12 Signs You Are A Hypebeast

We all have that one friend who is on the game with fashion and what they are wearing and are dressed head to toe in the latest brands and what hip hop artists are wearing and repping. We call these individuals hypebeasts and they are people who follow trends in fashion specifically streetwear, for the purpose of making a social statement. Hypbeasts have become obsessed with being the best dressed in streetwear brands like Supreme, Bape, Vlone to name a few common brands. How can you tell who is a hypebeast? Here are 12 signs:

Matching outfits are really important

You learn to not mix brands together. One day it will be an Off White day followed by the next day Supreme and so on and so forth. You care about matching outfits but you don't want to be to matchy match.

They love their shoes

When you enter their room a hypebeast has a whole shrine dedicated to their many YEEZY's, Air Jordans and Nike Air Forces. They worship their shoe and treat them as if it was their baby.

You will camp out for hours just to cop a limited-edition item

Sleep is for the weak as they all say. If there is some item you want you will make it a mission to cop those latest YEEZY's or a new Supreme tee.

Buying things gives you a temporary high

If that means splitting the bill with multiple credit cards to pay for that said item, signs are you are a hypebeast. A temporary high is felt when you copped that special item you wanted. Your best bet is to swipe and hope.

They know all the brands

With so much time dedicated to online shopping and spending their time in the store a hypebeast will be in the know of all the brands whether well known or start ups.

Clothing isn't the only way to show your hypebeast life

Brands are creative in slapping their logo to advertise and hypebeasts will pay that money to show off their memorobia. Whether it be headbands, toys, jewelry or even foldable chairs like the one Supreme has.

They depend on Instagram likes

A hypebeast knows that their worth is measured purely by what other people think. And where can you truly see the thoughts of others? On Instagram.

Their wardrobe is more like a museum

Hypebeasts do not just wear clothes, they collect them. The word "deadstock," meaning brand new and unworn, is often used to describe the merchandise they compile.

Dressing up wherever they go out is a must

No matter for what occasion, hypebeasts make it a competition in who can be the best dressed in any situation.

You use slang hypebeast words everyday

Words such as cop, steal, and beaters are the basic hypebeast vocabulary words that beginner hypebeasts start to understand. Then they go onto the more complicated words such as Deadstock and the many other phrases.

Owning a fanny pack is a must

Who would have thought that fanny packs were to come back into style? Fanny packs are a must when you go out.

You will always be proud of being a hypebeast

So what if people such as your family, friends or society do not approve of you being a hypebeast? People have different hobbies whether it be collecting wine bottles or into sports. You are special and you should embrace the hypebeast culture.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
