2018 Resolution: Be Elegant

2018 is here, a time when we at least toss around a few ideas about how to improve things in our lives. How about this for a 2018 Resolution: Be Elegant!

What does that mean? Every day, you choose something to put on your lower half, and something else to put on your upper half. Every day, your choices reflect your inner self. Choosing to be elegant shows self-respect as well as intention both toward yourself and the world around you.

At MaJe Gallery, Easy Elegance is our goal. We are constantly on the lookout for elegant styles that are easy to wear so you can look your best with confidence. Here are some of the first things we found for 2018.

Be Elegant – Jackets

Our weather patterns tend toward chilly, so our closets reflect that since they are at least half full of various weights of jackets, sweaters and wraps. This is the most crucial piece of clothing because you wear it most often, so it plays the largest role in defining your personality to the world. Which, if any, of these two best suits you?
