If you want to wear something no one else has, head to Henry & June. Opened in July, it carries lines like Rachel Comey and Henrik Vibskov and is an oasis for fashion lovers who favor craft over commerce. Shoppers can get an espresso at the coffee bar before browsing a mix of perfectly cut trousers, oversized tops, and color-block dresses from independent designers who prefer a monochromatic, neutral palette to the cotton candy–colored prints that typically define Southern style. Most items run $300 to $700, so go for statement pieces, not staples. 784 North Highland Avenue, henryandjuneatl.com
