Top definition
A portmanteau of the words Chicano and Hipster. They are typically educated, better-off and younger Mexican-Americans who retain some of their parents' Chicano culture, while also integrating modern American hipster appearances such as skinny jeans and flannel.
Boyle Heights has seen soaring property values and cost-of-living due to all the chipsters moving back to the traditionally low-income and homogeneously Mexican neighborhood; they tend to congregate at coffee shops such as Primera Taza.

-(noun) A hybrid of Chicago archetypes chad and hipster: The chipster is truly a chad at heart bringing all the innate baggage associated with being a vain, ignorant, Big 10 fun boy with him as he externally transforms into the Wicker Park staple hipster. This quasi-transformation can be easily spotted by the telltale Pabst t-shirt and excessively spikey hair.
That Lincoln Park chipster is such a poser, he doesn't even listen to indie music.

Cross between the hipster and chav. Regulary seen on Tumblr. Attempt to become so non-mainstream that they are actually mainstream. Think they are being different and 'indie', but are just the same as everybody else. Commonly wear vans, geek glasses and lots of fake tan.

Chav + Hipster = Chipster.
See a girl walking down the street wearing red vans, cut off levis and too much fake tan?
