Much like any other aspect of life (cooking, love, money, and so on), turning to those who have seen and experienced more than yourself for advice is a wise choice. It's no secret that over the course of your life, the years of trial and error amount to invaluable wisdom that can't simply be taught. This is especially true when it comes to cultivating a unique sense of personal style. Let's face it—style is one of those things that continues to get better with age.

Keeping this in mind, we couldn't help but notice a gap in our blogger coverage for women that are no longer in their 20s and 30s, but that ends today. We read through our reader's comments, scoured the web, and asked around for the best blogs by older women. The process was so thoroughly inspiring that we had to share the stylish women we discovered along the way. Scroll down to see our list, and if you love their look be sure to shop pieces inspired by their style.
