Advanced Style

Thursday, April 21, 2011

"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." {ari seth cohen}

I can't begin to explain to you how much I love this website (that I found thanks to Pistachio). Ari Seth Cohen takes street style photography to a new level as he photographs older adults for his blog, Advanced Style. I'm pretty passionate about older adults (my whole social work other life) so I get a huge kick out of the interviews he does with some of his subjects. HUGE kick. I love this. (I sent him some questions that I was so curious about but he has not responded. Lame, mr. cohen, lame )

I'm proud to be ___ years old <- love this!

And my new favorite style related quote: "Fashion says 'me too' but style says 'only me'" - Lynn Dell on an interview video for Advanced Style

Enjoy it!

What a brilliant website!!! My grandpa is one of the most stylish people I know. He wears those amazing suits, always polished shoes and bow ties even for a walk in a park. Long time ago he told me that its important to dress well each day as you dont know who you might meet meet that day, maybe the queen! (He is British) haha.. Have a great one, darling

The two pictures you posted are great pics. Very stylish older people. I aim to look that good as an elder!

very married said...

my grandma has the loveliest sense of vintage style ever. i find myself often thinking that i would like to borrow one of her blouses and then wondering if i would be able to pull it off.

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

this is amazing! my grandma was the most stylish person. she's still a huge influence on me.

thanks for sharing!

Love it. Some just think because you're older you are worthless, not interesting anymore, and just blah...I think it's actually just the opposite. :)

Monique said...

I'm fascinated by stylish older folks...off to check out this site. So great you do social work!

Lenore @ Lather. Write. Repeat. said...

I just saw an amazingly stylish older woman the other day and my sis and I agreed we would strive to be that chic!

I posted a while back pictures that I had found from when my grandparents were young. They were stunning!!!

Bad Taste Toast said...

That's so cool! I saw an old man on a local fashion blog the other day and he was so chhic! I love that old men go for this oldschool gentleman style, especially the rather posh ones here in Düsseldorf. Or the cute grandpa style with checkered pants and cardigans :)

Dancing Branflake said...

This is so cool! But he really needs to respond to you. I don't think he realizes how awesome and famous of a blogger you are. Get on it Mr!

Love this style....I want to be old and graceful like that! Love your Rome photo's!
Happy Easter!

Hollie said...

It's always great to see stylish older people. : ) It's rare to see stylish people in general, so when they're so much older than my own generation... well, it's a nice surprise.

P.S. Thank you for signing the petition!! Really appreciate it. : )

thanks for the link it looks really interesting. I love old people they have so much to learn to us...

styleonthecouch said...

"Old" or "older" people often fade away from sight, so it's fabulous to see all these fashions here, and a reminder that whatever age we are we can still shine.
