These Older Women Instagram Stars Prove You Can Be A Fashionista At Any Age

by Sarah Boyle

We have new Instagram style inspirations for your feed, and the subjects put the extra in extraordinary. These over-60 fashionistas have active Instagram style accounts, where they flaunt their confidence and flair to a mass following, ranging from younger women to their peers, The New York Times reports.

With witty handles such as @silver_isthenewblonde and @mywrinklesaremystripes, these older women are shaking up our ideas of who fashion is meant for. They represent something that is rarely seen in the media: older women who express their beauty and confidence. In an age where many models or fashion companies take to Instagram to promote their brand, it is refreshing to see older women take up the trend, helping to make a more inclusive and exciting fashion sphere. These women are beautiful and have a great sense of fashion, demonstrating the fact that older ladies can wear vibrant, sexy, and avant-garde clothing as well, if not better, as any young person.

Dorrie Jacobson, the face behind the Instagram account @seniorstylebible, recently spoke out about the media attention she is receiving, stating that she wishes that news outlets would stop using the word “Grandma” to reference her. She wrote on Instagram, “At the age of 83, I’m so much more than that. I’m a model, a writer, and a pro-aging activist.” Jacobson rejects the idea that older women can only be categorized by having grandchildren, stating how she “work[s] tirelessly to promote the idea that older women can remain cool, stylish and relevant.”
