Modern Looks: 5 Ways to Adapt the Hipster Style

Layer Your Look

Learning to layer garments effectively is a key ingredient in constructing a hipster silhouette. For a hipster look, envision garments with hems of varying lengths bisecting the body. Think jackets, tight hoodies, blazers, vests, cardigans, flannel and oversized shirts. Add texture with leather, denim and bulky knits. Now balance all that fabric with a pair of tight jeans or leggings and a body-hugging tee. It sounds as though the style would appear hopelessly messy, but if you pull it off, it manages to look casual, carefree and comfortable.
