These Are Our Favorite 13 Latino Hipsters

To be a hipster is to be a part of a subculture of hipsters. Hipsters have been generally identified by their very lax style that is also specialized. It used to be wearing many layers, or just layering patterns in an interesting but still aesthetically pleasing way. In general, people who are hipsters are defined as being, in some way, different from the broader culture. People who are hipsters are generally unapologetically themselves. They simply wear what they want to wear and therefore there are many types of hipsters. Here are 13 Latinx Hipsters with distinct and fun styles.

1. Gael Garcia Bernal

With a relaxed t-shirt, colorful baseball cap, gray drawstring pants, and bright chevron bracelet Bernal reflects the hipster style well. The choice of boxier glasses, as well as the stubble on his chin, also pulls the look together. When he isn’t wearing a suit, he often opts for outfits such as these.

The dull, but the interesting color scheme is what seems central to Luna’s hipster style. That mesh of professional with comfortable is what creates his looks. The vest with the button up underneath shows this, but the orange sunglasses and white sneakers bring an aspect of fun to the image. This mesh can be seen in many of Luna’s outfits.

Rodriguez’s style can be defined only as entirely her. It is defined but mostly comfort with aspects of style intertwined. In the images above, she e wearing t-shirts, but she styles them very differently in each outfit. In the first, the blocky black letters stand as a contrast to the white background that goes down to her pants. In the second image, she is wearing slouchy pale pants, a beanie, and a corroded leather jacket which adds character to the outfit. It mixes grunginess with cuteness and comfort. This is something that can be seen in many of her outfits.

The black blazer contrasting against the brightly patterned button up is what makes Larregui a hipster icon in this photo. He often meshes the business professional look with the casual/fun look. It makes him look like he’s always ready for a good time.

Bella Thorne is one of the more eccentric hipsters. Whereas it is conventional to wear duller colors in general with bursts of colors or interesting patterns dispersed throughout the outfit, Thorne has taken more to the “against the norm” approach of the hipster. The bright colors she wears and her mixing of different textures and colors gives her a voice through her outfits that is entirely hers.

Avocado Bar Opens In Brooklyn Then Runs Out Of Avocados In Three Hours


Avocado Bar Opens In Brooklyn Then Runs Out Of Avocados In Three Hours

A new restaurant opened in Brooklyn this week that promises to serve a menu almost entirely comprised of avocado-infused dishes.

Even Becky is on the Avocado train.

On Monday, the Avocaderia opened up in Brooklyn. It’s a restaurant opened by three friends from Italy who tasted avocados in Mexico and knew what they had to do.

A post shared by Avocaderia (@avocaderia) on

Francesco Brachetti, one of the three friends, was interviewed by the New York Times and said “They’re tasty and healthy, and I ate them every day,” when discussing his discovery of avocados on his trip to Mexico.

Guys from Italy went to Mexico, discovered exotic fruits, and decided to cash in? Sounds very familiar. Even the dude on the left is like, “Um, hey guys, is this a good idea?”

The Avocaderia is located in “Industry City,” which is neither a city, nor is it itself an industry.

It’s some sort of collective for hipsters to go and drink exclusive free-range, fair-trade, vegan, gluten-free, top-knot, flannel, macchiatos, or whatever.

Some natives of the area, myself included, think Brooklyn has had enough trendiness.

Hipster Pack

Industry City is the real world embodiment of “SoDoSoPa” (“South of Downtown South Park”) from “The City Part Of Town.”

This South Park episode focuses on gentrification. In it, the locals build an entire downtown area where there wasn’t one, displacing and inconveniencing the poor people in the area, to attract the alien overlords of Whole Foods to open a location in the area.

What happened to the Brooklyn I knew? Am I just out of touch? Old fashioned?

Am I just nostalgia-ridden for a time when Industry City was just another unwalkable part of Sunset Park? An area me and the homies enjoyed having as a scary area you just don’t go to, unless you were looking for a scary area to go to?

Man, I have severely digressed in this article. Um. Avocados. Right. Anyway, the food looks delicious as fuck.

A post shared by Avocaderia (@avocaderia) on

Now, the real question is how do I hold this? Do I need white privilege, or can I just use my hands?

According to reports, on its first day, the new restaurant ran out of ripe avocados, their main ingredient, within three hours. The fruit is notorious for its ripening pattern.

Apparently, they didn’t run out of avocados, they had plenty of those, they just weren’t ripe. Sounds like they were a bit unprepared. They discovered avocados like yesterday, so you can almost forgive them for not knowing. Almost.

Here’s Why Reinventing Mexican Food Is A Waste Of Hipster Chef’s Time


Here’s Why Reinventing Mexican Food Is A Waste Of Hipster Chef’s Time

We all know Mexican food is great, but nothing is more annoying when we hear our food-fetishizing, non-Latino friends say, “Have you heard of this great artisanal street corn? I think it’s called, ‘e-loat’?” Yes, we know it’s good. And it’s not pronounced “e-loat.”

What these bandwagon foodies don’t understand is that Mexican food was perfected a long time ago. We don’t need a hipster chef’s re-interpretation of corn to “discover” how great Mexican food can be. And while we would love to get really in the dirt on this topic, the truth is that the OCWeekly’s Gustavo Arellano already aired this exact grievance in a great article: “10 Mexican Dishes Hipster Chefs Need to Get Over Already.”

Check it out in the link below and let us know if you think he’s on the money, or a little too hard on these “hipster chefs.”
