Grandma’s Got Style: Iris Apfel’s Best Looks (Part 1)

Iris Apfel is a style icon. Regardless of the fact that she’s 94 years old – yes, 94! – she still wears thoughtful and incredibly well put-together outfits with ease. And there’s even a documentary about her! Check out eight of Iris’ best styles here, and stay tuned for part two, coming soon!

Number Eight: All Red Everything. Look at her pop! It takes real guts to wear something this bold.

Number Seven: Glasses Game on Point. Iris always wears glasses with round frames. And who can blame her? She looks great!

Number Six: Black Velvet. Perhaps she’s channeling David Lynch, but whatever it is, she looks great doing it. That coat calls to mind 101 Dalmations, but Iris is no Cruella De Vil.

Number Five: Sunshine Lady. That shirt is bold, but it only serves as a blank canvas for her amazing and diverse accessories. We’d let her brighten up our day anytime.

Number Four: Bedazzled. It’s an impressive feat that she’s even capable of standing wearing all of that jewelry! Her bracelets alone could supply an entire thrift store.

Number Three: Model Behavior. Iris fits right in sitting next to model Carol Alt. In fact, one could argue she looks even better than Alt.

Number Two: Tribal to a Tee. Some tribal jewelry can be tacky, but if you’re Iris, you can get away with anything. Go big or go home.

Number One: Fur Gone Wild. Fur might not be fashionable anymore, but on a woman like Iris, it just looks so purr-fect. The eccentric cut of the fur really makes it stand out as well.
