Living a hipster lifestyle is about so much more than old rock band tees, skinny jeans and worn out vans. Think beyond fashion and explore the music, arts and the individuality with which you lead your life.

Hipster Lifestyle: Indie Music

The definition of hipster has its roots in the jazz music of the 30′s and 40′s. But if we modernize the definition, today’s hipsters identify with indpendent (or indie) music. Indie artists are lesser known, have independent labels that don’t produce mainstream “formula” music. Some popular indie artists include XXXXXX.

Hipster Lifestyle: Reject Blind Consumerism

The hipster lifestyle goes beyond clothes and into everyday living. Ready to get some groceries? You’ll be heading to the coop on an upright, one speed bike. Ready to go out for the evening? How about using that same bike to frequent a local bar? While some hipsters are known for their love of Apple gadgets, others prefer to tote analog cameras and pagers. Hipsters would rather redecorate their homes with items from thrift and antique stores than Target. Finds include rotary telephones, antique lamps and XXXXXX.

Hipster Lifestyle: Individualized

Hipsters take old things and make them their own. That means even if you don’t have an entire wardrobe of hipster style outfits, you can accessorize with a few key pieces and personalize your look so it doesn’t conform to societal norms. The hipster lifestyle doesn’t need to take a lot of time and effort, as long as you know what your true style is and aren’t afraid to share it with the world!
