FALL AND COLOR CAN BE A PERFECT MARRIAGE

When the Fall and Winter months arrive, we often turn our attention to dark and earthy colors, but I want to challenge you to think “color” during these seasons.  It has been proven that bright colors positively boost your outlook when worn or experienced in our surroundings.

A great way to add color is to pair color with earthy and/or dark colors.  For example, the color gray looks fantastic with the color yellow.  Navy looks great with sea foam greens, and of course, black can be worn with anything.  Another way to add color is with graphic prints.  Choose graphic prints that tie into seasonal colors that you love.  Graphic prints add a instant impact that steer you away from hum-drum style.  And of course, scarves and accessories are always a great way to add color!

Next week I will be sharing new looks from the LeJeune Signature Collection, that will be full of color and striking stylish graphics.  In the meantime, here is a LeJeune graphic skirt in the works – –  full of color.  More to come!

LEJEUNE HOUSE OF FASHION EVOLVES INTO A NICHE BRAND

So excited about the growth of the fashion and beauty industry in Alabama.  Most importantly, I am thrilled to be part of, and a leader in the industry.  LeJeune House of Fashion (LHOF) has been around for over 20 years!  Boy time flies. There are exciting and new developments for the LHOF brand for 2016.  My small line of ladies clothing has evolved with a focus on 4 key design influences – – Vintage Inspired | Asian Inspired | Closet Staples | Ready-to-Wear – – I am coining it as my “LeJeune Signature Collection,”  the future is bright for the growing and emerging label.

Join me on this journey and see why the process always brings about new ideas and new ventures.
