Answer:  HIPSTER

(It makes perfect sense, but I wasn’t seeing it for a while!  All of the clue words are old friends, yet all of the jumbles came up as new.  The first three I saw right away, but “cnaitt” gave me some pause.  The answer letter layout was the best jumble.  It definitely gave me more than a pause!  My first instinct was something ending in IST, but I couldn’t do anything with the HREP.  If anything, it hid the word HIP . . . from me, very well!

The cartoon is great.  The dancers in the background are definitely moving their hips.  And, the trendy one has multiple attributes of a hipster.  But, I just wasn’t putting two and two together for a while.  She does have the whole vibe going on though.  Doesn’t she?  The completely inappropriate knit hat . . . in the tropics!  The big frame glasses, that may or may not be prescription.  Holding her grandé,  single origin, mocha, overpriced coffee beverage.  The funky fringed skirt, with a pocket for her cell phone.  And, something that looks like army boots!  Yeah.  She definitely screams hipster!  But, it took me some time to see it.  Maybe I was just tired?  Hmm.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    It’d be virtually impossible to figure this one out, and it’s not that I’ve done before either, for that. I may be called fashion-challenged these days by anyone born on this century, but even conceptually, it’d be hard to see those boots as a hipster attire. Then again, what do I know? Cheers

    Yeah, i’m anything but one of those, nor do I know any, so that word took a little effort to find for me too. I tried HER and SHE and then found HIP but still had to crunch had out the second syllable. Good puzzle!

    Shimmy on, all.

    Count me as one that’s not a hipster. The only way I got it was that after a bit of messing around with the clue letters, I decided that the last two letters were ER. So that cut down the remaining letters to 5, and more messing around I sorta got it. :/
