Some people say being a hipster means taking part in the emerging culture of this new generation. From skinny jeans paired with work boots to fitted shirts and sunglasses, the hipster culture is likely here to stay for a while.
But does this mean one should spend a fortune on designer clothes to be part of this new culture? Or can someone simply wear faded jeans and cowboy boots to look like a hipster?
The evolution of hipster
Like any other cultural revolution, everything starts from ideas. One does this and so the other does that. The next thing you know, this simple idea has evolved. It shakes up the old foundation and a new culture is born.
Over time, businesses would pick up what’s new in order to stay afloat. A new chapter on the hipster culture begins when it becomes more of a fashion rather than lifestyle. Now, signature and designer brands have taken over the styles of the modern hipster.
Does it have to be overpriced?
There are other ways to dress and look like a hipster without spending too much. Among the basics is a simple pair of jeans and perhaps casual or work leather boots.
It’s true that these types of fashion items can be easily found at any popular shops across the U.S. If you prefer shopping online, you don’t have to leave your home. Online shops are open 24/7 and some even deliver orders the same day. But depending on the brand, chances are you have to pay more.
Others visit local tailors and shoemakers that offer cheap yet high-quality merchandise. This is because other than getting what they’ve always wanted, having it customized also offers the best fit. Yet in some states, custom stores may offer higher prices. But would you rather have your hipster look cheap or custom-fit? The choice is yours.
