Bon and Pon (husband and wife, in that order) have gained much-deserved internet fame over the past year. They put most of the younger crowd to shame with their style and consistency. See here, a chic and preppy cool-weather look with matching plaids. There's a fearlessness in their choices. Why is this?

Let the snow fall

Because simply put, it is an adorable intimate display of affection. The couple is proud of what they do together and as a result of that, they're making social media waves. There is something refreshing and hopeful about seeing an older couple keeping it simple and cool. What's also inspiring is...

Black is back

The way the couple owns their grey hair. For many young folks, this mile marker for old age can cause panic and distress but Bon and Pon show their followers just how sleek and trendy silver hair can be. In almost every photo you will find the hashtags #whitehair or #silverhair. It's a part of their #look. Speaking of hashtags...

Hues of blue

You will notice that they don't shy away from using #fashion in their tags. This couple is not shy and they know what they're about. Bon and Pon are confident in their style, but their photos are far from vain. In fact, they are quaint. The couple lets the clothing speak for itself. Speaking of which...

The art of simplicity

In some of their more recent posts, the couple has been sharing the names of their preferred retailers. One specific retailer who stands out, UNIQLO. The fashion retailer, rooted in Japan, is a minimalist's dream. Bon and Pon's coordinated outfits all bear that casual minimalist essence that many a fashionista strives for. How do they do it?

Not necessarily matching

As you may have noticed, the couple does not necessarily match each other, they coordinate. In some instances, their patterns will be similar; plaid with plaid or stripes with stripes. Or the colors will follow schemes such as matching hues or shades. Who isn't waiting for their lookbook at this point?

His and hers

couple

What makes their fame so unique is that it is based on their his and hers looks. What I mean here is that it's rare for couples who like to match, to look so darn fashionable. Bon and Pon do not throw on matching t-shirts and call it a day.

Hers and his

couple

There is planning involved. It's an art for them. And their commitment to their craft has earned them quite the following. At this time, their Instagram follower count exceeds 600k. But they are truly humble in the face of their new found fame. If you take the time to peruse their Instagram account, you will find that...

Keeping it cool

couple

Not much has changed. The couple continues to post their outfits of the day as they've done before. Sometimes they even repeat outfits, which is some unspoken, unnecessary taboo for the younger fashion bloggers out there. Bon and Pon, also take the time to appreciate their fans. See, these adorable fan-made mini Bon and Pon dolls.

Aren't they the cutest?

This isn't even the only piece of fan work that exists. So what can one learn from Mr. Bon and Mrs. Pon? Stay humble and keep it simple. Make sure to check them out on Instagram for more looks and even some inspiration. Maybe even join their already large following?
