Let's Hear it for the Boys

Attention Fashionistos, what exactly is a ‘”hipster”? It’s recently become a word that has been watered down and used so often that we’ve forgotten its true meaning. While there are solid definitions of the term, I’ve been trying to find my own definition of the word as it relates to fashion.

For those of you that don’t know what a hipster looks like, just take a look at this Fashionisto. Personally, I find him to be a perfect image of what a hipster typically looks like. Spotted wearing a pair of red skinny jeans, a dark gray, long sleeve, thermal T-shirt, beige suede desert boots and most importantly, a heather gray thermal beanie.  I find it to be extremely common to find a “hipster” wearing a beanie. While they’re easily found at any clothing store, they’re also are very versatile and cheap. Not to mention, they come in many shapes, sizes, colors, and fabrics making it easy for any fashionable man to wear as an accessory.

While this Fashionisto may represent a typical outfit for a “hipster” to wear, there really is no strict guidelines.

Hint: Don’t be afraid to rock a beanie! The store PacSun has tons of brands, styles and colors. Be sure to check out their selection of beanies by visiting them in store or online.
