    For many of us, the first lessons in senior style came from our parents, grandparents, or the cool next-door neighbor who taught us how to play gin rummy. And, while we may have quickly learned that the fashion industry seems to favor youth instead, there's been a change over the past few years that's nothing short of exhilarating.

    Models like Lauren Hutton (70 years old) and Carmen Dell'Orefice (82 years old) are fronting campaigns, and sites like Advanced Style have become a source of regular inspiration. (Thank you for that, Ari Seth Cohen.) It seems the world is not only paying attention to how seniors dress, but it's finally giving this generation the attention and respect it deserves.

    And, it was our chance to learn a thing or two — directly from the style stars we've been admiring. So, we invited four ladies to school our very own fashion team. While we — being in our 20s and 30s — may be used to testing the waters as far as fashion goes, as it turns out, our sense of sartorial adventure is nothin' compared to what we'd embrace in our 60s, 80s, or 90s. To prove it, our editors put their looks in the hands of some seasoned stylists and got an entirely new perspective — not to mention some real, no-B.S. insight. Ahead, check out what happened when these feisty muses gave us a major makeover.
