people who crave attention/security and try to obtain it by being unnatural or "counter-culture." Often they dress in vintage clothing or random articles of clothing that would not be worn usually at that time. ie: a skull-cap during the summer or not suitable clothing for a certain occasion. Frequently hipsters meet people by being different and usually become friends with that person until they must appear "counter-culture" to the rest of the world in their attempt to meet more people and gain a false security in a group. Most do not have friends and are often seen alone in an unfamiliar environment or dazing off in the distance with company of another person(s).
See that weirdly dressed girl staring off in the distance? I bet she's a hipster.

I saw Eli Fuld riding his fixie the other day. How anti-mainstream of him. He's the only hipster in YU.

Hipster” is a term co-opted for use as a meaningless pejorative in order to vaguely call someone else’s authenticity into question and, by extension, claim authenticity for yourself.

It serves no conversational function and imparts no information, save for indicating the opinions and preferences of the speaker.

Meanwhile, a market myth has sprung up around the term, as well as a cultural bogeyman consisting of elusive white 20-somethings who wear certain clothes (but no one will agree on what), listen to certain music (no one can agree on this either), and act a certain way (you’ve probably sensed the pattern on your own).

You can’t define what “that kind of behavior or fashion or lifestyle” actually is, nor will you ever be able to. That’s because you don’t use “hipster” to describe an actual group of people, but to describe a fictional stereotype that is an outlet for literally anything that annoys you.

The twist, of course, is that if it weren’t for your own insecurities, nothing that a “hipster” could do or wear would ever affect you emotionally. But you are insecure about your own authenticity - “Do I wear what I wear because I want to? Do I listen to my music because I truly like it? I’m certainly not like those filthy hipsters!” - so you project those feelings.

Suffice it to say, no one self-identifies as a hipster; the term is always applied to an Other, to separate the authentic Us from the inauthentic, “ironic” Them.
Person 1: Lol, that guy is such a hipster! Let's make fun of him and make ourselves look cool! Aren't I so funny guys!!

Person 1:...Guys?

Person 2: Your ignorance is sickening. Just leave.

a "hipster": vneck wearing, pot smoking, photography lover, bike riding, skinny jean, weird-ass music listener. they are very easy to find step into stores such as, Forever 21, Urban Outfiters, American Apparel blah blah blah... Hipsters HATE being called "scene kids". When you go into their myspace profile all you see is random retarded photography. They usually have large friend counts too. When they take photos they usually cover their mouths and heavily photoshop the pictures. Hipsters have taken over sites such as myspace, facebook, twitter and the most famous one TUMBLR. They think there cool because they wear ugly shoes and ride fixed gear bikes. Hipsters are like roaches. They can survive anything....even a nuclear bomb. but the most important thing you have to know about a hipster is....THEY ARE F*CKING ANNOYING
Guy 1: dude that scene bitch on myspace "WhoIsKat" is fucking annoying. Guy 2: oh shes no scene shes a "hipster" Guy 1: dude can we just kill her already?!!?!

Aged indie kids, Hipsters still maintain the air of snobbery, still shop at salvation army, and still have a completely astonishing array of knowledge when it comes to obscure music, pop-culture non-sequiturs, and political sneers. Absolutely a blast to be friends with, hell to be enemies of, hipsters are the most bi-polar of all the stereotypes when it comes to how they treat you. Can be recognized by books like "The Clockwork Orange", "Everything is Illuminated", or obscure philosophy books, by authors akin to Dostoevsky.
"Dude, remember sarah?"
"yeah, that little indie kid, why?"

"Oh, our little indie kid has transformed into a hipster butterfly!"
