A poseur is someone who dresses untrendy, because they think it's the lastest trend. Poseurs don't really like they style they imitate; they just dress that way to be cool, popular, or just so people will like them. They are fake, pathetic people.
me: I was uncool before uncool was cool.
poseur: I'm uncool because uncool is cool.

Get a poseur mug for your cousin Jerry.
anybody who 'likes'/does/wears/listens to/supports something to either fit in or to stand out.
these people have no self respect and often no self confidence which leads to them constantly working their image and not being themselves.
anybody who labels themselves as part of a social sub-culture (eg. punk, goth, hippy etc) could be seen as being a poseur.
most people are, in fact, poseurs. especially those who spend their entire lives trying to be 'crazy' 'unique' or 'random'
their insecure natures often lead to frequent style changes.
poseur 1: omg! red herring is selling Emily the Strange! Let's buy a shirt and be cool!!!

poseur 2: omg! red herring is selling Emily the Strange! That's not fair! i love Emily the Strange, but I can never wear my Emily the Strange shirt again because people will think i'm a poseur!

Genuine Person 1: hey look, red herring is selling Emily the Strange. I
really like Emily the Strange and i'm glad that there is yet another place i can buy Emily the Strange products now.

Genuine Person 2: hey look, red herring is selling Emily the Strange. That's cool, but i still don't like Emily the Strange.

Some one who tries to be what they are not. And not matter how much some peeps want to deny it, you can be a poseur prep as well.

Also, in my opinion, you are a poseur if you won’t hang out or talk to someone because they don’t look/act like you. Yup, even if you know a lot about a certain group, you can be a poseur.

Just because you don’t remember a song title doesn’t mean you’re a poseur. I forget sometimes. And I admit it. But anyone can know the name of a song, but not know the music. It’s sad that I am considered a poseur because I don’t care about song names. And, you can like a song but not like a band. I like Girlfriend (by Avril Lavign) but I don’t like her.

Also, calling some one a poseur doesn’t make you a poseur. My dad calls people poseurs, especially when they try to be punk. (BTW peeps…punk isn’t about the way you dress…its about the music, it’s the way you think…its who you are.)

And why is it because you buy something that you don’t know how to use or w/e makes you a poseur? My friends bought himself a skate and then taught himself how to skate. Does that mean he’s a wannabe skater? No, it doesn’t. it means he wanted to learn to do something and he needed the skate to learn. Also, Myspace. Just because someone gets a myspace doesnt mean they are a poseur. Myspace is good for communication and helps keep you in contact with old friends.

wearing converse doesnt make me punk
wearing mini skirts doesnt make me a prep
wearing skinny jeans and bows doesnt make me scene
chains don't make me gansta
eyeliner doesnt make me goth
black doesnt make me emo
dance doesnt make me a jock or weak
crying doesnt mean i'm sad
liking disney doesnt make me immature
make-up and low cut shirts dont make me a slut
just because i dont like milk, eggs and cheese doesnt mean i'm vegan

but all those things together makes me me. so what if one day i wanna walk around in vans and jeans one day and heels and a dress the next. so what if i like to mix things up a little. and so what if i want to dance and wear tutu's. thats just how i roll. but it doesn't make me a poseur. yes you COULD call me punk. maybe even scene. but the truth is, i'm just being me.

Someone who tries to fit in by pretending to like things they know nothing about. People who rely on the talent of great artists to make them look cool because they claim to like it. Most rappers who can't actually write their own music and have to scratch some classic rock song could be considered poseurs. Anyone who owns a guitar with no intention of ever really learning to play it. Anyone who has a picture of themselves playing guitar that doesnt really know how to play.

(hint: if you don't get it you are probably a poseur)
