4 Unusual Ways to Express Your Individuality

Individuality is important to all of us. Defining ourselves through our interests, hobbies, likes and dislikes helps us to discover who we are in relation to our friends, co-workers and partners. Many people get tattoos or piercings to define their individuality, while others take up daring hobbies or express themselves through art. However we go about it, we all have an innate desire to understand (and help others understand) what makes us unique. Whether you want to embrace your character quirks or you're just looking to get noticed, here are four unusual ways to express your individuality.

Be Honest

There’s no use being dishonest about who you are or how you feel. If you lie to others, they’re never going to know who you truly are, and that’s doing them, and you, a major disservice. If you want to find your tribe, you need to start embracing the unique aspects of your personality that make you “you.” So take up a hobby you love, even if it’s slightly unusual. Don’t feel pressured into following fashion trends and don’t be afraid to voice an unpopular opinion. Just make sure you consider others and be respectful when expressing yourself in public.

Wear Unique Clothing

When it comes to what they wear, many people feel like they need to follow trends to fit in, but the reality is that clothing becomes a lot more fun when you learn to embrace your unique style and forget about what’s popular or fashionable. Start shopping in thrift stores and vintage boutiques instead of high-street clothing outlets. You could also consider making your own garments or customizing clothes you already own.

These days, you can personalize practically anything – from mobile phone cases to throw cushions. If you want to stand out from the crowd, find ways to put your stamp on your belongings.

Redecorate Your Home

Your home is another creative outlet for you to showcase your individuality, and it’s a project you can come back to time and time again. Think about your hobbies and interests: can you incorporate them into your interior design as a way of expressing yourself? As well as framing pictures of your family and friends, consider hanging posters of your favorite films, sports players or musicians. 

Having images and ornaments around you that express your true character will make you feel more at home in your surroundings. If you’re not sure where to start with redecorating your home, have a look at some interior design blogs or buy a home decor magazine and create a collage. Once you start collecting images you like, you’ll get more of an idea what appeals to you. In turn, you’ll learn more about your unique style and what it says about who you are.
