    There she is — that girl in your in lecture class. She has a full sleeve, her hair is dyed red and one side is growing back in from the undercut she used to have. You want to talk to her, but you will never get her attention — at least not in those duds. You have to dress the part, and here’s how.

    Supreme Hat
    Nothing tells a girl you have a St. Vincent song stuck in your head like wearing a Supreme hat. They simply look sick. Not only does it make you look stylish, it implies you know how to skate. What could be better? If it’s the indie chick you are after, this is a must. Check Buffalo Exchange before paying full price on this item.

    Skinny Jeans
    Not blue jeans — You’ll need a pair of skinny jeans. Regular blue skinny jeans are all right as a last resort, but if you are after the ultra-hipster, you’re going to have to dress like one. Run to Urban Outfitters or American Apparel and pick up a pair of brown or tan denim jeans. Remember that they must be cuffed, so buy them longer.

    Sweaters
    Sweaters are perfect for times during fall when it is not quite cold enough for a full jacket, but you want more than a hoodie. The best part of a sweater is it’s one of the easiest of all thrift shop finds and can be purchased quite cheaply.

    Smokes
    Cigarettes are to the hipster community what steroids are for major league baseball. I am not saying you should smoke by any means, but they definitely seem to be popular among the hipster community. If you don’t actually smoke, say you are trying to quit and complain about how badly you want one. Brand isn’t that important — just don’t smoke lights.

    Shades
    Do as London does — Theophilus London is the coolest man alive. If you are lost in the world of style and fashion. Google his name and start taking notes. What is the most important part of his look you are going to want to steal for yourself? His rad sunglasses. Everyone and their mother has a pair of Ray-Bans these days, so up your game and go high fashion. He has worn Lemtosh sunglasses by Moscot in the past, but those bad boys run upward of $250. So ask yourself, how much do you really want to impress this girl?
