This Octogenarian Couple Is the Only Style Inspiration We Need

Want Show As Young is the Instagram handle, fire 'fits is the theme.

The year 2020 has been full of surprises—most of them being truly awful—but Instagram has unearthed a legitimate delight, and it's called "Want Show As Young." The account documents the objectively killer style of a Taiwanese octogenarian couple, and while it only has 19 posts, the pair has amassed 154K followers. And, let's be honest, countless smiles.

Wanji and Sho-er own a laundromat in Taiwan and have been having what appears to be a great time styling the wares left behind by forgetful customers—pairing Chuck Taylors with pencil skirts, coordinating tan suits, donning any number of cool hats from buckets and berets to baseball caps, and owning some very plaid separates and rock tees.

Local Taiwanese news site ANCX spoke with the couple's grandson, Reef, who is the mastermind behind the account. He describes the pair as, "a very cute loving couple married for more than 60 years." The shop where all the images are taken, Wansho, has been open for over 70 years, beginning when Reef's grandfather was 14 years old. Reef launched the account after he noticed the pair were “bored everyday...they [felt] old and didn’t want to go out. I couldn’t bear it. So I wanted to do something for them."

A pile of discarded clothes, a grandson with a good eye, a camera, and a playful approach to styling turned out to be just the distraction the stylish seniors needed. The result is some fire 'fits for us to see, and a new social media hobby for a pair that's truly #couplegoals.
