The word âhipsterâ means different things to different peopleâ¦
While it originated in the 1940âs Jazz era, itâs now generally associated with millennials who are into artisan foods, super-progressive viewpoints, and preferences for all-things alternative, including lifestyles and music. But even these core hipster values barely scrape the tip of the iceberg. As we explore the hipster style, perhaps we can gain greater insight on these modern day rebels who have such a lack of concern for what you, or anyone else thinks.
But who actually cares what the critics think? Letâs face it, if there wasnât a little bit of controversy surrounding the âassassins of coolâ, then they simply wouldnât be as cool as they are. Hipsters are modern day rebels because they go against the grain. Non-hipsters want to be hipsters simply because of the attractive qualities of a free spirited individual who refuses to conform, follow tradition, or succumb to the customs of every generation before.
Whether you see a hipster rockinâ tight pants and round-framed glasses, or a grunge jacket from the 90s, thereâs always going to be someone telling them to fall in line.
Well guess what people, falling in line just isnât what we do. Weâre here to shake things up, live a sweet life, and do epic shit.
Just keep doing you!
