What is a simile?

A simile describes one thing by comparing it to something else using the words ‘as’ or ‘like’. For example, As fresh as a daisy. In everyday spoken English, we usually drop the first ‘as’, so the simile shortens to just e.g. Fresh as a daisy. Do not confuse these expressions with normal metaphors that do not contain ‘as’ or ‘like’.

List of 50 most common similes (with meanings & examples)

1. Avoid like the plague

When you stay away from someone or something as much as possible for negative reasons.

A: Did you do your revision?
B: No, I hate revising. I’ve been avoiding it like the plague!

2. Blind as a bat

When someone cannot see very well.

I’m as blind as a bat! I thought I saw someone I knew and waved at them, but it turned out it was a complete stranger!

3. Bright as a button

When you refer to someone as being clever.

Simon got a job at NASA. Bright as a button, that guy!

We can also use the noun bright button as in: My daughter’s a bright button. The opposite would be not the sharpest tool in the box.

4. Cheap as chips

We use this to refer to something very inexpensive. It literally means the item we are buying is more or less the same price as a portion of chips (or French fries as Americans say).

Happy days! Got these earrings for five quid in the sales – cheap as chips, mate!

5. Clean as a whistle

This can mean physically very clean and tidy or “clean” in the sense of 100% legal (not dodgy or against the law).

I’ve scrubbed the house from top to bottom. Clean as whistle now!

6. Clear as mud

Used ironically to mean something is extremely unclear in meaning.

I tried reading Dante’s Inferno the other day. It was about as clear as mud!

7. Cool as a cucumber

Used to describe someone who does not get easily stressed out. They remain calm even when under pressure.

Imagine your boss has given you and your colleagues a deadline in five minutes. You panic, but one of your colleagues remains calm. You could say that person is ‘cool as a cucumber’.

8. Daft as a brush

This is a funny expression from the north of England. It means someone extremely foolish and silly.

A: Did you see Steve wearing that massive hat down the pub the other night?
B: Yeah, that lad’s daft as a brush, mate!

9. Deaf as a post

This is similar to the meaning of ‘as blind as a bat’, but for hearing instead. It means when someone’s hearing is very bad.

I called Mark’s name three times, but he didn’t hear me. He’s as deaf as a post!

10. Drink like a fish

To regularly drink excessive amounts of alcohol.

One stereotype of Brits is that they drink like fish.

11. Drop like flies

A morbid simile. It means when living beings die in their masses (many die). This can also be used to say many people are ill or out of action.

Half of my colleagues are off work with flu. We’re dropping like flies!

12. Dry as a bone

To refer to something being completely dry.

I haven’t watered my pot plants in ages and the soil is as dry as a bone.

13. Easy as ABC

When something is very easy or simple to do.

I managed to do this week’s crossword in under 5 minutes. It was easy as ABC!

Similes with the same meaning include easy as pie and like riding a bike (about habits). In British slang, we can also say a piece of piss to mean something is very easy to do – e.g. That Maths exam the other week was a piece of piss.

14. Eat like a pig

To eat food in an unpleasant or messy manner.

I love my husband to bits (very much), but he eats like a pig sometimes!

15. Feel like death warmed up

When you feel extremely ill or sick. Like with food, the idea is that you feel like death (bad), but then reheated (even worse).

I got a really bad cold two days ago and felt like death warmed up.

16. Fit like a glove

When clothing is exactly the right size for you and fits perfectly.

I bought myself a new suit and it fits me like a glove.

17. Fresh as a daisy

To look and feel healthy and full of energy.

A: Heard you had a good one down the pub the other night.
B: Haha, yep. Fresh as a daisy now though, mate!

18. Get on like a house on fire

When people get on extremely well, have a lot in common, are good friends.

I haven’t known Diana for long, but we get on like a house on fire. We’re similar in many ways.

19. Go down like a lead balloon

When you or someone else says or writes something that is negatively received by others. This usually happens when someone tells a bad joke that other people find offensive.

I told my mum your joke about the nun and the toilet. It went down like a lead balloon!

20. Go out like a light

This can be a positive or a negative thing. Positively, it means when someone falls asleep quickly. Negatively, it means to lose consciousness or get knocked out fast.

I envy Kendra. I take hours to get to sleep, but as soon as her head hits the pillow, she’s out like a light!

Did you see the boxing match last night? Strong left hook and Khan was out like a light!

21.

Good as gold

When you or someone else is very well behaved. This is usually used for pets or small children. For adults it is a bit patronising.

