These Are Our Favorite 12 Latinx Hipsters

These Are Our Favorite 12 Latinx 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

Credot: Instagram @autocom_mx

Gael Garcia Bernal was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico to parents who were both in creative fields. He began his acting career as a child starring and practicing in short films and even a soap opera called “El Abuelo y Yo” (1992).  He is known for receiving a Golden Globe award as Best Actor in a Comedy Series in the series “Mozart in the Jungle” in 2016 and most recently known for his part as the voice actor for the character Héctor in the acclaimed animated movie “Coco” (2017).

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.

2. Diego Luna

Credit: Instagram @diegoluna_

Diego Luna Alexander is an actor and director who was born in Toluca de Lerdo and raised in Mexico City. Both his mother and father were heavily involved in the creative arts and shared that passion with Diego. Diego has starred in many telenovelas and co-owns a film company with his father called “Canana Films” which documents the unsolved murders of three hundred women.

The dull, but 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.

3. Michelle Rodriguez

Michelle Rodriguez is an actress who was born in San Antonio, Texas, US to a Dominican mother and Puerto Rican father. She spent time in both countries growing up. She is best known for her role as a boxer in the independent film Girlfight (2000).  She has also starred as Letty Ortiz in The Fast and the Furious films and other successful films such as S.W.A.T, Avatar, and Resident Evil. She has had a great career in not only films but tv shows such as Lost and video games, as a voice actress, such as Call of Duty.

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 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.

4. Leon Larregui

Leon Larregui is a singer and songwriter who was born in Torreón, Coahuila, Mexico.  He is best known for the songs he’s written as a vocalist in the Mexican band Zoé and his work as a soloist artist. His solo albums are titled “Solstis” (2012) and “Voluma” (2016).

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.

5. Bella Thorne

Surprised that Bella Thorne is on this list? Don’t be. Bella Thorne was born in Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA to parents Tamara Thorne and  Delancey Reinaldo “Rey” Thorne who was Cuban! Thorne has starred in many television shows such as Big Love and Shake It Up as well as many movies such as Forget Me Not (2009) and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad  Day (2014).

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.

6. Christina Milian

Christina Milian is an actress, singer, songwriter, and businesswoman who was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, the U.S. to parents Don Flores and Carmen Milian. She definitely remains busy. She is best known for her album “Christina Milian” in which two of her singles charted within the Top 40 of U.S.’s Billboard Hot 100.

Christina Milian’s style is often very comfortable with aspects that seem to come straight from the runway. She also plays with textures and patterns in her style. She maintains a very classy and calm style that also offers some fun with her use of accessories, shoes, and bags.

She was adopted from her biological parents (Peter Michael Escovedo and Karen Moss) at the age of 3.

Richie’s outfits are well planned out with aspects of comfort coming through as one of the largest needs. The accessories are what really bring out the hipster style in Richie. Whether it’s a cardigan, scarf, or pop of color purse there is no doubt of her uniqueness when it comes to outfits.

8. Oscar Issac

Oscar Isaac is an actor who was born in Guatemala to María Eugenia and Oscar Gonzalo Hernández-Cano. He was then raised in Miami, Florida. He is most known for his role in Ex Machina as Nathan, his role as Llewyn Davis in Inside Llewyn Davis, and his role as Poe Dameron in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Isaac shows off his hipster style with this fun blocky sweatshirt that doesn’t need any accessorizing. Issac also seems to be a fan of wearing plain shirts with suit pants or with a blazer on top. He easily spazzes up any outfit with one piece of professional wear.

9. Jackie Cruz

Jackie Cruz is an actress, singer, and former model who was born in Queens, New Your City, the U.S. by her single mother.

She has had lesser roles in other popular television series’ such as My Own Worst Enemy and Blue Bloods.

Jackie Cruz is another more eccentric hipster whose style flows into even her Instagram posts. The bomber jacket and sunglasses are statements with the pants making it less conventional. There is both an aspect of comfortability and fashion that she wears well. She wears many of her outfits with an attitude which makes all of them very unique and very hipster.

10. Lauren Jauregui

Lauren Jauregui obviously has a good time putting together her outfits. She puts together patterns and blocks of color that work together to create a unique look. A snakeskin turtleneck top or bodycon under a black overall dress with no patterns is just one example of her doing something new with a pair of clothes. This constant mesh of different colors and patterns is what makes her hipster.

11. Gina Rodríguez

Gina Rodríguez is an actress and activist who was born in Chicago, Illinois, the U.S. to parents Magali and Genaro Rodríguez. She is best known for her role as Jane Villanueva in popular television series Jane the Virgin, however, she has also appeared on shows such as Law & Order, The Mentalist, and Army Wives.

Gina Rodriguez is a fan of styling around the t-shirts. This can be seen in most of her posts, but she does so in fun and relaxed ways that create looks. Her no makeup look and hairstyles also add to the cuteness of many of her looks. Her style is very her and simply shows her wearing exactly what she wants to wear whenever she wants to wear it.
