By Jordan Staggs

Even if you couldn’t make it to New York for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this past February, you can still take home some of the hottest looks for fall 2011. Destin Commons, the Emerald Coast’s premier outdoor shopping mall and entertainment center, has all the clothing, shoes, and accessories you need to look runway ready all year long.

This summer, Destin Commons has welcomed four new tenants—all making their debut on the Emerald Coast—to bring shoppers affordable style and fun nights out with friends and family.
