These Older Women Have Truly Badass Style

Since the launch of his Advanced Style blog back in 2008, Ari Seth Cohen has been pioneering the celebration and acceptance of older men and women in fashion. Since then, we've seen a 60-year-old score a swimsuit modeling gig, a 65-year-old land a J.Crew ad, and older ladies break into the blogging big leagues. However, that doesn't mean there isn't more work to be done when it comes to shedding the industry's bias that favors younger women. 

To take an in-depth look at senior style, we caught up with Cohen himself, whose upcoming second book, Advanced Style: Older and Wiser, is set to be released April 26. Read on for our full interview with Cohen, as well as two exclusive images from the new tome, which he describes as "an optimistic and joyful picture of aging."
