    Hipster

    Hipster refers to a subculture of young middle class adults and older teenagers that appeared in the 1990s. The term itself was invented during the jazz age, when ‘hip’ was used as an adjective to describe a cool and upcoming scene or eventually effortless cool urban clothes. Not sure were exactly the term came from, some believe it was a derivative of ‘hop’, a slang term for opium, while others say it comes from the African word ‘hipi’, which means ‘to open one’s eyes’.
