A subculture of men or women who value progressive politics, creativity, and independent thinking.
The main, most recognized, idea of the hipster is to reject the mainstream. . This means Harry Potter, Hollister, Aeropostale, or anything related in popularity is shunned.
Also, hipsters are open to anything when it comes to love. They support gay, transgender, bisexual, lesbian, etc.
Because of their value of independent thinking, hipsters do not tend to lean towards the average tanning bed, bleached blonde girl. They like different. Different is good for them.
You can find hipsters at little known coffee shops, art exhibits, or random parts of town.
Women tend to wear haircuts that are very edgy- such as shaggy layers or a-symmetric side swept bangs.
Some hipster "trademarks" are thick rimmed glasses, weather faux or real, oxford shoes, saddle shoes, and tight jeans.
Most modern day hipsters have also gone towards aztec prints and Forever 21.
Some stores that tend towards the hipster style are American Apparel and Urban Outfitters.
Person 1: "Hey, I saw this coffee shop downtown! It looks really nice! Let's go sometime?"
Person 2: "Okay, but that place is plagued with hipsters."
