List Rules Vote up the qualities that really define a 2018 hipster.

Some people aren't sure if being a hipster is still a trendy thing. And when Portlandia – perhaps the ultimate source of hipster comedy – ended in March 2018, scores of millennials seemed to cut ties with the lifestyle choice as well.

There are quite a few traits that can be associated almost entirely with hipsters, though. While these relatively young individuals may no longer obsess over avocados or tiny mustaches, they do still prefer a bit of anti-pop culture. Hipsters in 2018 are a little more attuned to the world around them and are occasionally more concerned with certain political issues than finding the newest speakeasies and secret bars.

However, people born between the 1980s and early 2000s continue to have a few quirks. Hipsters aren't dead yet; just take a peek in a nearby luxury candle or metaphysical store.
