If you don't think the city of Jackson has style just like other big cities in the U.S., take a look around you. Many Jacksonians have great style, whether they're at the Mississippi Museum of Art's Museum After Hours, Fondren's First Thursday or just walking around the city. A few locals let the Jackson Free Press take photos of them, and they described their style in three words to us.
