Hipster Clothing Guide:
Wherever you look, from any urban city in the world, one subculture that has prominently made its mark is the hipster generation. Marked by all things cool and anti-mainstream, this set of young men and women in their 20’s and 30’s value independent thinking, individuality, indie rock, art, and of course, their very own style of hipster clothing.
Born out of the early 90’s alternative music and art scene, this hipster style sensibility is considered to be the counterpart of 1960’s hippie fashion, with their penchant for looking like they just rolled out of bed. If you want to look like the ultimate hipster girl, it’s actually very easy – just raid your mom’s or boyfriend’s closet, put on an incredibly unique pair of shoes, and you’re good to go.
If you want your own closet to scream hipster, here are the 10 must-have hipster clothes and accessories that you need to have to get the look.
The Flannel Shirt
Based from the early 90’s grunge movement, it is the quintessential hipster girl must-have. Use it as it is with cut-offs, skinny jeans, or even as a cover up over a dress.
The Collared Top/Dress
Buttoned up shirts and peter pan collared dresses personify the quirky hipster girl. Completely button them up, pair with high waist shorts, opaque tights and ballet flats and you’ll definitely be the cute and quirky pixie girl on the block.
The Oversized Sweater
Hipster girls defy the norm by wearing clothes that reject society’s view of what is considered as attractive. Oversized sweaters, especially the Grandpa sweaters, hang on the body and cover up whatever shape the female body has. Comfortable and definitely having an “I don’t care,” vibe, wear the sweater as a dress and pair with a tattered pair of boots and you’re good to go.
The Boyfriend Jeans
Hipster girls love wearing boys’ clothes. Dressing androgynously is one of the tricks to looking like a hipster girl, so wear them with cuffed hems, a band shirt rolled on the sleeves, and cute ballet flats for a chic and tomboy ensemble.
The Chambray Top
This versatile piece is seen on every hipster girls’ wardrobe. Pair them with shorts, jeans, or even a skirt. Button them up, and you’ll definitely have that intellectual and creative look down to a pat.
The Thick Framed Glasses
This is the ultimate hipster girl accessory. Even if you’re just wearing a t-shirt and jeans, when you put on your thick-framed glasses, it instantly transforms you to the coolest hipster chic on the block.
Other must-have items are the SLR camera as an accessory, the beanies, boaters, and wide rimmed hats, the overall denims, and all sorts of chunky, tattered, and old school shoes. Emulate the look of someone who just rolled out of bed who put on the first thing she saw on the floor. But remember not to try too hard, though. The more mismatched you look, the better.