Your son is as good as gold. Mine’s a cheeky monkey most of the time! 

Brits often use funny names to describe kids and their behaviour. For example, cheeky monkey (naughty), silly sausage (messing around), Little Lord Fauntleroy (privileged, expecting others to do all the work for them).

22. Hard as nails

A person who is physically tough, strong, good in a fight. Can also refer to being mentally tough or resilient.

Alison is hard as nails. She didn’t even cry when she watched Titanic! (Joke)

23. Have a memory like a sieve

To be incredibly forgetful to the point when someone says something to you and a short while later, you cannot remember what they said.

A: Hi, what’s your name?

B: Alan

*5 minutes later*

A: Hi, what’s your name?

B: Alan…I told you 5 minutes ago!

A: Sorry, I have a memory like a sieve.

24. High as a kite

Intoxicated on drugs. Used when the person being described is “very high”.

I saw a homeless guy outside the supermarket the other day. I don’t know what he was on, but he was high as a kite!

25. Large as life

When someone has a big personality. Imagine a room and when someone enters, their presence changes the room’s atmosphere. This is considered a positive thing. We usually use the comparative form larger than life.

The party was a bit dull until Sarah arrived. That woman is larger than life!

26. Like a bull in a china shop

This has two meanings. The first is when someone is very clumsy and causes damage accidentally. The second is when someone is tactless and enters a situation in an angry mood. Here the word “china” does not refer to the country; it means the delicate material traditionally used to make plates and teacups.

How many plates have you broken this week? You’re like a bull in a china shop!

Don’t send Sally to smooth things over with the boss. She’s like a bull in a china shop!

27. Like a fish out of water

When someone is unfamiliar with their surroundings or is uncomfortable in a situation.

When I first moved to Spain I found it really hard to make friends. I felt like a fish out of water.

28. Like a red rag to a bull

If you do something that provokes someone or makes them very angry.

Jimmy stealing Ted’s chocolate was like a red rag to a bull. Those kids are always fighting!

29. Like chalk and cheese

When two people are completely different. Think the exact opposite i.e. salt and pepper or black and white.

I don’t understand how Rob and Julie are still married. Those two are like chalk and cheese!

30. Like taking candy from a baby

This refers to something being extremely easy to do, usually involving some form of manipulation.

A: I advertised my consultancy work as a “VIP service” and charged clients double.

B: Like taking candy from a baby, mate!

31. Like two peas in a pod

Meaning that two people are very similar to each other in either character, appearance or both. The opposite of chalk and cheese.

Tommy and Timmy are like two peas in a pod. Their names even sound alike!

32. Like watching paint dry

When something is very boring. It cannot be used to describe a person.

I went to see a cricket match on Sunday. It was like watching paint dry!

33. Like water off a duck’s back

Refers to a potentially hurtful comment or situation that has no effect on the person (because he/she is resilient or ignores it).

I’ve told my son off so many times about coming home late, but it’s like water off a duck’s back.

34. Mad as a hatter

Bonkers, mental, nuts…these adjectives and this simile are all synonyms for ‘crazy’.

Dave went out in a snowstorm wearing only shorts yesterday. That man is as mad as a hatter!

The simile Mad as a hatter has an interesting history! It originated in Manchester in 1829 in a part of the city famous for its hat-making business. This work involved the use of mercury, a toxic metal that can cause symptoms similar to madness when absorbed into the body through frequent contact over time.

35. Quiet as a mouse

A person who is very quiet or doesn’t like to talk at all.

Lucy doesn’t like meetings. She usually just sits there quiet as a mouse.

36. Regular as clockwork

When something is repeated regularly at the same time.

For some reason, I get a headache every morning at 10am for a whole hour. It’s as regular as clockwork.

37. Right as rain

To be perfectly healthy and well.

I had a meeting with my doctor and she said I was as right as rain.

You may know the simile As fit as a fiddle, which has the same meaning as the one above. However, this expression is rather outdated now. Be careful to only learn and use similes that are still popular today…like the ones on this list!

38. Run around like a headless chicken

We use this to refer to a person who is doing something in a rushed, disorganised and illogical way.

Daniel is really struggling as my Personal Assistant. He has no order to his day and is constantly running around like a headless chicken!

39. Safe as houses

To be very safe or dependable.

While some investments are risky, I believe BP shares are safe as houses this year.

40. Sick as a parrot

Brits use this when we feel highly disappointed in something or are physically ill.

I’ve been in bed with food poisoning all weekend. I feel sick as a parrot!

41.

