Friday Femmes: The Ladies of Advanced Style


Do you know the blog/book/documentary/phenomenon that is Advanced Style?

Shout out.  Always.  To Ari Seth Cohen, who started all of this.  He highlights the fabulous women (and men) that he encounters in NYC and elsewhere. 

Here is what he has to say in the blog’s *about* section:

“My name is Ari Seth Cohen. 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.”

Here is a link and images to a post I particularly like:  “If You Want to Dress Like An Advanced Style Lady”:


This project inspires and leaves me feeling refreshed and optimistic about the aging process.  Especially the part that encourages me to not take fashion too seriously.  It’s just color and texture and a bit of cloth.  No big deal.  

That being said, why wouldn’t you GO BIG or GO HOME???
