If you happen to forget your clothes at Wansho Laundry in Taiwan, rest assured that they'll be put to good use. For two years, laundromat owners Chang Wan-ji and Hsu Sho-er have been curating stylish ensembles and sharing their outfits on Instagram (with the help of their grandson) using the items left behind at their shop. Layering chunky sweaters and oversized button-downs, and pairing them with trousers and skirts, they pull off a range of eclectic styles.

With each new photoshoot, Chang and Hsu, who are both in their mid-80s prove that it's never too late to become fashion icons. Their popular Instagram account has well over 500,000 followers and it's easy to see why. Not only do the elderly couple expertly pair abandoned garments with the right counterpart, but they also model their finished outfits with enviable ease. From coordinating pinstripe blazers and pants to wearing all neutral colors, they confidently demonstrate how clothing can be both empowering and fun.

Most of these photoshoots take place in Wansho Laundry itself, offering a glimpse into where they find their items. Most of the time, Chang and Hsu smile gleefully at the camera, clearly enjoying their creative outlet. Their happiness makes the ensembles even more gratifying to look at, inspiring fashion lovers everywhere to find beauty in unexpected places.
