The term hypebeast is one that is used very loosely nowadays. An expression over used in modern pop culture, some use it to describe those who have an intense passion for streetwear and possess the ability to influence others and set trends, whilst others believe hypebeasts are just people who rock hyped items just to flex and impress those around them.
