Someone who thinks their cool because they aren't "mainstream" but in reality have become mainstream by trying not to be mainstream. A paradox in and of itself.

Someone who believes that they are being unique and non-conformist, while in actuality they are all the same. Hipsters, while stressing individuality, all like the same general things: combat boots, cross jewelry, mermaids and american flag apparel for girls; skinny jeans and beanies for guys. Hipsters try so hard to be different that they are actually all alike. Hipsters most likely have a tumblr.
I'm such a hipster, I listen to indie music that nobody else has heard of, and buy all my clothes from vintage stores that nobody else goes to.

the true meaning of what it is to be a fag who craves attention. These scum sit around, criticizing anyone and everyone who isn't in their circle at starbucks with a laptop sucking dick. They tend to be found in groups and will often look at you in disgust if you so much as make eye contact with them, this will be preceded by whispers, probably whispers of their homosexual tendencies. Most of them suck at playing one particular instrument and form together to make an indie band. Hipsters always love to be out of the main stream, when in fact, they are second in main stream culture, next to the swag fags.

Hipsters are too cool for Urban Dictionary. You probably don't know what they use because it's underground.
The hipster's skinny jeans tore at the crotch, and it turned out he wasn't a man after all.

A person with cultivated eccentricities which are treated very seriously yet at the same time as an inside joke. These traits or markings are odd enough to look out of place, yet tame enough to be shrugged off as a matter of taste. They may include choice of facial hair, clothes, food and drink preference, fashion accessories, vehicles, and listening music. Hipsters are particularly fond of listening to sub-mediocre bands whose songs have sweet and melancholic lyrics, in order to affirm their out-of-the-mainstream eccentricity.
She likes wearing shirts with cute animals that brutally murder one another, and whenever someone mentions bacon she raves about it. What a hipster.

a person who does not believe in today's pop culture because it is too "mainstream". However, a good hipster would not admit to being a hipster because hipsterism itself would be considered too mainstream..
person: youre such a hipster
hipster: how dare you compare me to them U: *rages*

Hipsters are a 21st Century subculture that, in an attempt to reject having a uniform style of dress or artistic taste, has developed a uniform style of dress and artistic taste. Hipsters wear sunglasses in winter and checked shirts and scarves all year round, and short shorts (regardless of whether the hipster is male or female). Hipsters wear Toms shoes and have multiple tattoos. Sometimes hipsters wear waistcoats. Hipsters often smoke, even though they are also proud of being well educated and live healthy, green lifestyles. Hipsters drink locally-brewed beer in cans.

Hipsters often speak about esoteric musical bands from decades past, or bands from small towns few have heard of, but which are now based in Greenwich Village. When other hipsters (or worse, members of the general public) have heard of these bands, hipsters feel great frustration. Skilled hipsters mask this frustration by instead denouncing the band, explaining, "I was just trying to talk about a band you probably had heard of, because I am a really inclusive person, and I didn't want anyone to feel left out."

Hipsters often feel they are the best adjudicators of art, including films, music, literature and poetry, and visual art. The average hipster has read 2000 more novels than the nearest hipster in the cafe he or she is doing nothing in.

Hipsters often have no fixed income, yet they have all of the latest technology, most of which have a white apple symbol.
"Do you see that guy with the designer stubble, the tie-scarf combo, the coke bottle glasses, the skin-tight jeans, the leather boots, a tattoo on his arm that says 'RAMONES', and that walkman that probably doesn't even have batteries in it?"

"Sure do. Why does he have so much swag?"

"Because he's a hipster."

"I see. Makes sense."
