Allie Brosh Presents: Summer Fashion For Hipsters

If you are a hipster, your lifestyle comes with some unique challenges during the summer; namely, how to not die from hyperthermia under all those layers and copious ironic accessories.

As a hipster, you can’t just abandon your scraggly facial hair, hoodie, and vintage scarf and jacket in the name of homeostasis.  No.  You’re better than homeostasis.  When you feel hot, that’s just your hypothalamus trying to keep you down.  It’s oppression is what it is.  What you need to do is send a big “fuck you” to your hypothalamus by continuing to wear cold-weather clothing in the middle of July.

But you might be asking yourself “How can I express my disdain for my hypothalamus while still staying alive?”  That’s a good question, hipsters.  And luckily for you, I’ve come up with some answers!

Good luck, hipsters!  Have a bitchin’ summer!

      Aaaaah, my bleeding eyes! I’ve actually witnessed the ironic hipster speedo. And let me just say that even though the guy wearing it had the body for it, it didn’t make him look any less douchy.

      I love this post – ironically of course.
      Especially because boyfriend is hanging onto a PBR can in the requisite “bugger off” photo in your FAQ.

      Hmmm… I seem to remember reading something long ago in your blog about you shoving ice into your clothes… Tried, tested, true??? (sorry about the t-t-t’s) ;P

      Can you do a post on the clear strap bra? I feel like they are akin to the one-sleeve shirt and one-legged pants in their hatefulness.

      So this is how hipsters do it! I always wondered how my hipster co-worker could wear that black hoodie in August… now I know she probably read this article and has an ice-vest on underneath.

      On m 15″ laptop the sidebars on the page here totally cut off the comics and make them hard to read. Maybe someone could fix it? :) I love your posts here, they’re the reason I started reading The Gloss.

        Me too! It happens on all of them. Zooming in or out does not fix it. I think I have a 17″ monitor.

        If you right click, then select open image in new tab, you e can see all of the hilarity that is the captions.
