16-25 year olds who love indie rock, modern poetry, art galleries, thrift stores, and independent films. Generally they dress in band t-shirts, subdued blazers, and jeans (not too loose or too tight). They have messy (generally) non-dyed brown hair.
Not to be confused with scenesters
. Hipsters are pretty cool besides their snobby pretension, but scenesters are vain idiots. If you're not sure if someone is one way or the other, ask them if they have a MySpace
. If they excitedly give you their address and go on and on about it, it's a scenester. If they stare blankly it's a hipster.