Sleep like a log

When you have a brilliant night’s sleep.

I slept for 9 hours last night and it was great. I slept like a log.

42. Snug as a bug in a rug

Think of the most comfortable situation ever. We use this simile to express that.

I was sitting in my comfy armchair with the rain outside, the fire blazing and a hot cup of tea – snug as a bug in a rug!

43. Stick out like a sore thumb

To be completely different from the crowd and therefore be very noticeable.

Everyone in the class had normal coloured hair, except Amy who dyed hers green. She stuck out like a sore thumb.

44. Sweat like a pig

When you are so sweaty that touching your skin feels wet.

I’m sweating like a pig today! It must be 40 degrees outside.

As you can see from this list, English has lots of funny similes. Another good example is: About as much use as a chocolate fireguard. This means ‘completely useless’. Obviously, the heat from the fire would melt the chocolate. E.g. A car in Venice is about as much use as a chocolate fireguard!

45. Thick as two short planks

This simile describes someone as being very stupid.

I really like Ross, but he is as thick as two short planks. He thought Rome was the capital of Croatia!

46. Thick as thieves

To be extremely close to another person or group of people. This is often associated with shared secrets and naughty behaviour.

47. Tough as old boots

When someone is very strong either mentally or physically.

48. White as a sheet

This describes a person’s face as going unnaturally white when they are scared or ill.

49. Work like a charm

When something works out perfectly and better than anticipated.

When I first met my wife, I told her she had beautiful eyes. Bit of a cliché, but it worked like a charm!

50. Work like a dog

To work very hard, slave away on something, graft. Can be associated with exploitation when you work hard for little reward.

I’ve been working like a dog this past year, but I still don’t have enough cash for a decent holiday.

Simile Examples: What Are Similes? — Figures Of Speech

Examples of Similes Using “As”

One of the connecting words you can use for a simile is as. Simply place it between the two things you’re comparing!

There are generally two ways you will see as:

  • By itself.
  • And in this pattern: “as ___ as….”

Here are some simile examples with as by itself:

  • Jaylene brushes her hair as a cat grooms its fur. 
  • My baby brother ate his ice cream as a pig eats its slops.  
  • Her thoughts flew as a bird on the wing.

And here are some simile examples with “as ___ as…”:

  • Greta runs as fast as a cheetah.
  • The rain is falling as hard as hail! 
  • You kicked that soccer ball as high as a skyscraper! 

Examples of Similes Using “Like”

The other comparison word you can use for similes is like. You can use it the same way — between the two parts of the comparison.

Here are some simile examples with like:

  • He snores like a bear does when it hibernates. 
  • They laughed like hyenas. 

The fairy lights were like twinkling stars.

Examples of Similes for Kids

Just because something has a grammatical name doesn’t mean it’s complicated. There are lots of similes that are great for kids.

For example, here are some similes with animals:

  • He roared like a lion.
  • She moves like a sloth.
  • Quick! Hop like a bunny!
  • Albert is as slow as a turtle.
  • Penelope is as strong as an ox.
  • Ruby grinned like a wolf.

Similes are valuable tools for expressing feelings and emotions, as well. Try some of these and guess where the connector word is:

  • Matias is as scared as a mouse.
  • They’re as hungry as a pack of lions.
  • His heart fluttered like a butterfly.
  • Her stomach felt like lead.

See? When you get the hang of it, it really isn’t that hard!

Similes in Everyday Language

You probably use similes in your everyday speech without realizing it!

Here are some examples of common similes:

  • Marin was as cool as a cucumber when we were taking that test.
  • You’re moving like molasses.
  • Roger is as sly as a fox.
  • Run like the wind!
  • That bicycle is as light as a feather.
  • I thought that question was as easy as pie.
  • She’s as sweet as honey.

Similes in Classic Literature

Similes are a classic figure of speech – which is why they show up so much in classic literature!

Here are some famous examples from authors you might recognize:

William Shakespeare

  • “She sings as sweetly as a nightingale. /… she looks as clear / As morning roses newly washed with dew.” ~ The Taming of the Shrew, II.1.
  • “My belly is as cold as if I / had swallowed snowballs for pills.” ~ The Merry Wives of Windsor, III.5.
  • “Her eyes, as murder’d with the view, / Like stars ashamed of day, themselves withdrew.” ~ Venus and Adonis

William Wordsworth

  • “​​To some remote and solitary place, / Shady as night, and beautiful as heaven” ~ Vaudracour And Julia.
  • “Fresh as a lark mounting at break of day, / Festively she puts forth in trim array” ~ Where Lies The Land To Which Yon Ship Must Go?
  • “‘As sure as there’s a moon in heaven,’ / Cries Betty, ‘he’ll be back again.’” ~ The Idiot Boy

Homer

Homer was an ancient Greek poet who wrote several epic poems, including The Iliad and The Odyssey. And he’s given his name to a special kind of simile: a Homeric simile!

