Stands for Young Urban Professional. Yuppies are usually the children of doctors and lawyers, hold Master's degrees from Ivy League universities, and are very concerned with their appearance. Many were in fraternities and many live in expensive houses or apartments.

Yuppies can typically be seen in large metropolitan areas such as Portland or New York. Their wardrobe consists of grey, black or khakhi slacks, usually with grey, striped or pastel colored suit jackets and shirts. Yuppies typically take the idea of competing for social status extremely seriously. Their culture revolves around Starbucks coffee, expensive foreign restaurants and romantic comedies starring Julia Roberts or Tom Hanks. Yuppies generally only hold political views that are considered trendy.
Many yuppies go into fields such as politics, big business, public administration, medicine and law. You may have worked for one.
The most popular movie about yuppie culture is American Psycho.

Yuppies are what happens to hipsters and preps when they grow up.

Self absorbed pompous, selfish, spoiled and morally corrupt individuals between the ages of 25 and 40. Usually have a master’s degree and a hot wife or girlfriend. They love $7.00 cups of coffee, European cars, designer clothing, outrageously expensive homes and watching the stock market 24/7.

They’ll have one or two kids that tend to be little versions of their parents – spoiled, loud and demand attention. Their wives never work and spend most of their time at the mall, at the spa, at Starbucks with other yuppie wives or banging the pool boy because they’re husbands are too busy making more money.

Acronym for Young Urban Professional. Group whose culture blends the hippie/counterculture values of the 60s and the materialistic monetary-based values of the 80s. Usually congregate in Starbuck's, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and a wide variety of vintage clothing boutiques. Includes both moderate Liberals (Majority of yuppies), and moderate Conservatives (smaller group of yuppies), although both the far left and the far right enjoy dissing them.
far left dude: I hate these damn yuppies! They claim to be "artists" and "bohemians", yet their materialistic pursuits embody the very antithesis of the counterculture, and price real "artists" like me out of the neighborhoods they move to!

far right dude: I hate these damn yuppies. I can't stand they flaunt their metrosexuality with their designer labels, lattes, luxury cars, and globally conscious health food stores. It's european-wannabe wimps like them that corrupt America!

A yuppie is an acronym for a "Young Urban Prossesional." These people are, plainly, cunts. To go more in depth, these people are commonly white, but there is a large black and asian group as well. They commonly shop at brand name stores, or stores made/named after white people: Prada, Gucci, Calvin Klein. They drive luxury vehicles like BMWs and Jaguars. Yuppies usually have extremely gay names like Spencer, Hunter, Chad, Link, Randolph, Tucker, etc. They thoroughly enjoy money and flaunting just how much many they have. Like the Nazis were responsible for the Holocaust, yuppies are responsible for gentrification. They usually move into ethnic, working-class neighborhoods, purchase these low cost houses, knock them down and build luxury condos. They move here for a taste of culture and "urbanity," but then they wonder where all the culture has gone when the blue collar natives were forced to move away due to rising property taxes and no where to live. Places faced by this plag include: SoHo, Hell's Kitchen, Charlestown (MA).
Chad (Yuppie 1)- Hey hunter, would you enjoy playing tennis down by where the street hockey courts used to be?

Hunter (Yuppie 2)- Yes! Then we should jog to the local pub in our Prada jumpsuits!

Link (Yuppie 3)- Then we can go to my condo and listen to Jazz!

Seamus (blue collar worker)- Go fuck yourselves.
