We’re bombarded at every turn with images of gorgeous young things wearing the latest designer clothes, but how often do we stop to look at stylish older women? New Yorker Ari Seth Cohen does exactly that. He’s like The Sartorialist for women of advanced years. How great is that?
He says: I roam the streets of New York looking for the most stylish and creative older folks. Respect your elders and let these ladies and gents teach you a thing or two about living life to the fullest. Advanced Style offers proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age.
Are you inspired? How can we not be? I love that these women have such a great sense of self and style, and that it seems to be an important part of who they are, as well as being key to them living their best life. All this regardless of what society expects or rather, doesn’t expect of women of a ‘certain age’.
