SXSW 2010 – What Will Hipsters Be Wearing This Year?

by That Guy on March 5, 2010

Every year that I’ve been to South by Southwest there’s been a fad that I didn’t see coming. 2007 was the year of the skinny jeans. 2008 was the year of the ironic mustache. 2009 was the year of the jorts. So what will it be this year? Trying to figure out what hipsters are going to be wearing at SXSW is like Frank the Tank trying to figure out what type of underpants the waitress is wearing in Old School:

I happen to look over at a certain point during the meal and see a waitress taking an order, and I found myself wondering what color her underpants might be. Her panties. Uh, odds are they’re probably basic white, cotton, underpants. But I sort of think, well maybe they’re silk panties, maybe it’s a thong. Maybe it’s something really cool that I don’t even know about.

And the hipsters will probably be wearing something really cool that I don’t even know about. So instead of showing up like a fool with my moustache and jorts, I’m going to take a leap of faith and try to guess what the cool thing is going to be this year and just wear it. My guess is unitards. It’s the only logical next step down the path of ridiculousness. Either that or Bugle Boy jeans with the elastic waistband and plethora of pockets.

What do you think hipsters will be wearing?

Neck beards. If you trim your neckline, stop now.

gaudy rings on at least 7 of your fingers.

I’m thinking 80’s style turtlenecks, but short sleeve for hipsterness.

Jewelry made of candy.

Skinny Chaps?

Dude, you didn’t get the memo? It’s going to be “Electric” T-shirts.

Kelly March 8, 2010 at 5:30 pm

well, i’ll be rocking the mexican guayabera (green on 3/17), so that may make me more of a douche bag than hipster, so be it…

I think he still wears that stuff

An iPhone in one hand and a Lone Star in the other…. Well I guess that’s not clothing. How about chain wallets and Stussy shirts?

Late 80s/early 90s style polka dots.

Mark it.

I’m seeing many unitards, very short shorts for the men and ironic footwear everywhere.
