HYPEBAE Pick: If you’re wondering how you can incorporate retro chic pieces into your wardrobe, look no further than Erika Bowes. Along with being a photographer and stylist, the half-Japanese half-British creative also happens to be the creative director for rising girlboss magazine, Sukeban. From her killer glasses game to her vintage-inspired looks, we’re secretly hoping to raid Erika’s closet one day.

HYPEBAE Pick: By day, Natalia Infantes might be a hairdresser but on social media, she’s known as a prolific sneakerhead. Known for her extensive collection, she has a not-so-subtle preference for a pink palette when it comes to both sneakers and streetwear pieces. From the Nike Presto and Air Max Plus, to the adidas EQT Support ADV and Stan Smith, Natalia’s collection is definitely one to give us sneaker envy.

HYPEBAE Pick: Joyce Croonen runs a travel, design and fashion blog at mydubio.com, which when translated into an IG format makes for an absolutely stunning feed.

HYPEBAE Pick: If you’ve ever wondered what it looks like when people wear Vetements and Jacquemus in real life, model Jennifer Grace is your answer. Styled in today’s most coveted streetwear pieces, the Southern Californian cool girl shares takes from editorials in which she is walking along the highway in Balenciaga or shopping at a nearby cornerstore in head-to-toe Vetements. This is next level casual chic and we want to see more, more, more.
