I define "hipsters" as poseurs who are immitating people who are actually hip, or at least who they perceive to be hip. A hip person typically has some degree of fashion sense, and a good example of the difference between this and a "hipster" is how a hip person might buy articles of clothing from the Salvation Army because they're cheap and/or unique, whereas a "hipster" would shop at some sort of boutique that sells exclusively fashionable vintage clothing and pay 10 times as much for more or less the same items.

A hip person is cognitive of what styles are fashionable, and finds a style that suits his or her self, but doesn't necessarily have to be wearing exclusively non-mainstream vintage or designer articles. A hipster either copies a hip person, the other hipsters he knows, or whatever he sees in "Vice" magazine. A few fashion items are always acceptible regardless of how much of a poseur you are or aren't: Chuck Taylors, black hoodies, tight pants, etc.

A hip person might look hung over or like they just got out of bed, but if they do, it's because they really are hung over and just got out of bed. A "hipster" might spend considerable effort faking that look by messing up their hair and intentionally wearing wrinkled clothes. A telltale sign of a hipster douchebag is that he or she is clearly "trying" to be fashionable. They often overaccessorize with some sort of scarf, hat, or outlandish shoes, and put a great deal of effort into making sure everything matches.

A hip person most likely is an avid listener of music, but doesn't particularly care how others judge his or her taste. He or she might listen to anything, sometimes including things that were once, or even are currently, mainstream. A "hipster" contrives his or her music collection to be seen by others as cool and "indie". They love vinyl records. Crappy music seems cool to them as long as they listen to it on vinyl, and especially if it's some sort of rare recording that they can be sure no one else they know owns. If you asked a hipster whether he cared if people thought his music collection was cool, he would say "no", but he would be lying. They care.

In fact, the defining trait that seperates legitimate cool people from hipster douchebags is that truly hip people genuinely don't care what other people think of them, or maybe acknowledge it a little bit but don't base their whole persona around it. Hipsters are obsessed with this fact, and build their entire personalities in an effort to make it look like they also don't care. They want, just as much as normal people, to fit in. A really hip person just naturally fits in because he or she has a likable personality and is fun to be around. All hipsters hate other hipsters and consider them to be phonies, and no hipster will ever admit to being one even if they fit all of the stereotypes.
True story: I was recently at a thanksgiving party where a lot of food was being served. The skinny, pale, threadbare sweater and tight pants-clad hipster-looking guy who had been putting on music all evening walked into the room. People weren't talking much at the time because their mouths were full, and hipster douchemaster sweater guy decided the room wasn't sociable enough for him, said "This room sucks", turned, and walked away. He could have just walked away, but he felt he had to verbally pass judgment on the room's occupants to make sure he seemed superior to them. What a dick.

A guy who listens to indie bands you've never heard of, always has his ipod, and uses the word cheek several times a day. He might also wear t-shirts with hipster slogans and play an instrument in a garage band.

Its a pretty obscure subculture *looks down nose* you've probably not heard of them *smug look*

a group of arrogant poseurs who believe themselves to be better than you or me, because the are non-conformist. defined in this case by conforming slavishly to a different group.

they aggresively dislike the term 'Hipster' as they know that it marks them as stupid and moronic, so they call everyone else hipster, kind of like how the most aggresive homophobes call everyone else gay
"oh man, i love 'this band' they make awful music, but no ones heard of them yet. I am such a non-conformist"

3 weeks later

"oh man, i hate 'this band' they make good music and everyone has heard of them. anyone who likes them is a Hipster"

