Yuppie

Informal; an abbreviation for "young urban professional." A person in his/her twenties or thirties who makes significantly more money than most of his/her peers. Stereotypically, yuppies are extremely conscious of their social status, and some luxury products may be marketed especially to them. They tend to live in very large cities like New York or Chicago. The term was most common during the banking boom of the 1980s. It has a somewhat derogatory connotation.
