Contrary to what Hollywood and advertising would have us believe, aging as a woman does not render one automatically invisible.
And in case you’re in need of some inspiration (note that we didn’t say “convincing”), we’re sharing 5 badass Instagram influencers over 50 who seem to be living their best lives, no ifs, ands, or buts!
“Choosing to embrace my natural gray hair, instead of covering it, opened up new possibilities of inner and outer growth.”
Adelina is a Brooklyn-born-and-raised designer, artist, writer, traveler, and grandmother committed to aging gracefully and embracing her fly-as-hell gray hair.
“Honestly, my outlook and attitude has completely changed after going naturally gray. I feel more liberated and confident to be me.”
Mireya is a model whose gorgeous hair will make you want to join the silver sisters club, ASAP.
“I want to shine a bright light in the dark corners of the shame that is heaped on women for daring to age.”
Paulina is a supermodel, actress, writer, and activist with an unedited, uncensored, 100% candid attitude.
“Being older has brought me so much joy, freedom, and confidence.”
Jin is a 53-year-old Korean pharmacist, grandmother, and pro-aging advocate whose seriously impressive workout and dance vids will brighten your day.
“I hope I inspire women over 50 to get up, show up, and style up everyday. The alternative — to no longer care because we feel we are now too old for certain fashion trends — is depressing.”
Isabella is Filipino American style blogger, content creator, and our latest fashion icon. We can’t get enough of her bold and colorful outfits.
