Our style ambassador, Katherine Penfold, loves the idea of reinventing your eyestyle and she has graciously given us her tips and advice on how to do so. First tip: “I try to match my glasses to a smaller accent in my look, not my largest colour or item of clothing I’m wearing. This way, it helps “pop” that smaller accent a little more, and creates a balance.”
How do glasses impact your style choices? I love black, whites and greys and not much colour. I find that my different frames allow me to keep within the colours I love because the glasses are my accent.
Why are glasses such an amazing fashion accessory? You can change your look so quickly with a change of frames. Whether I’m feeling cozy, bold and outgoing, or have my business-woman “face” on, there are a pair of glasses that complete my outfit better than any necklace or ring.
What’s your number one New Year Resolution? To create the best me possible for 2015 – personally and career-wise.
How did your career in the music industry begin? When I was 14 I began singing Folk/Celtic music with my teacher (who was also a Maritimer), and our band toured around; teaching me things I would never have learned in school. It set me up perfectly to run my own music career.
What do you love most about being in the music industry? It’s such a broad landscape of concepts, choices and opportunities. There’s no one-way to get my name out there, which means I can be myself, be as creative as I want, and go with my gut when it comes to the future… it’s looking very promising!
EYESTYLE #1 | COLOURFUL SOPHISTICATION
A lot of my style is monochrome, but I have a secret love for fuchsia and purple. These glasses give me the perfect opportunity to bust out a vivacious colour that lets me put some bold lipstick on as well.
EYESTYLE #2 | MINIMALIST EDGE
My go-to look: Blacks, whites and greys… these glasses fit into my wardrobe so perfectly. Plus, they’re big and over-stated: a style I can’t get enough of right now.
EYESTYLE #3 | VINTAGE CASUAL
I love these frames because they match what I’ve created in my home: natural colours, calm and cozy atmosphere.
