Step 1: Start at the top
Sport a worn-in button-down shirt. Avoid boxy, formal fits -- opt for slim cuts and lightweight fabrics instead. Remember, you're trying to dress like a hipster -- not Donald Trump.

Wear a cardigan or blazer -- the more it looks like you hijacked it from your grandparents' closet, the better.

Step 2: Rock a fitted T-shirt
Rock a plain, fitted T-shirt or find one with a retro logo or design -- movies, TV shows, bands, and video games are all hipster-worthy.

Stick with references you actually know -- there's nothing worse than a fellow hipster calling you out on being a poseur.

Step 3: Skinny-fits are a must
If you want to dress like a hipster, adhere to the 2-word hipster pants principle: "Skinny. Fit." For added flare, go with acid washes and day-glow neon colors that'll make the other hipsters don their Ray-Bans in awe.

Men, if you're truly brave of heart (and groin) try squeezing into a pair of male jeggings, aka majeggings.

Step 4: Get your kicks
Slip into hipster kicks like throwback sneakers, deck shoes, or chukka boots. Ladies, if elevation is a must, choose wedges, ankle boots, or schoolmarm kitten heels -- stilettos are about as hipster as non-reusable shopping bags.

Step 5: Accessorize
Dress like a hipster with the right accessories: knit caps, suspenders, vintage jewelry, messenger bags, and non-prescription "Buddy Holly" glasses are all fine choices. Now, strut the streets and make all those non-hipsters wish they were half as cool as you.

Did You Know?
The word "hipster" was used in the 1940s as an equivalent term to "hepcat" -- meaning a stylish or fashionable person.
