Old Folks Have Style

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The elderly don’t just wear orthopedic shoes and moth-ridden cardigans.

Advance Style is a blog that features photos taken by Ari Cohen of the most fabulously stylish old people walking around New York City, many of which are accompanied by their style stories.

Cohen stalks the streets of the Big Apple stopping the fashion-forward elderly, and says their looks beat out a hipster’s wardrobe any day.

He adds, “There’s such a focus on the young people in New York and what they’re wearing, but the older people have great style too.”

Typically, the pensioners put together a funky modern look, complete with dyed pink hair and combat boots, or stick to sophisticated vintage looks by wearing hats, gloves, and fur coats.

Due to his photo sessions, Cohen has become an adopted grandson to many of the folks he photographs, who often invite him to lunch.
