Accidental Icon is a Boomer fashion blog founded by social work professor and New York native Lyn Slater. While fashion for women over 50 is often depicted as tame by most media publications, Slater's blog rejects the negative stereotypes associated with aging and instead encourages readers to embrace the skin they're in.

Posing in vanguard pieces from Acne Studios, Rick Owens and Comme des Garcons among other labels, Lyn Slater inspires fashion fans of all ages and displays a style aesthetic that is uniquely her own. Accidental Icon blends New York iconography -- from images to the Guggenheim's spiraling landscape to gritty portraits of graffiti-clad alleyways -- with its founder's striking wardrobe and effortlessly cool beauty look.

Promoting self-expression, beauty and fashion-themed Boomer blogs are on the rise and are proving that growing older is now synonymous with creativity and a new-found sense of empowerment.
