hipster style

A couple of days ago I was having a conversation with a friend of mine and she said she hating all this „hipstareala” thing(hipsterism) . Me? I don’t hate it, I kinda like it.

So, what’s a hipster?
Hipsters, according to Urban Dictionary are a subculture of men and women typically in their 20’s and 30’s that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter.
According to wikipedia, Hipster is a slang term that first appeared in the 1940s, and was revived in the 1990s and 2000s often to describe types of young, recently-settled urban middle class adults and older teenagers with interests in non-mainstream fashion and culture, particularly alternative music, indie rock, independent film, magazines such as Vice and Clash.

Hipster have a vintage&retro vibe, they shop from thrift stores, wear tight jeans, old-school sneakers, plaid shirts and tick rimmed glasses. Add a hat and some tattoos and you’re all set up:)

I don’t think being a hipster is bad, they have a great sense of style and c’mon who doesn’t love the tick rimmed glasses?

What do you think?

    ha! my friend joel took that pic of the guy against the green wall!

    hipsters? ugh. love the style. hate the pretentious "holier than thou" attitude (although not all have that) … i think i hate the stereotype, but the reality isn't so bad…. its good for our culture actually…. yeah…. so i have a love/hate relationship with them… make sense? sort of…

    It doesn't have to be bad. I don't think it's cool when hipsters attempt to be alternative and disparage others for being mainstream when they may in fact be just that. I do love me the vintage and retro vibe though of course!

    I actually love this thrown together hipster look! I just wish I were "cool" enough to pull it off 🙂

    Hipsters are good style wise but I wish they'd shut up about how many indie films they've seen this month etc…

    love the fashion &music that comes along with the definition… but agree with the others on the "too cool for school" attitude.

    ah, I don't think hipsters are bad – just when they look down on others – because that goes against what they're meant to be, i think?

  • Marz April 13, 2010 at 7:08 am

    Love the style of hipsters, especially if its all your own.

  • Martwa Marta April 13, 2010 at 7:15 am

    i adore indie rock and their style, but on the other hand their attitude 'too cool for school' annoys me sometimes…

    I happened upon this post while in search of a hipster definition. I really like your take on the whole thing. It really is a mindset though, moreso than a fashion choice. I like to think of myself as hipster chic. I know that goes against all hipster ways, conforming to the popular term of chic. But, I cant decide what my style label is, otherwise.
