you shopping less? Accessorizing more? Buying knock-offs instead of designer clothes?
Armed with a camera and a notebook, we hit the streets in search of answers. Even in this economy, we found a lot of people who looked really good. Some mixed new with vintage, some said they scored at sales, and some told us the best places to go to get good deals.
Short shorts and maxi dresses might be big this summer, but personal style seems to be the most important trend of all.
