What is a Hipster?

What is a Hipster?

Hipsta Please!  

Hipsters in the Past...

Hipster refers to a young teen (in the 1990s), who is opposed to mainstream fashion, and who searches for purpose, inner worth and the meaning of everything. 

Hipsters Today...

Recently, the the era of hipsters have resurfaced in very urban settings, where there are independent art galleries, move houses, bands, and people. Now the age group of hipsters varies from teens to their 30s.  

Hipster Fashion...

Hipsters are early adopters of trends before an item becomes mainstream, e.g. with music and fashion. 

8 Ways to Recognize a Hipster:

1. Shopping: at vintage stores (new things do not define you);

2. Tops: ironic tops, plaid shirts, and anything in checkers and vintage florals;

Hipster Style: Cara Delevigne 
3. Skinny Jeans: worn by both males and females;

4. Glasses: e.g., shuttershades, oversized plastic framed glasses, nerd glasses and authentic Ray Ban Wayfarers. 

5. Vintage dresses: preferably vintage floral or lace (note, many love to sew and restyle vintage clothing to custom size);

6. Accessories: vintage jewelry, flower headbands, bird necklaces, and patterned leggings;

8. Mismatch and layer; and

9. Hair: keep your hair casual (the "bed look" and a messy hairdo is acceptable; colorful hairdos are a recent hipster trend).
