How do you define style? Look at Advanced Style for Inspiration

Article by Ceri Wheeldon


Does wearing a hat make you stylish? Is the shoes, the earrings – or just a strong sense of self?

Advanced Style by Ari Seth Cohen is a wonderful book – full of photographs of stylish women – advanced in both years and style as he captured them on camera as they walked through the streets of New York.

A I looked through the wonderful images in the book, it struck me just how many of the stylish women featured wore hats or headpieces. They all look stylish – incredibly ‘pulled together’. The hats add to both their style and their stature. It did make me wonder why so many of us (myself included) tend to wear hats only for special occasions, when a simple hat really can transform an outfit – not to mention be a saviour on bad hair days!

Hats bring interest to every outfit

The hats worn by the Advanced Style women in Ari’s book seemed to bring balance and interest to every outfit.

All the women in Ari’s book  confident, are not afraid to be noticed – they have all developed their own signature styles , and demonstrate their love of bold accessories. No timid sunglasses for these ladies. Whether they add unusual shoes , belts or earrings to an outfit they really know how to make a statement and show their own unique personality. They all appear to have a passion for life which is reflected in their clothes.

With some of the women featured being over 100- they certainly know how to look Fab after Fifty – no shrinking violets and with a determination to NOT be invisible.

The Advanced Style Book is fabulous. If you are looking for style inspiration also check out Ari’s Advanced Style Blog – it’s fabulous!
