What punks/skaters/goths call people who try to be punks/skaters/goths but are too mainstream. Personally I think that this whole "anything that's mainstream is bad" idea is retarded. Don't you people realize that if you're punk, goth, skater, or whatever you are that you're still conforming, just to a different group? When everybody's an "individual," no one is. The people you call "posers" are the ones who do what they want and don't care what anybody else thinks, and thats the way it should be. Who the hell are you to decide whats "punk" and whats not? If people think they're punk but they wear Abercrombie, then just let them be, they're being themselves.
I'm a girl, and I wear Abercrombie and American Eagle clothes. I also wear a lot of pink and I wear makeup to school. But if you look in my garage, you will find a $130 skateboard and about 10 different ramps and grind bars. Call me a poser if you want, but I'm just being myself.

Any one who does not follow his/her own ideas of what he/she likes. Following no one set norm makes you real and following no one set norm makes you poser. Poser is governed not by the clothes, music, or makeup you wear, but rather by the state of your mind and the conformity to your own beliefs.
Posers conform to the beliefs of others.

A person who attempts to blend into a specific social group.
Justin was such a poser-goth; sure, he comes to school in all black, but he doesn't even know who Edgar Allen Poe is.

a person - usually in middle or high school, who is insecure about him/herself and trys very hard not to be a "conformist" or a "prep," by doing things like: purchasing a skateboard or guitar, purchasing a great deal of clothing and accessories from hot topic, and listening to pop-punk bands such as simple plan, yellowcard, etc. usually, this supposedly "nonconformist" behavior just backfires on him/her, because now he/she is still conforming, just to a different group of people. so the moral of the story is to be yourself.
some people are posers.

A poser is someone who tries hard to be something they arent. Usually, posers call other people posers because they are jealous that the person they called a poser is more skater/stoner/goth/punk/rocker/grunge/etc. than they will ever be.
