In the last few years, we have increasingly been hearing about the "hipster generation", a widespread worldwide trend that tickles the imagination of designers and specialized fashion magazines. What does a real hipster look like and how does he dress?
The hipster style is unconventional and aristocratic. Originally, it referred to a certain style of the 1940s. True esthete and lover of fashion, the hipster carefully selects his clothing and accessories, and, to be always updated on the latest trends, closely follows the men's fashion shows in search of new inspirations.
As a modern dandy, but slightly more eccentric and with an ironic approach, the hipster pays an almost obsessive attention to detail and consciously chooses the pattern and colors combinations, slender silhouettes and accessories with a distinctive design to determine a strong image and a unique character. Looking for aesthetic perfection, some rules are essential: the tailoring of jackets and coats, the refinement of the shirt and the particularity of the prints, some accessories like a tie or bow tie, the vintage look hat and shoes. To complete the look a bushy mustache and beard and an extravagant hairstyle are needed.
From the runways of Tod’s, Prada, Burberry, Alexander McQueen and Gucci here are three key best items suited to build a wardrobe in perfect hipster style.
Focus on shirt
Never wear a classic shirt if you can choose an ironic and vintage style printed one. The right thing to do is to match something traditional like the hounds tooth pattern coat, obviously well-tailored, and the Forties-style brimmed hat mixed together with other more modern elements, like a pair of street style trousers.

Focus on jacket
The jacket must feature a perfect cut, a modern silhouette and a touch of typically English eccentricity. Not to overdo, it is better to choose the remaining pieces of the outfit in matching colours. The sophisticated details and the precious and comfortable materials will make this outfit very stylish.

Focus on details
To be a real hipster you need to focus on every little detail of the look. Accessories and details must be carefully chosen and can become the true protagonists of the outfit. Choose a color and mix the accessories in a creative way. A minimal look will exalt the strong character of the mixing and matching.
