Proof That Fashion Sense Does Get Better With Age

by Janelle

Ari Seth Cohen brings his blog, Advanced Style, to life today on  He has roamed the streets of New York City in search of the most stylish older women, speaking to “silver-haired confidence.” The short film features fashion icon Iris Apfel, “Off Broadway” owner Lynn Dell, and Alice Carey, fashion extraordinaire/writer. Filmmaker, Lina Plioplyte and Ari Cohen remind us to not be afraid of aging, proving that our personal styles will only advance in age…(hopefully). However, I don’t think I’d ever look as good as Iris does in those trademark owl spectacles. But, I can only hope that I will look as classy as these lovely ladies someday. 

Cohen says that he’s noticed so many young girls copying the innovative styles of older women, although it’s the older ones who wear it more naturally and with more confidence.  This adorable short film brings Cohen’s blog to a whole new level with interviews and fashion insights from the most advanced and stylish women of NYC.
