I’Ve Heard You Aren’T Just Going To Be Hipster, And Truthfully Idc I Just Like The Look. So Any Suggestions Welcome. Any Stores, Any Clothing Styles, Shirts, Jeans, Shoes. I’M A 17 Year Old Boy So Lets See What We Can Do.
Know the labels. Several labels cater to the hipster scene; the more well-known include American Apparel, Vans, Brandy Melville, Pacsun, Free People, and Urban Outfitters.
Avoid buying labeled gear from stores run by the label itself (so very not nice consumerism). Instead, look for independent retailers because supporting obscure retailers is “totally deck”. For example, buy from local mixed fashion stores near you.
Wear skinny jeans. These can be for anyone of any gender identity. Hipster men tend to be as skinny as the women.
Note that guy hipsters actually probably wear skinny jeans more than the girls (girls prefer leggings)
Alternatively, for women, high-waisted pants (a.k.a. “mom jeans”) may also be worn.
Wear glasses. Hipsters love ironic eyewear such as shuttershades, oversized plastic framed glasses, Buddy Holly glasses, and most commonly authentic Ray Ban Wayfarers in all the colors of the rainbow.
Some hipsters wear eyeglasses even though they have 20/20 vision! In this case, pop out the lenses or make sure they’re just regular glass.
Wear ironic tops. For tops, the following are good picks: band shirts such as Pink Floyd, Metallica, Van Halen, etc, plaid shirts, cowboy shirts, flannels, and anything in gingham, plaid, checkers, paisley, vintage florals.
Many hipsters sport tops with appliques, images of animals or forests, other images, characters from children’s TV, and ironic sayings or even book covers.
Fitted hoodies are perfect, too.
Dress vintage. Dresses are good for women, preferably vintage floral or lace. Granny’s closet is definitely a good source; however, you should know how to sew and restyle vintage clothing to fit you.
Find suitable footwear. Hipster shoes include cowboy boots, Converse, and a range of flats.
Converse are no longer universal. They look great and you can wear them pretty much anywhere, but since everyone wears them, Steve Madden combat boots, Doc Martens or any other vintage shoes are also an option.
If it’s trainers you’re after, see Classic Reeboks.
For girls, heels should be at least 5 inches in height, and ankle booties are popular too. Cute sandals, Keds, boots, and granny boots are not only more practical but also show how little effort you’ve put forth (even if it took you ages to find the perfect pair).
Accessorize. There is a wide range of accessories, including large flower headbands, neon nail polish, pins, bright belts, black nailpolish, bird necklaces, patterned and colorful leggings, etc.
Don’t forget your plugs, piercings, and random scars supposedly acquired through woodwork and other carpenter-like endeavors.
Appropriately ironic accessories are mandatory, such as things kids would take to school, like an animal image on a lunchbox.
Essentials include a courier bag (not a backpack), preferably something from Freitag, that can fit your MacBook, iPhone, and vinyl LPs (never CDs) of your current favorite band.
Mismatch and layer. Layering or wearing things that don’t match together is very hipster. It’s that “I can’t be bothered” look that actually takes some planning until you get into the habit.
Remember that a hipster’s outfit never needs adjustment should you decide to go to the beach — keep all of your urban accompaniments for the sand and surf to ironically stick out of your element.
