Kate Puffer Vest by Lilly

The Lilly Pulitzer Kate Puffer Vest has a slimmer fit; it flatters without sacrificing warmth. Slenderizing grosgrain details at the waist highlight your smallest point, and the length hits perfectly at the hip to elongate your torso. Our favorite feature: the colorful Lilly printed lining. More colors available, $198 at The Pink Door. thepinkdoormemphis.com

Key West Aloe at Rêverie

Key West Aloe products just arrived in Memphis. This skincare company’s roots go back to a single moment when Aloe Vera was applied to a sunburn in 1971, long before the term SPF was invented. It worked so well on burned skin, they wondered, “What could it do continuously for healthy skin?” Key West Aloe was born. Check out this new line, including skincare products for men. Available at Rêverie Fine Linens & Down. Prices range from $12 to $36. reveriefinelinens.com
