The five genius style lessons we learned from Ari Seth Cohen’s just-released Advanced Style book
Through his blog, Advanced Style as well as our collaborations with him over the past year, Ari Seth Cohen lets us inside the shimmering worlds of some of the finest (and we mean in the fine wine sense) ladies of style. They’re aged 50 and over and rather than their style transcending their age, it’s defined by it. In fact, as many of Cohen’s subjects have attested to, their adventurous styles have not only matured throughout the years, but they are brightly characterized by the fact that they no longer dress for anyone but themselves. For anything but the joy of it.
In his just-released book of the same name ($25, amazon.ca), Cohen features the ladies of Advanced Style in all their glory. From the 100-year-old Rose to the Idiocyncratic Fashionistas, his ladies are quick to give a clever quip and his book is chock full of ‘em. Here are just a few of our favourites.
