The skulls on her tour-only Death Cab tee don't match the skulls on her vans, so it's not like she's trying too hard.
His PBR trucker hat and faux vintage t-shirt reveal an obsession with "irony."
A gaudy tattoo appears on her chest, and she is never spotted without her iPod.
He adores his rare-vinyl collection and tobacco pipe. Despite his 20/20 vision, he wears Buddy Holly glasses.
She suffers for fashion, wearing a furry hat, boots and keffiyah even during the warmest months. Her new wrist tattoo is the Japanese symbol for beauty - or at least that's what the guy at the tat shop told her.

She shops at retro boutiques and posts Holga photos on her blog. She has said that the koi fish cover-up tattoo symbolizes "nature and love and peace and stuff."
He thoughtfully hangs shutter shades in the deep-v of his white tee, and he's often seen walking his fixed-gear bike around town while texting with his iPhone.
By wearing the popular three wolf moon t-shirt, today's hipster makes a mockery of herself. She has finally completed her full-sleeve tattoo.
