We wouldn’t be exaggerating the slightest when we say that Wisdom Kaye is one of the most influential fashion boys on the internet right now. If you don’t believe me, take two seconds to scroll through his social media accounts where you will see prestigious partnerships and recognition from some of the biggest names in the business including Dior, Fendi, Coach, and more. Despite the much-deserved hype from luxury brands, Kaye’s most reputable platform, TikTok, is actually centered much more on accessibility than it is on designer labels (those are just a perk). From how to make an outfit with just £17 to how to style heeled boots, Wisdom Kaye has proven he is quite literally a one-stop-shop for all of your fashion needs and desires.
This 19-year-old Texan quickly managed to make getting dressed one of the most entertaining subjects on the app which, in turn, resulted in his 5.2million follower count. Believe it or not, Kaye only joined TikTok one year ago. His first-ever video was a quick compilation of some of his favourite’ fits, and it wasn’t long after that he dove right into the “how-to” side of the app where he began to inform, inspire, and entertain his followers. His overall aesthetic both sartorially and creatively have also landed him a modeling contract with IMG, multiple mentions on Vogue, and his latest partnership with American Eagle. Accolades aside, the major draw of Wisdom Kaye is his relatable and transparent personality. He shops at Target; when he gets a gift from Dior, he freaks out (because who wouldn’t?!); and when his followers speak, he listens. Although Kaye’s popularity almost feels as though it happened overnight, there is no denying that he is no longer on the rise—he’s officially arrived.
