Fashions Fade, Style is Eternal

“Young women you’re going to be old women some day…”

I figure the fashion faux pas you’ll end up regretting the most occur between the ages of 14 to 25. Don’t get me wrong, that is what being young is all about. Your teens and twenties are for sampling, experimenting and getting away with wearing just about anything (However it doesn’t mean you won’t look back and cringe at your chunky-heeled wedge sandals circa ’99—you know you did).

I’d like to think that all this experimentation (and cringing) leads to developing your own individual style, hopefully one that goes past just what the current trends and magazines are touting and one where you feel like you are expressing exactly who you are.

About a year ago I came across this really awesome blog, Advanced Style —probably one of the only street style blogs that caters to the plus 60 set. It’s awesome and encouraging that just as fashion today is geared to the young, true style is something you develop over your entire lifetime. These ladies are a testament to that:

I sincerely hope I rock it this hard when I am 90.
