Holiday 2017 Fashion Favorites


The smell of cinnamon. When I start burning that candle or simmering my loose "recipe" concoction of sweet holiday-esque spices passed down from generation to generation, I know it's finally Christmas time! If you know me, you know I love candles - especially the Christmasy marshmallow fireside, vanilla sugar cookie, pine, and spiced apple cider - and I LOVE pulling out those candles as soon as fall starts showing it's colors.  What's your favorite kick-off to Christmas? Everyone has that one thing that signals the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year.  I'm not a fan of the cold, and I shiver at anything below 60-65 degrees. The only thing that keeps me happy through the dreaded temperature change is the influx of amaaaaaazing fall and winter wardrobe options. It's literally the only thing that gets me through the freezing temps and often dreary weather. Fall clothes are arguably the cutest collections across the board. The main difference between fall and winter wardrobes are the additions of specialty fabrics, glitter, and the excuse to add over-the-top statement pieces to your collection. (But, girl, you know I don't need an excuse... I'm extra just going to the grocery store... ;) ) We have holiday parties, NYE cocktail events, and finally tons of reasons to wear all of those special pieces that never see the light of day tucked into the veryyyy back of closets around the world.  Below I have attached a few collections that are perfect for all of your December soirees. Layers are key (especially for those of us in Tennessee.... imagine my most dramatic eye roll ever) to keeping your outfits fresh and making the most out of your wardrobe. Plus it never hurts saving a little money! For more information on products and pieces seen below, contact us using the CONTACT tab, and we'll fill you in on all the info we can find. Hope you enjoy these collections as much as I have enjoyed gathering them together!  Merry Christmas from all of us at Jill Brooks Beauty and Salon South!

Gemstone and mauve tones are the perfect compliment to Fall + Winter ‘17/18. The rich, warm tones brighten your complexion, increase youthfulness and add a little color to a dreary winter day. A snugfitting silhouette under your favorite duster or ankle-length outerwear keeps you from looking bulky. Top with your favorite floppy hat and wine lipgloss for extra shine.

Looking for new date night attire? Girls night out? Black is always the perfect canvas. First, find a killer leather jacket - I love this studded statement piece that speaks for itself. A good general rule of thumb is that the more stones, studs and bobbles on the focus item, the fewer you’ll want on the others (including shoes, belts, pants, etc.) For this look, we paired the jacket with skinny black pants, a leather camisole, OTK boots and stacked chokers. 



A HUGE trend for fall is metallics. High-shine, matte, brushed... no matter the finish, metallics are taking over wardrobes across the country. I’ve really become a big fan of rose gold over the last few years (I know, I know..... along with every other girl in America. Stop judging me. 😜), but I’ve been obsessing with mixed metals and updating them year after year.  Pair an adorable metallic top with your favorite jeans, heels and a clutch and voila! You have a look that can easily transition from day to night, summer to fall. Need help choosing your metals and the combos? Shoot me a message by clicking the CONTACT tab with your questions!

If you’re like me, I leave tons of gorgeous cocktails on the rack afraid that I will have nowhere to wear them. For the chosen few purchased, they typically get shoved to the back of the closet never to be seen again after just one wear. Having multiple looks, options and event ideas planned in advance will ensure you get the most bang for your buck and that gorgeous new cocktail stays front and center in your closet - right where it belongs! 

If you’ve followed my blog, you knoooooooow I’m obsessed with off-the-shoulder anything, and this little velvet number is just fabulous. Pair with pumps, your favorite fur and retro glam waves for a perfectly elegant Christmas Eve dinner. You could even meet the new boyfriend’s family in this look. For your second look - a New Year’s Eve celebration - trade out those pumps for some strappy stilettos, a stunning statement necklace, textured high pony and ultraglam lashes to ring in the new year with style.
