Simple yet sophisticated, classic yet modern, but mostly AFFORDABLE – something we can all appreciate! Alexis’ style resonates not only with young adults but with older generations too – there’s something for everyone and we’re here for it.

While her feed is full of cute outfits, her captions are often quirky, hilarious, and relatable – like how she’s actually awkward about taking pictures in public. Same!

Her entire feed is shoppable on her website so her followers – all 24.1k of them on Instagram – can get the look! Another bonus – she’s got her Collab game on point! Boomer offers discount codes for many of the outfits she posts, making it easier for followers to get the look. You really can’t go wrong with a collab here.

Calling all bridal fans! Hope LaVine is the ish! She’s not only got tips for finding the perfect wedding dress (or suit, jumpsuit… whatever your personality desires) but she’s also got style tips for wedding guests and what to wear if you think he might be popping the question on your next date! We love that she pushes soon-to-be brides to think outside the box regarding their style.

Her videos provide a lot of information and inspiration, sprinkled in with some well-placed humor and creativity – such as styling wedding gowns as emojis (this is actually really amazing and probably not what you’re thinking).

Boasting 16.7k followers on Instagram and a whopping 113.1k on TikTok, Hope really knows her stuff.

Natalie may mostly be on style but her partnerships tend to lean to the beauty side of things having partnered with beauty giants L’Oreal Paris, Neutrogena, and Smash Box Cosmetics. Hey, what’s a good outfit without flawless skin? If you’re looking to Collab with a Sacramento influencer who dabbles in both fashion and beauty, Natalie’s your gal.
