Coco Chanel famously said, "Fashion passes, style remains".

While we have a bevy of trendy shopaholics in our midst, very few can say they've stood the test of time to solidify personal style, and earn the title of being "iconic".

New Yorker Ari Seth Cohen has taken note of the adage, documenting the physical manifestations of Coco's wisdom, on "Advanced Style", a street-style blog comprised of Cohen's own snapshots showcasing individuals of a more mature age who constantly illustrate sartorial excellence.

Echoing Chanel's sentiments, Cohen told The Guardian he's drawn to an older crowd because, "People don't stop being stylish, creative and active as they age. With time, style and creativity become advanced." And like fine wines, the best only improve with age.

We've rounded up the top Post50 female style icons who make both Coco's and Cohen's quotes ring true.
