38 Melancholy Hipster Photoshoots

From the California Countryside to Small-Town Hangouts

— August 31, 2011 — Fashion
Saying that you saw a 'melancholy hipster' is almost as cliche as making fun of one. Over the last decade, hipster style has moved from a fashion and attitude based subculture to fully invading the mainstream.

And it has done so largely through the support of the youth. Musicians, rappers, artists, writers, and other creative types have embraced bohemian style with aplomb. The melancholy hipster is one of the archetypes of the culture, if only for its position as pose of choice for young bohemians. The melancholy hipster facial expression has become one of the poses of choice for many in front of the camera, and this post is a celebration of their beauty, solitary nature, and style.

From beachside in California to sad hotel scenes, these melancholy hipster shots will suck you in with ease. Click through the collection to see what I'm talking about.