Forget everything you know about hipsters its all wrong. Hipsters are the third gender of the human race, these individuals segregate themselves from the other two genders by sporting their own gender specific fashion, culture and music. The hipster gender has to this day baffled the scientific community for they play no part in reproduction nor contribute to society what so ever (because they usually have no job and live off their parents trust fund ... its fucking true). The usual human hipster would generally perceive members of other genders as inferior, rejecting all ideas and culture of the genders and referring to it as being "too mainstream" a term they use for something that doesn't appeal to their gender much like a man playing with barbie dolls or a woman who is somewhere other than the kitchen. Hipsters are usually found boasting about their great knowledge on pointless topics that most people wouldn't really give a shit about and their useless philosophy/art degree that they cant and wont use. Scientist theorize that the reason the hipster gender is not found in the wild is because the members of the gender had long ago died off. The hipster lifestyle is not compatible in the wild for there are no Cafes, Parliament Cigarettes, Crappy Indie Music and all carnivorous hipster animals would have perished from refusing to consume meat. Also like the whole population of the United States all hipsters have no clue as to the correct usage of the word "irony"
Hipster: I wear prescription glasses even tho i dont even need them cos im being ironic hurr derrrrp.

A hipster is a person, usually between 18-30, who enjoys trends and being ironic usually because it's fun and looks cool. The type of trends hipsters like are not considered trendy by the general public. For example, a hipster usually dresses in tight jeans, a shirt from salvation army, plaid, and oversized glasses. (Sometimes even unprescribed.) A hipster believes the stereotypical image of men and women are degrading, so instead they shop at stores geared toward the poor. A favorite among hipsters is over sized shirts, usually with animals printed on them like wolves and tigers.

A hipster generally doesn't follow the general social standards because a hipster feels more intellectually inclined and claims to be cultured. A hipster is generally enrolled in art school and takes photos of things that are trendy. (Mostly themselves and their friends who are also hipsters.) Hipsters claim to be the cultural phenomenon of our time and modern day philosophers. But don't be fooled, hipsters have not contributed to changing the world or benefiting it in any way other than acknowledging that Salvation Army has enough colorful clothing for everybody to wear.
Hipsters believe they are making a difference by taking pictures, creating paintings of miscellaneous objects, and playing music with a lot of loud noises. But when reflecting on all of this, no one has seen any progress in the world. A hipster is actually making the world a worse place by boycotting mainstream stores. It is killing the economy and making it hard for hipsters to pay their loans off from their liberal arts colleges. Therefore, hipsters have made a very sad and viscous cycle. Too bad it's not at all ironic.

Jack: Why is that kid coming out of Salvation Army with bags of clothes?

Betty: That boy is a hipster. He's against mainstream society!

Jack: Oh, I'm silly.

Betty: Yeah, you are.

Anyone who is NOT you.
Anonymous hipster friend: "Ugh, look at that fucking hipster! A PBR tattoo AND a handlebar moustache? What a dickhead."

You: "I know, right?" (mental note to self: shave moustache and get PBR tattoo removed A.S.A.P!)

* See ironic. Not to be confused with Alanis Ironic

Someone who believes that they are being unique and non-conformist, while in actuality they are all the same. Hipsters, while stressing individuality, all like the same general things: combat boots, cross jewelry, mermaids and american flag apparel for girls; skinny jeans and beanies for guys. Hipsters try so hard to be different that they are actually all alike. Hipsters most likely have a tumblr.
I'm such a hipster, I listen to indie music that nobody else has heard of, and buy all my clothes from vintage stores that nobody else goes to.

Usually in their late teens or early twenties... Male hipsters consist of sloppy facial hair looks, cheap flanel t-shirts, fixed-geared bikes, and ugly girlfriends. Female hipsters consist of facial piercings, bad body odor, straight up ugly outfits, loose clothing with bland ugly colors, and really bad teeth. Both male and female hipsters love to drink coffee, have "deep" conversations, smoke pot, drink alcohol, and "enjoy life"...
You can usually find poser hipsters at places like starbucks. Hipsters are against corporate america, and drinking at starbucks would be as corporate as you could get. It's pretty easy to spot poser hipsters considering every hipster is a poser. A stone cold poser. These people love to just to ruin nice urban areas.
