Social media acts as a virtual pedestal for sartorial excellence; among the stylish crowd, Instagrammer Alonso Mateo stands out not only for his impeccable style, but also for his tender age of five.

The adorable child boasts a following on the photo-based social network of over 130,000. Perhaps his eye for swagger is inherited from his mother, freelance stylist Luisa Fernanda Espinosa. Yet the most startling revelation is that his perfectly tailored custom-made designer pieces paired with aviator shades are the result of Alonso’s own taste.

"I’ll help him coordinate outfits so that they make sense, but mostly it’s him," his mother tells The Cut blog. Alonso Mateo is a little darling with an eye for impeccable style: a sure fashion icon for children and adults alike.
