Unique Fashion

"Being the only one of its kind; unlike anything else..."

So for today's post in my A to Z project, I have chosen the topic of being unique. The fact of the matter is that we humans are pretty similar, but as individuals are unique in many ways. To me, being unique is simply being yourself, no two people are the same, so there will always be differences between us all. Unique is you. It's in your DNA, it's who you are. No one can ever copy who you are, it's an exciting and interesting concept! No one else can see things from your perspective, no one can have the same personality, same fashion tastes or life experiences. You are who you are, and that is what makes you unique. I think being a unique individual is something that shouldn't be looked down upon, but celebrated! Don't focus on being different and don't try to be something or someone you aren't, because life's too short to be someone else, just be yourself!

In terms of fashion, we may have similar styles or tastes, like the same trends or shop at the same stores, but how we interpret fashion and how we dress is something that is completely determined by you.  We make our own interpretations and tailor these to what we like and what works for us. Style is all about being who you are,being true to yourself and and expressing those qualities in how you present yourself. Your personal fashion style is about getting to know yourself and reflecting your personality and character, it's all about being connected with who YOU are - and be comfortable and confident about it! 

I have browsed the Internet, and found a short list of inspirational quotes about being unique and that are in favour of being individual!

 "We are all born originals - why is it so many of us die copies?"
- Edward Young

"When we allow ourselves to exist truly and fully, we sting the world with our vision and challenge it with our own ways of being."
- Thomas Moore

"My great mistake, the fault for which I can't forgive myself is that one day I ceased my obstinate pursuit of my own individuality."
- Oscar Wilde

"To be nobody but yourself in a world doing its best to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle any human can ever fight and never stop fighting."
- E. E. Cummings

Do you think being unique is important? Are you someone who isn't afraid to stand out in the crowd? What other quotes do you know that reflect this topic?
