n. adj. from the English "hip" meaning too cool for public school. Anyone beneath the age of 40 who gives a shit about Brian Eno, David Bowie, and Jorge Luis Borges. Typically majors in English, Visual Arts, or Film Studies. Wouldn't be caught dead wearing any shoe other than Vans or Chuck Taylors. Considers local bands no one's ever heard of more important than food and shelter. Considers moving from the suburbs to a former ghetto a justified version of "white flight". Can be seen in abundance in Portland, Oregon and Williamsburg, Brooklyn; and to a lesser extent Austin, Texas and Athens, Georgia.
I used to like The Flaming Lips, but my HIPSTER friend suggested that Cat Power was more my speed.

Despite the intent - a total commoner. All the attributes have previously been described. These are the "penguins" of modern youth culture. The real artists and musicians don't generally have much time to be "seen" at bars and coffeehouses.
I really don't care about your 3-chord music, hipster.

Hipsters, or anti-conformists with track bikes, can usually be found in groups in the center your town or city, whether they be postin' up straight up smokin' some camels, drinking energy drinks or alcohol to get smashed, just chillin', or going on a bike raid reppin' their area . Most OC Hipsters claim to be liberals and are the most ardent activists, sporting their Obama "Change" T-shirts or wearing their Toms shoes (When Toms are purchased an identical pair is sent to children in Africa) without socks (because they are most likely made by exploited children in sweatshops, or they want to show off their ankle tattoo) thinking that their insignificant lives make a difference (out of school and unemployed). OC Hipsters can definitely be identified by their ripped jean shorts, baseball caps, messy hair, vintage clothes, cigarettes, neon sunglasses, tattoos, messenger bags, Deep V-Neck shirts (to show off their chest tattoos) or D-Necks, amply called douche necks. They listen to Indie/Electro bands you've never heard off (and for good reason because most of them sound like white noise) because they want to be unique and different. They hate their parents, but they definitely love their fixed gear bikes, usually adorning them with promotional stickers or bright colors. They use phrases and words like: "postin up", "chillin", "straight up", "forsure", and "down", because normal vocabulary is so cliche.
Jon: " Hey bro, wanna go post up on our fixies with the crew?"

Brandon: " Jon, you're such a hipster "

A group of people who try way too hard, this subculture can be identified by males who wear skinny clamdigger jeans, ironic t-shirts, and sneakers that were only made prior to 1976. And females in thick glasses. Hipsters reject everything "mainstream" and conformist even though they are the most judgemental and conformist group in many cities. They fall over each other in attempts to be the nerdiest looking nerd in the group and are willing to deal with extreme pain and discomfort from wearing skinny jeans in order to fit in and conform to the hipster look.
Hipster 1: Look at those conformist losers drinking their Starbucks coffees.

Hipster 2: Yeah, they suck. They probably listen to mainstream music.

Hipster 1: Totally. Hey where did you get your new skinny jeans and ironic Atari T-shirt? I want a pair just like them so I can be just like you and fit in amongst the hipster crowd.

Hipster 2: You can't buy them, as I got them at the thrift store along with my ironic T-shirt and these thick-rimmed glasses.

Hipsters are akin to posers. The age range generally is between the ages of 17-25. Hipsters tend to listen to random indie bands that no one has ever heard of just to try an act cool amongst their friends even if the music isn't good at all. Hipsters are usually smug and think that they are on a higher plateau than that of their peers. When attending school hipsters usually have the "Pocahontas" backpack just to try and be different. Hipsters also try to rebel by smoking cigarettes in a circle of a large group of people whether or not the people in that circle are smokers, they just think that it gives them that edginess and coolness that they so desperately strive for. In summary Hipsters can be classified as a hybrid of a douchebag and poser who tries to act cooler than everyone around them and will convince themselves that they are the only one that matters.
Casual Wear: Dark thick rimmed glasses, short hair (possibly styled), wears clothing with stripes all the time, they will only wear converses.

Ways to use "Hipster" in a sentence

I'm wearing a polo, I hope I don't get taken for a Hipster.

Look at that group of Hipsters, all of them with the same shirt but just a different color.

A Hispter is a grown up scene kid. Too old to be a scenester, yet too young to say no to the common trend. Trendy. Grown up sceneyboppers.
Lindsay: Look at that hipster! OMG.

Ashley: Wait. Isnt't that a scenester?

Lindsay: No. He was most likely scene at a younger age, but now he's older and on to being hip!

Ashley: Oh. Still pretty much looks the same to me.

A subculture of disaffected twenty-somethings that are characterized by their fickle attitudes toward basically everything. Their chronic un- or under-employment gives them plenty of time to listen to music, visit obscure art galleries, drink lots of coffee and alcohol, chain smoke, and read independently-published newspapers and magazines. By the time they figure out what they want, they've already onto something else because what they want might be what someone else wants and they don't want to identify with that person(s). You won't find them at suburban shopping malls. Try looking in the trunk of an AMC Hornet.
"Well, what've we got ourselves here, another hipster, eh?"
