A lifelong fashion lover and active volunteer in the philanthropic community, Kerry Brennan has seen trends come and go (and come back again) over the years. When it comes to evening wear, she sticks to sophisticated black suits, tuxedos, skirts and vests, but goes all out with eclectic accessories, especially jewellery and hats.
“Coco Chanel said you should always take one thing off before you leave the house,” Brennan says. “As much as I love her, we don’t really agree on that. If anything, I’d add a piece.”
Style is very much a family affair for Brennan — she picked it up from her mother and passed it on to her own grown children. Even a casual day is an opportunity to bring a little glitz and glamour into her look, and she dresses up no matter the occasion.
“When I’m put together, I feel better about myself,” Brennan says. “If you have a hat, red lips and sunglasses, you can go anywhere.”
