This stylish 77-year-old great-grandmother, Bridget Sojourner is the topic of discussion today, she is the Style Icon. This woman is the truth, I stand in awe of her style.

I love her quirky/playful sense of style, I love the way she loves life, I can see that just by looking at how she combines her pieces and accessories. She is like a breath of fresh air, easy on the eyes.

Bridget Sojourner is a woman I would like to describe as an Advanced Style Icon. The fact that she is not afraid of colour is a big yes-yes in my books, sometimes a bit of colour is all we need, and Bridget shows us how to do just that in a fun and fearless way, regardless of how old we are.

Her style is a mix of charity shop and vintage finds with bright colourful, fun accessories. The great-grandmother-of-three from Greenwich looks this stylish on a shoestring budget of £100 per week, and she still looks like a million dollars. She doesn’t spend more than £3 on a piece, now that is something. I would love to go shopping with her.

Here are some of her famous quotes:

“Wear orange, pink, yellow,” says Bridget, “sometimes all at the same time. In older age, you don’t want to blend into the background. Keep on standing out. Older people often feel they’re finished so they fade away.”

“I’ve always loved jumpsuits and now they’re very fashionable again,” says Bridget. “I find that I love a certain style and then it is suddenly back in fashion.”

“I have always dressed like this,” says Bridget. “When I was in my twenties, everyone used to stop me in the street and gush, ‘You look marvellous!’ But as you grow older, a lot of women don’t like dressing up. They should – it’s still fun.”

  1. It’s a bit too odd for me you know. Good for her if she wants to wear these things but it doesn’t look stylish to me… at all!!! Not at any age… Except for that black jumpsuit with green gloves… I really love that outfit.

  2. I follow the blog Advanced Style, for women like this, I’d absolutely love to have her over for dinner and then go to her place to rummage her closet. You know she has a tale or two to tell, and a wardrobe that backs it up! I’m also super impressed when women of her age are still agile! Ps and she loves a turban, a woman after my own heart!

  3. I love her style and her spirit. She is a true style Icon, fearless and bold. Women like her are very inspiring, having fun with fashion, dancing to their own drum and living life on their own terms..

  4. I’m 58 and I’d wear everything she is wearing. I’ve dressed like this all of my life. Always been told “I’d never pull that off but for you it works”
