The opposite of hippie, if you will. Used to mean "young urban proffessional" but now it is used as an insult towards young people who happen to wear suits.

It is also used as an insult to mean shallow, but conservative people.

Usually, yuppies are racist and xenophobic, and against abortions. They will exhibit a limited amount of intelligence and regurgitate news heard from such crappy channels as "FOX" or "NBC" or even "ABC" . Sometimes they are extremist Christian, but not often. Usually scientifically atheistic. It doesn't matter what colour their skin is, they can still be racist against their own.

They don't wear too much jewelry or makeup, and their music of choice is the horrific genre of "soft rock" or "easy listening". Their style of dress is conservative, but not bad considering the alternatives. They wear leather briefcases or nylon laptop bags, and have a sense of self-importance with their blackberry cellphones and their IPods.

They wear brand names like Eddie Bauer, Tommy Hilfiger, sometimes Armani and, if they feel funky, D&G. Coco Chanel is seen as an idol, but usually, the females will wear Coach bags, because these are more in fashion.

Yuppies like to pretend they're not following trends, but they follow trends just like townies and trendies do.
A yuppie is a corporate lawyer.
A business person is a yuppie.

The two Yuppie met at Starbucks and fell in love while comparing their L.L. Bean catalogs.

(n.) Used to stand for Young Urban Professionals, but has now strayed to define the 20-year-olds at Starbucks who type for hours on their laptops, probably writing a novel that they apparently want EVERYONE at Starbucks to be interested in. They often wear stylish black glasses, slim black clothing, tote yoga mats, and big bulky colored scarves regardless of the temperature outside. They are health conscious, live off salad and black coffee, and often frequent poetry slams and wear jaunty berets. If you ask them what they are writing about, expect to be either talked down to, or have them use the biggest words they can think of, even if they're out of context, hoping you don't know the meaning anyway.
Mitch: "Hey look, I've always wondered what it is those yuppies type away on."
Frank: "Bad idea man."
Mitch: "S'cuse me miss, can I ask what you're writing?"
Yuppie: (Looks up from coffee as if she's never seen people before) "It's an esoteric collectivist's detailed analysis of the resurgence of middle-American culture in relation to the increase in demand for soy milk since its invention in-"
Frank and Mitch have died.
