To become a hipster, adopt hipster fashion, widen your music tastes, talk like a hipster, be creative, increase your intelligence and be open minded. Hipsters do not conform to popular culture and expectations.
- Adopt hipster fashion
Shop at thrift stores, and adopt an old-school fashion sense. Distressed jeans are especially popular with hipsters. Avoid following fashion trends at all costs.
- Widen your music range
Listen to new and undiscovered music. Consider listening to your favorite music genre in another language. Go to underground clubs to discover new bands.
- Talk like a hipster
Use witty humor and references in your speech. Include quotes in conversation, and incorporate your own personality into your speech.
- Be creative
Pursue music, writing, poetry or another creative talent. If you don't currently have any creative talents, learn to play an instrument or try other creative hobbies.
- Improve your intelligence
Take every opportunity to learn. Familiarize yourself with world politics. Get behind a cause, and advocate for it. Hipsters are generally intelligent, vocal and opinionated.
- Be open-minded
See the world from other people’s perspectives. Stand up for a cause, and avoid following popular opinion, especially if you do not agree with it. Peace and nonviolence are at the core of the hipster culture.
