They like self expression through clothes and find that looking unique and separate from everyone else will help deliver the message that they are unique and separate from everyone else.

friends they most likely enjoy hanging out in the same places, doing the
same activities and may even work in similar fields. They have a lot in
common and that can sometimes be reflected in their outfits.

But just because you and your friend have similar style you can still have
indie fashion sense. Everyone has their own little twist, their own little
