Within these pages you’ll find the latest fashion, beauty, home décor and high-tech trends from our experts. I love the holidays, and this festive issue of WILLOWBROOK STYLE showcases the very best of the season. Our fashion pages are filled with inspiration to help you dazzle this year, and we’ve included a Holiday Gift Guide filled with ideas for everyone on your list.

CASUAL COMFORT Whether you’re headed to the office or out to watch the kids play, it’s easy to look great and feel your best. A pair of burgundy jeans paired with a white shirt and navy button-up, leather belt and a pair of boots are easy to put together and wear. Remember to take a hat in case the weather doesn’t cooperate and if you’ve got a workout planned, a good quality sports bag is a must.

Style Icon For a look that goes from the office to the cocktail party or event, you can’t go wrong with a classic grey blazer, crisp white shirt and a bold tie. So easy to freshen the whole look with a pinstripe shirt and a contrasting tie, too. Finish with a pair of black trousers, a black belt, a tasteful handkerchief and a pair of good leather shoes and you’re ready for anything. If you want to make the look more relaxed, just take off the tie and switch out the trousers for a pair of good jeans.
