Hipsters Decoded

Whether you’re a hipster starter keen to get in the game, or a closet hipster, these benchmarks would be your guide to identifying your hipster niche and inner hipster level.

 

WEEKEND TO-DO LIST

Indie music festivals, pop-up markets and cafes that most often than not, is a journey itself just to get to (the more inaccessible, the better) fit right at the top of your to-do list.

 

If that’s even possible, you’d eat off food trucks serving elevated grubs all day err day!

 

This 10 & 11 December, look out for The Handy-Craft Market, happening at The Cathay. Think fairy lights, local designers, and heaps of festive cheer. Is it Christmas yet?

YOU ARE WHAT YOU LISTEN TO

Can always trust a hipster to introduce some good music! Often labelled the music snobs, hipsters pride themselves on the ear for discovering the good stuff. If the likes of The XX or Arcade Fire is on your playlist, you’re on the right track. Up your game by going vinyl.

OLD IS THE NEW BLACK

From fixed gear bikes to vinyl, thick rimmed glasses, Vespa and lumberjack beards, hipsters are bringing vintage back like how JT brings sexy back.

 

We say you’re way pass entry-level hipster if you are man enough to don a well groomed beard.
