Cohen’s proving fashion ageism wrong, capturing the beauty and inborn fierce fashion of women sixty and over through his popular blog Advanced Style, which has sparked a just-released book ($20.58 on amazon.com) and upcoming documentary. Here are some lovely ladies featured in Cohen’s book and eight style rules inspired by these wise fashionistas, who prove that when it comes to fashion, age is just a number!

These ladies are seen rocking some of the hottest trends right now, from faux bifocals to braided hairdos to neon colors, yet they manage to seriously spice up these trends with their own fashion flare. Take a tip for these trendsetters—creativity is the first rule to being a fashion bombshell, no matter how young or old you are!
