As the fabulous Coco Chanel said – “Fashion fades, only style remains the same“. With that in mind, I have found myself slightly obsessed with stylish women of a certain age lately. A stylish young girl walking down the street is all well and good, but a woman rocking grey (or purple rinsed) hair, pearls and huge sunglasses is fierce. For a better understanding of what I’m talking about, check out the blog Advanced Style and their upcoming documentary. Here is the trailer.
AK’s father once told me that it’s easy for a 20-something woman to look well, she has nature on her side. It’s aging that is a true test of beauty and style. These women are testament to that. The mastermind behind the project is New York photographer Ari Seth Cohen – he roams the streets of New York looking for the most stylish and creative older folks.
In Cohen’s words, “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.”
