A Hipster!Harry Appreciation Post
Because he’s only in One Direction for the irony.
Warning: this post has no point except to somehow instill in you the notion that Harry Styles needs to embrace his hipster side already, for everyone’s sake. Just enjoy him in all his secret hipster glory.
(Only hipsters keep shirts for 2 years to give them that ~worn feeling. Also beanie.)
^ OKAY GUYS. 1. man/camera bag thing with the cross-body strap, 2. the sweater the shoes the light denim the outfit THE OUTFIT, 3. the yellow taxi, 4. not facing the camera, 5. this is so hipster it hurts (and it hurts so good)
THE CIRCLE SCARF REALLY
the kid is actually an Urban Outfitters model (^ note the fucking brown suede shoes and matching bag look at this hipster asshole) (also PEACOATS)
Looking very minimalist Americana here:
^ Okay 1. Foreign food, 2. who looks this good just standing in a kitchen doing absolutely nothing who let this happen 3. fuck this guy
the infamous love is equal shirt because equality still isn’t mainstream ya know
AND DO I EVEN NEED TO TALK ABOUT THE RAMONES SHIRT
PAPER AIRPLANE NECKLACE PLEASE
JUST SHOWING UP IN ANDY’S (Liam’s resident bff and all-around terrible, non-hipster person) TWITCAM IN A HIPSTA PLEASE SHIRT P L E A S E
And then his Temper Trap tattoo that is obviously rearranged lyrically and in a silly font because that reflects his feelings on society as a whole:
(and the star represents the idea that even the brightest, most beautiful things die but they go out with an explosion of love and infinity and jack kerouac and vinyl records and death cab for cutie everything’s beautiful and nothing hurts etc etc)
And he even has terrible dance moves, like ALL HIPSTERS TO EVER WALK THE PLANET BECAUSE THAT IS THEIR TRADEMARK (BONUS HIPSTER CRED TO HARRY BECAUSE HE’S IN A BOY BAND AND BOY BANDS USUALLY HAVE CHOREOGRAPHED DANCE ROUTINES)
(THE IRONY IS NOT LOST ON ME)
Just playing bass casually and nonchalant because come on guys it’s not a big deal:
And drums, too, because what hipster isn’t musically inclined:
JUST BEING IN A BAND AND BEING A PHOTOGRAPHER ON THE SIDE BECAUSE THAT’S NOT WHAT HIPSTERS DO OR ANYTHING
Then taking a little break to go antiquing so he can have shabby-chic furniture and impress all the Manic Pixie Dream Girls
Then look at this dude’s Instagram pictures:
John Lennon graffiti being cryptically captioned as “John Lennon… On a wall…” because 1. all hipsters trail off in ellipses and 2. John Lennon and 3. walls (which hold up society despite the fact that is it metaphorically crumbling all around us)
Fruit. Because hipsters are obsessed with health and organic and free range and soy and Monsanto is corrupting the local farmers etc etc. Harry is doing my job for me at this point.
Using the women’s bathroom because he doesn’t adhere to typical societal norms and isn’t like most guys
I don’t even know what the fuck this is (doesn’t help that it’s captioned with “Them ones…” [note the ellipsis]) but the mystery somehow makes it an even bigger staple in the Hipster!Harry scrapbook of infinite wanderlust:
DEER. BECAUSE HE IS A 16 YEAR OLD WITH A TUMBLR WHO REBLOGS PICTURES OF GIRLS WITH LONG BLONDE HAIR IN FORESTS LOOKING WHIMSICAL WHILE HANGING OUT WITH WOODLAND CREATURES HARRY I AM YOU AND YOU ARE ME
And it’s totally fine that he hangs out with Nick Grimshaw, the hipstery-est hipster of all the hipsters and who is the sole connection to any and all UK hipsters i.e. Alexa Chung and everyone she knows too I guess????
HANGING OUT IN HIPSTERY ARTSY STORES REALLY????
OH YOU KNOW JUST A RANDOM BONFIRE WITH PATRICK WOLF AND GWENDOLINE CHRISTIE AND GRIMMY IN SOME SORT OF ONESIE COSTUME THIS IS NORMAL
^ note the 2 year old plaid shirt and the fact that this is an Instagram picture okay this dude is living a low-budget indie movie hipster LIFE (also, the above picture and the below picture are different outings and yet Harry is wearing this goddamn plaid shirt in BOTH)
is he pretending he can’t afford new clothes and also renting Ferrari’s at the same time i am confused (and can someone please make a Styles & Grimmys friendship appreciation blog? if not I volunteer as tribute because their friendship makes me want to hang out in thrift stores and art museums all day)
speaking of art museums:
ugh let me just push you against a wall and make out with you in the lonely corner of the abstract art wing when almost everyone’s already cleared out because they don’t get art like we do
Also, he just hangs out with Jonny Pierce from the fucking Drums what who said this was okay
Just associating himself with various rock stars it’s whatever (also, Instagram)
And no big deal just riding bikes in NYC like the Brooklyn hipster he is?
Just hanging out at a gay bar because he’s fucking GREAT like that???
Just hanging out on the side of a building in an ALL BLUE SUIT with Miles Kane and a girl in a leopard coat okay is this a still from an underground French film that won over all the critics at Cannes????????
AND IS HE A MEMBER OF THE STROKES OR SOMETHING????
Do you play electric guitar alone in your studio apartment in Williamsburg at night with the amp all distorted? Do you write songs about the girl you passed on the way to the subway who was wearing a short skirt and a long jacket??? IS THAT YOU JULIAN CASABLANCAS????????
