50+ Style Icons We Found on Web

Style knows no age, and these 50+ people are soul proof of it! Most of the style icons (we sure as hell will refer to them as style icons as they look better than most of us do) we’ve chosen are just regular people minding their business on the streets of their towns and cities, absolutely unaware that they are re-defining the fashion world as we speak.
Except for their impeccable sense of style and cut-and-color composition, the reason we are so fascinated with these individuals is that, unlike most of us today who have adopted styles forced by various fashion bloggers on the internet, these guys probably have no “internet fashion education” under their belt but rely on their inner drive to match and combine pieces, and in result – look absolutely fabulous!
Here are some of our favorite 50+ fashionistas, hope you’ll enjoy their styles as much as we did:

Male bun charm

We are so sorry to hear you aren’t looking as amazing as the mister portrayed in the picture above; after all, not everyone can pull off a yellow ascot, awesome sunnies and an impressive male bun while shopping for vintage oil cans at their flea market. Brava!

Schoolboy vibes

This forever classic and fabulous rascal-schoolboy look is only improved by those non-dress code, sherbet-colored pants. We may argue this guy is going through some High school nostalgia ending in him superbly channeling his old uniform… or, he just loves the style and rocks it amazingly! Whichever the case, it’s working for us!

Chic looks good coupled up

Don’t you just love it when you see a fashionable couple casually walking down the street, looking all stylish and what not. What’s particularly amazing about these two is that this guy’s laid-back panache lets his lady shine. The way these two complement each other is so inspiring, don’t you think?

I am God of fashion

This gentlemen that was recently photographed in Berlin near the Kotbusser Tor station wearing his iTailor outfit is what we consider having impeccable style and a fantastic sense of fashion. The gentleman is called Günther Krabbenhöft and is incorrectly reported to be 104 years old. Mr Günther says on his FB profile that the Internet has “doubled” his age.
“I find that I dress pretty normal. I’ve always dressed like this. When I went to work, when I go to exercise. I want to look at myself with joy. It’s also always a reflection of my inner self.” Well, keep it up, it’s amazing!

Call me Lynn

This gorgeous woman is everything! Her style is impeccable, well put together and, in a word, breathtaking! All of the outfits featured in the photos ooze old Hollywood charm – the outfits are almost Elizabeth Tayloresque, but with an evident sense of individuality in them. We will  forever remember her as our style crush. Rest in peace, Lynn Dell Cohen.

I am Tziporah Salamon

Colorful, edgy, awe-inspiring and definitely unusual, Ms Salamon knows good clothes and isn’t afraid to flaunt them. A major label, Lanvin, featured this stunning 62-year-old in their Fall 2012 Campaign! When asked how she felt about it, she said she never could’ve guessed something like this could happen for her: “” I am totally honored, jazzed, and thrilled. I am so grateful for this opportunity. In my early 20s I would have never realized that I could do something like this. It wasn’t until I was in my 40s that I began to see my beauty. By then I felt that there weren’t many opportunities for older models.  How ironic is it that i am having my big break as a model in my 60s? This is a great day!”
If this is what the old(er) age looks like, we are on board! This lovely lady’s name almost sounds like a fashion brand, don’t you think? In fact, she is a well known personal stylist and if we had the opportunity – we’d definitely be the first in line to get styled by her!

Labor Day Weekend Style 

The last weekend of the summer is always full of activities, which also means it’s full of wardrobe changes and figuring out what to wear to each event. You could possibly have several things you go to in one day or something each day of the weekend. In this post I styled looks for both women and men for the most popular Labor Day weekend events – Brunch, Beach and BBQ.
 
Brunch– A denim crop top, a striped full skirt, brown wedge sandals and a cute Palm tree tote will have you feeling like you are brunching in style with little effort. Continue Reading

Hey Guys, What’s Your Swimwear Style?

feature image

Swimming. An activity characterized by many as being exhilarating, freeing, or just plain fun. Although summer vacation is almost over for many of us there still is plenty of time to enjoy the beach and heat across the globe.

Some of us take little notices as to what we wear to the pool/beach etc., especially us guys. But there is one thing I can say is that there are certain types of styles certain men gravitate towards. There is the short-short man, the Speedo wearing dude or the long board short traditional lad. I myself fall in between the short-short and board short range. But there isn’t anything wrong with wearing the Speedo if you body is right for it.
