  • Hello everyone!

  • Welcome to Idiom 100, where we learn 100 commonly used idioms by native English speakers.

  • All of the explanations are in English, so it might be challenging for you,

  • but just try to imagine the meanings in your head and study hard and soon you'll be able to use these idioms in your conversations.

  • Is everyone ready? Let's begin.

  • Hello everyone!

  • Today's idiom is: suit yourself.

  • Suit yourself.

  • Alright, so let's think about the meaning of this idiom and let's think of a good picture to imagine, alright?

  • Let's say you go shopping with your boyfriend and you're shopping for a new suit, okay?

  • And you pick out 3 suits, maybe black, and gray, and pink.

  • Okay, and maybe the salesperson and your friend say, 'Maybe the black suit is the best. We recommend the black suit.'

  • And you say, 'No, I like the pink suit. I'll buy the pink suit.'

  • Maybe they say, 'Suit yourself.'

  • Okay, 'suit' yourself.

  • So, that's a good picture to imagine.

  • Alright, let's listen to 2 examples and try to think about the meaning some more.

  • Alright.

  • Do you want to go shopping today? It's beautiful weather outside!

  • No, I’m just gonna stay home.

  • Okay, suit yourself, but you're wasting a beautiful day!

  • Alright, so they said, 'Suit yourself.'

  • Maybe they recommended to go shopping, but the person said, 'No, I'll stay home.'

  • So they said, 'Suit yourself. Okay, be happy. We don't recommend it, but okay, it's what you want.'

  • Alright, so let's listen to the second example.

  • I’m not gonna take my umbrella today. I have a good feeling it's not gonna rain.

  • Suit yourself, you're the one that's gonna get wet if it starts raining!

  • Yeah, so their recommendation is, 'You should take an umbrella,' but she said, 'No, no. I don't want to.'

  • 'Alright, suit yourself.'

  • So, 'suit yourself' pretty much means,

  • 'Okay, do what you want to do. Maybe it's not a good idea, but it's what you want, so go ahead. Please yourself.'

  • Okay, so maybe it's not something you should say to your boss, but it's a very casual thing that you might say to someone

  • you think is being selfish or silly, making a bad choice. Alright, suit yourself.

  • Kind of a little condescending and not a good thing, meaning.

  • Yeah, okay, so let's try to use 'suit yourself' next time someone you know is making what you think is a bad decision.

  • Say, 'Okay, suit yourself. I don't agree.'

  • Alright, so see you next time. That's all for today!
