Meet Baddie Winkle and Lyn Slater, Our Favorite Fashion Grandmas
If there's anything in the world that has proven itself to be timeless, it's fashion. Everybody wears clothes but not everyone has style and taste - and not exactly everyone can confidently wear clothes at a ripe age.
Aside from being timeless, fashion has proven itself to be an important part of people's everyday lives. It has evolved from mere functionality to a way to express our personalities. It has become a source of confidence and power, especially to women.
When we say fashion knows no age, we mean it. Just look at Baddie Winkle and Lyn Slater.
Helen Ruth Elam Van Winkle aka Baddie Winkle, who describes herself as 'stealing yo man since 1928', is an 89-year-old influencer and fashion lover from Hazard, Kentucky. She started becoming a social media icon at age 85 when she started flaunting her eccentric clothes and her innuendos.
Baddie had some help from her granddaughter in uploading photos and gathering followers.
We are crazy for Baddie Winkle's lewks and funny antics!
On the other side of the fashion spectrum is Lyn Slater aka The Accidental Icon. Lyn, who describes herself as a 'cultural influencer, professor, model, writer, content creator, and speaker', is a 65-year-old influencer and fashion lover from New York City. She is fashion-forward and prefers brands that hold good principle intact.
Lyn has become famous for being clothed in only the best clothes with the best posture, of course.
We are crazy for her super chic photos and impeccable taste!
These women prove that women don't lose beauty and style as they age. What matters most is that you keep taking care of yourself and continue to express who you are regardless where you are from and how old you are. You'll never know who you'd inspire.
