So the 2015/2016 fashion sucks. Everyone wears the same right? Boys where black denim skinny jeans, or jogging bottoms? Shirts buttoned up to the top or a plain white top with one word on that they dont actually know what it means...Right? What about the hair? Every white guy in American went into that barber shop, and said 'Give me that Macklemore hair cut'! Is it a matter of self esteem? Why does everyone want to dress the same now? We are no longer individuals! Once upon a time, if you were an individual you were a 'hipster' now if you dress like everyone else or ridiculously, you are a 'hipster'?
Our self-esteem is what we build our life upon, and when we have confidence we feel more that we should be ourselves and create this identity we have. Obviously you can't buy confidence, and it's just a subjective matter, but the concept of labeling someone through what they choose to wear or consume can lower ones confidence deep deep into the ground.
What does hipster actually mean? Well without taking to Urban Dictionary, to find some word boggled definition, a hipster is a guy or gal who creates their style, and avoids the mainstream? Right? Ok, in reality some might believe they know everything in popular culture, wear glass lens glasses and driving Starbucks coffee, but really, they have made their own identity right? So what's so bad about that?
When did being hipster become a bad thing? When did calling someone hip become a bad thing? You mean that because someone wears what they like, whether they resemble Danny Zuko, A lumberjack, or Noel Fielding, they are being original and making their own original identity. It suddenly became something around five years ago where if you didn't wear what everyone else did you are laughed at or a 'Twat' or something else that is not quite clean for this blog post. But yet, why should you jump on the band wagon and do what everyone else does. It's not then your identity, its everyone elses too. You don't get recognised for blending into the crowd, you get recognised for standing out, being your self.
Be yourself - Top tip, be hip, dont be a jock, go to shpock, and buy a second hand frock, Be loud, and be very proud. Don't join the train, grow your mane, don't refrain.
