Proof from the wise and silver-haired set that personal style advances with age
We live in a society that makes getting old seem like a fairly horrible thing. A recent Independent Living catalog we were somehow sent only solidified my own fears that I didn’t even know I had. But blogger Ari Seth Cohen knows much better – that life and style can get better with age and his lovely street style blog, Advanced Style is a fashionable argument for that fact. As he says: “Respect your elders and let these ladies and gents teach you a thing or two about living life to the fullest.” I could never imagine loosing my love for unique clothes and accessories as I get older (it might be genetic – my great Grandma King left this world in her feathered heeled slippers) and as the creative and intriguing men and women photographed here show, you can even get more fiercely independently awesome as time goes by. I personally see lilac hair and lots of huge necklaces – which I am already collecting.
