I am so pleased to share this inspiring blog with you today. Ari Seth Cohen, the creator of Advanced Style, strolls the bustling streets of New York City and beyond, capturing those with an inherent strong spirit and a pronounced sense of personal style—who celebrate their age with confidence and grace. Ari began the blog so inspired by his own grandmother’s unique and personal style, and the amazing style, he discovered, of so many seniors. Perhaps beyond what he had originally imagined, the blog has advanced wonderfully and organically over the past three years, and now, he has now authored a book!
The book will be released in April, but you may wish to pre-order a copy now. Here is an exerpt from the Amazon page: "Advanced Style is Ari Seth Cohen’s blog-based ode to the confidence, beauty, and fashion that can only be achieved through the experience of a life lived glamorously. It is a collection of street fashion unlike any seen before—focused on the over-60 set in the world’s most stylish locales. The (mostly) ladies of Advanced Style are enjoying their later years with grace and panache, marching to the beat of their own drummer. These timeless images and words of wisdom provide fashion inspiration for all ages and prove that age is nothing but a state of mind.
The Advanced Style book will showcase, in luscious full-color, the best of the blog, but will also act as a true guidebook with all-new material featuring wardrobes, interviews, stories, and advice from a cadre of his most chic subjects, along with a large selection of never-before-seen photography—fresh off of sidewalk catwalks around the world!" Wouldn't this book be a lovely Christmas gift to give?
