If you wonder are hipsters still a thing in 2021, my answer is a YES.
Being a hipster girl is way more than looking in certain ways, but instead, it’s more about individualism and staying true to themselves.
Not following the mainstream trends, hipster girls are just one-of-a-kind.
And ladies, if you are ready to give up your Chanel bag and Valentino heels and embrace graphic tees, flannel shirts, and oversized glasses, this article is for you.
That said, ahead are the 10 must-have pieces to look like a hipster girl.
1. WEAR A GRAPHIC TEE AS DAILY WEAR
First thing first, a graphic tee.
Whether that’s a slogan tee or a retro 80s graphic tee, that can work wonders.
Unlike the other trendy tops like the off-shoulder top and cropped shirt, the graphic tee just looks effortlessly cool with a dash of character.
If the “conventional” tee can’t satisfy you, go find some acid wash ripped graphic tees in the thrift store for an “I don’t give a damn” look.
Finish off the ensemble with a pair of mom jeans and vegan suede boots, this is how you stay cool even in the simplest outfits.
2. GO FOR A FLANNEL SHIRT
When it comes to the most iconic attire of hipster girls, plaids and flannel shirts are unarguably the ones.
With its timeless design, the pairing combos of a well-made flannel shirt can be truly endless.
For a hot summer look, throw on a simple black tee and shorts with a red flannel shirt wrapped around the waist just add a touch of spontaneity to your weekend ensemble.
Or else, feel free to wear it as a top and tuck it in the jeans.
Complete the look with a pair of Dr. Martin boots and a vintage-inspired updo with a headscarf, this retro look is sure to turn heads.
3. WEAR ALL KINDS OF TIGHTS & LEGGINGS
If you want to level up your hipster girl closet, I must tell you it’s worth investing in all kinds of tights and leggings.
For a hipster schoolgirl look, pair a graphic tee with an A-line skirt and cable knit thigh-high socks just to increase the aesthetic tenfolds.
As a petite girl, for footwear, I will always go for similar hues with the tights to maximize the leg flattering effect.
But if schoolgirl fashion is your thing, embracing a cool look with a felt hat in the all-black ensemble can be equally flattering.
Or else, get bold with a pair of fishnet tights for a sexy street style blend.
4. WEAR A SCARF AROUND THE NECK
There are countless ways to wear a scarf but for hipster girls, wearing the scarf around the neck is a no-brainer.
As a sleek way to pull on the long scarf in winter, this just sheds some bulkiness and makes you look more put-together.
For a cozy and cute getup, I love wearing an oversized sweater as the dress and throwing the scarf on top along with the sheer black tights.
Together with the pom beanie, it just looks darling with a subtle sense of lazy sexy vibes.
5. DUNGAREES ARE YOUR BEST FRIEND
If you think it’s impossible to dress dungarees as an adult, well, think again!
With the right mix and match, wearing dungarees can be ultra-modern.
First thing first, the color matters. Instead of going for light hues like baby blue, opt for dark shades for a more sophisticated look.
For a stylish winter look, pair a chunky beige turtleneck top with black denim dungarees just add a dash of whimsy to the OOTD.
And for the girls who want to spice up the look, consider wearing your overalls with one strap.
This wholly on-trend look just screams “I’ve got a style and I KNOW it”!
As for outerwear, this is certainly not a hipster girl’s style to wear structured formal outerwear like a long trench coat.
Instead, go for the shacket and slouchy jacket for a chill look.
6. BOHO MEETS HIPSTER
When it comes to the impeccable match, boho and hipster girls are meant to be friends as they just share so many similarities.
As both of the styles celebrate free spirits and authenticity, together, it just brings out the most tasteful look.
Want to stand out from the crowd at the music festival party?
Give it a go with a white cape shawl top and retro flare jeans to seal the deal.
Oops and don’t forget to bring your quirky round sunglasses as well. You’re welcome!
7. EMBRACE GRUNGE HIPSTER AESTHETIC
Want to style hipster fashion in an edgy way? Perhaps it’s time to get bold with the grunge aesthetic.
Characterized by dark hues, chokers, distressed jeans, and black boots, grunge fashion just echos with hipster apparel.
For an androgynous look, pair a skull graphic tee with the vegan leather biker jacket and Dr. Martin boots just highlighting the youthful rebelliousness.
If you want to de-emphasize the silhouette, throw on a baggy flannel shirt that can never go wrong.
8. GO FOR A SLOUCHY BAG
While there aren’t any specific bags to wear or not to wear, the canvas tote bags, slouchy boho bags, and vegan leather backpacks are certainly a few of the most popular ones in the hipster world.
As hipster girls value practicality and uniqueness far more than brand names, you can always find them wearing the big shoulder bag or the handmade one ordered from Etsy.
So yes, if you give hipster girls a choice between a Gucci cross-body bag or a bohemian patchwork shoulder bag, the high chance is they will choose the latter one.
9. DON’T FORGET YOUR OVERSIZED GLASSES
For the accessories, hats and oversized glasses are the staples of the hipster girls.
With the ultra-large lenses, the oversized glasses are worn as a fashion statement piece to express their style.
While someone may think it’s nerdy but to me, it’s just face-flattering as the large frames can always make my face appear to be smaller.
And if you are sick of the thick black frame glasses, opt for the feminine rose gold frame or stylish clear frames to freshen up the look.
I’m pretty sure you won’t be disappointed in these cute pairs.
10. WEAR DR. MARTIN & BOOTS AS FOOTWEAR
Last note, the footwear.
Basically, anything but comfy and practical. So yes, the smart hipster girls will never sacrifice their feet for an Instagram-able OOTD.
Instead, a pair of wearable converse and Dr. Martin boots are more than enough to take them from one cafe to another cafe.
