Hipster: How to dress like Hipster.

Posted by Mizy Mizearly at Tuesday, August 06, 2013

Okayy, lately I think I fall in love with Hipster style and somehow makes me want to learn how to dress like Hipster. A hipster refers to a young teen in the 1990's. This culture is mainly associated with varied non-mainstream fashion sensibility.

Hipster Fashion. How to dress like a Hipster: 

1. Wear skinny jeans. The classic "skinny jeans" make the hipster look, both for males and females. Hipster men tend to be as skinny as the women. 
  • Basically, the tighter, the better.
  • Note that guy hipsters actually probably wear skinny jeans more than the girls (girls prefer leggings/jeggings/treggings).
  • Alternatively, for women, high-wasted pants (a.k.a. "mom jeans") may also be worn.

2. Wear glasess. Hipsters love ironic eye wear such as shutter shades, oversized plastic framed glasses, Buddy Holly glasses, nerd glasses, and — for those who can afford it — authentic Ray Ban Wayfarers of all the colors of the rainbow. 

3. Dress vintage. Dresses are good for women, preferably vintage floral or lace. Granny's closet is definitely a good source; however, you should know how to sew and restyle vintage clothing to fit you.

4. Find suitable footwear. Hipster shoes include cowboy boots, Converse, and a range of flats. 
  • Converses are no longer universal. They look great and you can wear them pretty much anywhere, but since everyone wears them, Doc Martens or any other vintage shoes are better.
  • If it's trainers you're after, see Classic Reeboks.
  • For girls, heels aren't the most popular but feel free to wear them. Cute sandals, Keds, boots, and granny boots are not only more practical but also show how little effort you've put forth (even if it took you ages to find the perfect pair).

5. Accessorize. There is a wide range of accessories, including large flower headbands, neon nail polish, pins, bright belts, bird necklaces, patterned and colorful leggings, etc. 
  • Don't forget your plugs, piercings, and random scars supposedly acquired through woodwork and other carpenter-like endeavors.
  • Appropriately ironic accessories are mandatory, such as things kids would take to school, like an animal image on a lunchbox.
  • Essentials include a courier bag (not a backpack), preferably something from Freitag, that can fit your MacBook, iPhone, and vinyl LPs (never CDs) of your current favorite band.
