Five Hipster Trends That Dominate My Peripheral Vision

They’re cool, they’re hip, they know what’s going on! They know the score, have the numbers, are aware of the latests apps, and they are seen in hip places, such as fancy-schmancy coffee shops and cafes. (As long as there’s Wi-Fi there!) These folks are legends in their own minds, and everyone looks up to, well, looks at, well, never mind...
Here are five things commonly owned by the roaming hipsters among us! How do Whether male or female (let’s be politically correct here) the hipsters are so hip, they have to have these items. Although numbers 4 & 5 are also owned by many “other” people as well!
1. Hipster Glasses
It’s all about the “look.” Even if they do not need glasses, some people actually buy expensive, designer-framed glasses with lens that are not prescription. (Go figure?) Of course, when one needs sunglasses, one needs the coolest, hippest glasses that can be found!

2. Suspenders
Suspenders are usually a requirement for the hipsters, and they may not necessarily be needed to hold up the pants, but they are worn anyway, and they come in a variety of colors, designs, and with fancy emblems denoting expensive name brands.

3. Starbucks Card
A Starbucks Card can always be found in the wallet of a hipster. After all, the watering hole that is most hip is the one that disguises their bitter, low-quality coffee with sugary, syrupy flavorings, which are a food staple of the hipsters! They usually pretend to frequent the independently owned, small-time coffee houses, but we all know where they really get their fix ;).

4. iPhone

Not every Hipster owns an iPhone, but every iPhone surely owns a hipsters.

5. Hip Flask!
Preferably a 100% stainless steel, leak-proof, decent sized hip flask with perhaps a mustache design, and it’s probably filled with a fruit flavored designer vodka. After all, you cannot make an Apple Martini with ordinary Gin, as you do in the traditional martini. Someone who drinks apply martinis, as hip as they are, don’t really like the taste of alcohol.

At the end of the day, I'm not one to say what's stylish and what's not. Hipsters make their own way in the world, that's for sure. And maybe they're on to something with those glasses and suspenders. But as long as they carry a hip flask with them, they're okay by me. After all, it's the hip flask that puts the "Hip" back in "Hipster." :)
