4 Year-Old ‘Style Hacker’ Shows How to Have Style on a Budget

May 14th 2014 7:30 AM

Heyyyy girl…

Uh, move over Ryan Gosling. There’s a new kid in town (literally) and he’s dressed to the nines. 4 year-old Ryker is hacking his way through the fashion scene with his style fit for a page straight out of GQ.


Ryker, with the help of his mom, Collette Wixom run a fashion blog and Instagram page showing off his “hacks” of men’s high fashion trends on a budget. Their journey began when a few friends showed Collette some fashion kids on Instagram. These kids were sporting the $200 pair of shoes that they’ll grow out of in 4 months and Gucci belts that cost about a third of your paycheck. Inspired, Collette decided to start the Mini Style Hacks blog and Instagram to show that it is possible to dress your kid in style without breaking the bank.


Though it seems like Ryker is one of those protege child stars who will win and Oscar by the time he starts first grade, Collette assures us that her son is not a model or an actor. He’s a typical messy 4 year old boy who loves to run around and play. Collette’s secret to get him posing?

“[Ryker] is a regular kid who does regular kid things.  I am able to get him to “pose” by making it fun for him.  We use our imaginations a ton and have a great time while doing so.  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.  If your child hates having their picture taken, give imaginative play a try!”

Watch out ladies…this one’s gonna be a little heartbreaker. Swoon.
