Rebel Fashion: Hot or Not?
Rebel with a Cause!
Rebels have bad names and even the word 'rebellion' seems like a bad thing. Yet, if we look closely, rebels are are those people who are different from the crowd. They are the one's who make a difference.
“I rebel; therefore I exist.”
― Albert Camus
“The most subversive people are those who ask questions.”
― Jostein Gaarder, Sophie's World
“Freiheit ist immer die Freiheit des Andersdenkenden. Freedom is always, and exclusively, freedom for the one who thinks differently.” ― Rosa Luxemburg
“If you really want to be a rebel get a job, cut your grass, read your bible, and shut up. Because no one is doing that.”
― Mark Driscoll
“Innovation is deviance which means that the rebellious personality is a natural resource for practical creativity. As an innovator, you need to reject the old to establish a new, better, status quo. And one of the most powerful sources of newness is the rebel or maverick, mind.”
― Max McKeown
“You can either be a person who is a coward, afraid, ready to submit, surrender, a person who has himself no dignity, no respect for his own being—or you can be fearless. But then you are going to be a rebel, you cannot avoid that. Either you can be a man of faith or you are going to be a rebellious spirit.”
― Osho, Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously
“My life. My choice. Live life only once. So to hell with the world”
― Nirmala Pandey

Back to the present, there are lots of apparels and clothing designs that have a glimpse of rebellion (directly and indirectly). Maybe, one of the reasons is that, the generation of today longs for something different and unique. Here are some of my personal favorite rebel fashion apparels:
Think Outside the Box!
“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… The ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” -Steve Jobs
A ShoutOut to all the Rebels!
Look within and find the REBEL in YOU!
