The hipster paperdoll is really cute, but they got one VERY important thing wrong! That bike has a derailleur. Shifters are passe' and most bike-riding hipsters I know are all about the fixed gear conversions.

Hipster style is basically style gone retarded for most. Not all, there are some really well dressed people in my town who pull it off, but for the most part it's all about "I dress like this because you don't like it and I'm better than everyone else attitude"

I don`t see it as a negative term, rather something I (hope I) am.

My personal definition of a "Hipster":

-A person who wears the newest Fashion Trends 2 month earlier than everybody else, those 2 month when H&M havn`t copied the Styles.

-A Hipster only wears what looks good on him/her and doesn`t blindly follow every Trend.

-A Hipster adds his/her own ideas to Stylings.

-A Hipster pulls "the full look" off with confidence (wears the whole Outfit, not just an accessory)

-A Hipster always picks Style over comfort.

Let's put it this way, if you're questioning and analyzing the ways of how to be a hipster, then you aren't one.

I'm not pro/anti hipsters in anyway but I found this on urbandictionary.com and thought it was kinda funny, even if the author sounds a little bitter:

Quote:
hipster

Someone who thinks that they are being "special" and "unique" for liking some underground bullshit no one else cares about. And they pointlessly look down on people who don't know anything about indie culture, because that's the only thing they know anything about. They're quick to call the rest of the world conformists when in reality, they are the ones conforming by partaking in a "too cool for mainstream so i am going to reject it by looking and acting like a grungy *******" way of life only to seem uber-fashionable. They just end up looking like idiots.
1) Hipster: I won't drink at starbucks, it's too corporate.

2)Non-Hipster: I want a Louis Vitton purse because they are cool

Hipster: You're such a conformist, haveing a Louis Vitton purse is so unoriginal. I like my purse I found in the gutter for $4 dollars.

Non-hipster: but it's fugly

Hipster: yah, but no one else has it. It's completely unique.

Non-hipster: that bum over there has something pretty similar though.

Hipster: You're ignorant because you can't see the real beauty in life.
I don't have time for this, I'm gonna go to my cave of an apartment and listen to some indie rock you've probably never heard of....

Non hipster: You need to see a therapist

Hipster: I am my own therapist.

Hating hipsters is the number one sign of being a hipster.

I'm still really, really confused about what a Hipster is, and I'm quite intrigued by it. I found another supposed definition on urbandictionary.com:

Quote:
Best known for walking out of an Urban Outfitters Catalogue. Female Hipsters tend to wear either 1. Leggings 2. Super skinny jeans 3. ballet flats 4. over sized sunglasses 5. and/or sporting a haircut with some kind of angled bang. Male hipsters are usually spotted wearing: even skinnier skinny jeans 2. iconic t-shirts 3. some subtle accessory like a leather bracelet or aviator glasses 4. and slightly tousled hair, that looks styled but greasy. (giving the illusion of not caring

So I'm thinking, that could be *any* girl or guy in London?!?
