Meet Ryker, one of the most fashionable 4-year-olds around. Together with his mom, Collette Wixom, the tiny fashionisto has started a popular Instagram and blog following Ryker’s trendsetting adventures. The tiny tot’s style is on par with those of celebrities, models, and fashion bloggers, as can be seen from the side-by-side comparisons that Wixom posts, in which Ryker mimics the poses and outfits of studs like Ryan Gosling, Pharrell, and well-known men’s style blogger Adam Gallagher.
Although Ryker’s threads may look designer, they all come from budget-friendly stores like Gap Kids, H&M, and Zara. Inspired by editorial spreads and fashion photos, Wixom tries to “hack” high-priced looks by using affordable options. As it says on the duo’s Instagram, “You don’t have to be rich to have style!”
As trendy as Ryker is, Wixom insists that her son is just a regular kid who enjoys playing and making messes like any other 4-year-old. She gets him to pose for photos by making it fun for him. According to her, “If you see him with his hands in his pockets, he is holstering his imaginary laser guns. If you see him leaning against a wall, he is trying to push it over with his body weight.”
