Who are hipsters and how do they differ from mere mortals
Hipsters are often called indie-ciders. Most often, young people and girls aged 16 to 25 join this movement. Who are hipsters? A portrait of a typical indie-kid: a representative of the middle class, not indifferent to alternative music, art house films, design, fashion and art. Most hipsters strictly follow the latest fashion trends of their world, carefully select brands and seek to conform to their own canons. Many critics and adults, once former ideological rebels, metalworkers, pitching, rockers, bikers, etc. the very idea of this direction causes attacks of aggression. Like, how can you neglect the constant style and rush from one to the other?
For hipsters is not a priority creation of something new, hitherto unprecedented. The first place is the task of being aware of what's new. In their environment, they rarely talk about such banal and mundane things as sex or work. All conversations are centered around something sublime, created or imposed ideals, judgments, philosophies.
To understand who these hipsters are, one should penetrate their way of thinking. What will we find there, with seven seals? In fact, everything is extremely simple. Generation, whose representatives are most often hipsters are children literally "thrown" into the world of cozy online diaries, love on the Internet, accustomed to always look for something new and unusual on the expanses of the network. Accustomed to consider themselves a pronounced personality and suddenly saw in the network a huge number of the same children as they. This is a huge blow to the ego of any teenager. Hence the passion for various non-formal hobbies, strange taste preferences, interests and hobbies.
For example, typical hipster clothes are tightened jeans "skinny" (variant - multicolored leggings), stretched t-shirts, sweaters with "zodiac vintage", sneakers, voluminous scarves and spectacles in a massive frame, allowing to create an image of an intellectual and "smart guy". You can immediately understand that the young man is a hipster: his clothes really stand out against the background of the general mass. However, it is necessary to give hipsters proper: sometimes their "outfits" are very stylish and effective, albeit artificially negligent.
Who are hipsters? In fact, they appeared long before the spread of the Internet and high technologies. Young people who want to stand out from the gray crowd, defend their views, beliefs, abandon the "stupid", imposed by adults, stereotypes. Think about it, because they always were! Just for each era had its own movement: first - nihilists, then - bright and living in the atmosphere of yearning for the unknown west of the style. Finally, the same hippies can also be attributed to some extent to hipsters.
All these people are driven by one thing - the desire to be heard. Simply every era is looking for its own ways to achieve this goal. Therefore, the question of who such hipsters, it would be more logical to answer that this is all us. After all, we all want to be different from our friends and acquaintances, to be at the center of everyone's attention. However, for some reason, it is easier for us to equate the word "hipster" to dirt than to try to change the world around us. Perhaps you will say that hipsters do not change the world in any way. But this is not so. Think about at least one thing: would you now read these lines if the hipster did not exist?
