Fall Fashion in Memphis

Black-and-white combos and sharp tailoring set the mood for the season.

Fall fashion always ushers in change as the temperatures drop. The air is crisp, the sun shines a little brighter, and the moon glows a little more intensely. The earth tilts on its axis, shortening the days and extending the nights. Nothing represents this dichotomy better than the biggest trends for fall fashion — black-and-white combos, sharp tailoring, and the mixing of masculine and feminine details.

Our models were selected from a series of Peabody Rooftop Party model calls, and we really got a lively bunch this year! Everybody worked hard, played hard, and showed off some really great clothes — all from local retailers. It's fall fashion, done Flyer style.
