Hipsters: an enigmatic species. Often found sipping flat whites made with the latest nut milk, or mentally examining the meaning of life while slumped against a graffiti ridden wall. The hipster has evolved from misunderstood creative to the modern style icon. You might think that these crisp, tapered silhouettes are restricted to freelance writers in libraries or up-and-coming indie bands – but you’re wrong. You can channel the hipster style in any which way you choose. It’s your chance to get creative with your image, take risks and express yourself. As for the facial hair? That’s your call.
Hipster fashion has come a long way in the last few years. Basically, it’s all about timeless pieces, fused together with a bit of fun.
So, you think you can be a hipster? You’ve got your deep, dark, creative thinking face down pat, you’ve given up dairy and you think your ankles could spend a little extra time peeping out the bottom of your jeans. You, good sir, are halfway there.
If you just mentally sang Livin’ On A Prayer in your head just then, we’d like to personally invite you to be our best friend.
Next up, you’ll need these core hipster style pieces.
Accessories are a hipster’s best friend – not to mention a fun way to get creative with your style. Think patterned socks that reveal themselves as you hitch up your work pants, or a felt hat that perfectly highlights your chiselled jaw line and barber-curated facial hair. The sky really is the limit. Hipster accessories will tie your look together, and give you the confidence to express your new look.
The tighter the better. We joke, the fit is really up to you. However you feel best comfortable, but the fitted, rolled sleeved shirt creates a true hipster style. Tuck it into your jeans and team with a slim belt for a smart, put-together look that can take you from work to play. Feel free to experiment with prints and colours to up the hipster-ometer, and just have fun with it.
The chinos are where you really get to show off your hipster ankle game. We’re not kidding. The more ankle, the better.
In all seriousness, though, chinos are a classic piece. Evergreen and season-proof. They deserve pride of place in your wardrobe, and – rolled up – they give you the chance to show off your footwear.
Brown lace up brogue styles create a more formal hipster look – you know, for when you find yourself at a cool graphic design studio, or perhaps off on a date. For daytime, a more comfortable, relaxed shoe is optimum. Think structured leisure footwear. These will pull the outfit together and set the tone for an effortless look.