This type of simile is also called an epic simile, another type of descriptive language. But rather than just a few words, a Homeric simile makes the comparison over many lines; in that way, it’s similar to an extended metaphor!

Here are some short examples of Homeric similes: (All translations are by A.T. Murray)

  • “Even as this serpent devoured the sparrow’s little ones and the mother with them—the eight, and the mother that bare them was the ninth—so shall we war there for so many years, but in the tenth shall we take the broad-wayed city. ” ~ The Iliad, Book 2
  • “And his eyelids wholly and his brows round about did the flame singe as the eyeball burned, and its roots crackled in the fire. And as when a smith dips a great ax or an adze in cold water amid loud hissing to temper it—for therefrom comes the strength of iron—even so did his eye hiss round the stake of olive-wood.” ~ The Odyssey, Book 9
  • “And as a fisher on a jutting rock, when he casts in his baits as a snare to the little fishes, with his long pole lets down into the sea the horn of an ox of the steading, and then as he catches a fish flings it writhing ashore, even so, were they drawn writhing up towards the cliffs.” ~ The Odyssey, Book 12 

Forrest Gump

Forrest Gump may not be classic literature, but it’s certainly a classic movie! And one of the most famous lines is a simile:

  • “My mama always said life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”

Similes in Song Lyrics

Because similes are so useful for making comparisons, this figure of speech always comes up in song lyrics.

Here are some examples of famous songs that use similes:

  • “Like a bridge over troubled water / I will lay me down.” ~ Simon & Garfunkel, Bridge Over Troubled Water
  • “And it seems to me you lived your life / Like a candle in the wind” ~ Elton John, Candle in the Wind.
  • “I’m like a shooting star / I’ve come so far.” ~ Tim Rice, Aladdin, “A Whole New World.”
  • “Just like fire, burning out the way / If I can light the world up for just one day.” ~ Pink, Just Like Fire

Similes in Advertising Slogans

Similar to song lyrics, advertising slogans use similes because they’re short and to the point. It’s an easy way to convey ideas without using much space. Plus, it’s easy for people to remember them.

Here are some examples of similes in advertising slogans:

  • “The Honda’s ride is as smooth as a gazelle in the Sahara. Its comfort is like a hug from Nana…Don’t be out in the cold like a wet pair of boots.” ~ Honda
  • “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there.” ~ State Farm Insurance
  • “Float like a butterfly. Sting like a bee.” ~ Gatorade
  • “Like a rock.” ~ Chevy
  • “Tastes like awesome feels.” ~ Doritos

Simile vs. Metaphor

Ask yourself, is it explicit or implicit? Direct or indirect?

This is the difference between similes and metaphors.

  • A simile makes an explicit, direct comparison.
  • A metaphor makes an implicit, indirect comparison.

In other words, a simile is obvious, and a metaphor takes a little more thinking. Often, this makes a metaphor sound more poetic. But both are excellent for making descriptive writing more engaging.

When you’re writing, how do you differentiate between a simile and a metaphor?

It’s simple! A simile will use like or as, and a metaphor won’t use either.

Here are some examples of similar sentences where one uses a simile and the other uses a metaphor.

(Note: You can’t necessarily just get rid of the connecting word in a simile – you might need to change around the sentence or add something to it.)

Example 1

  • The clouds, like cotton balls, hung in the sky. (simile)
  • The clouds were cotton balls hanging in the sky. (metaphor)

Example 2

  • Her thoughts were like horses racing down the track. (simile)
  • Her thoughts were horses racing down the track. (metaphor)

Example 3

  • Grover packs up his school books as quickly as a mouse grabs cheese. (simile)
  • Grover was a mouse, packing his school books in a hurry and scurrying away. (metaphor)

There are different types of metaphors too, which you can read more about on the metaphor page of our site.

For example:

  • George Orwell’s book Animal Farm is an extended metaphor, comparing farm animals to events in Russian history.

Conclusion

Are you as bright as a whip now that you’ve finished this article? Of course, you are!

You’ve learned how valuable similes are in the English language, the different types of similes, and how to use them.

Here’s the general rule: use a simile for explicit comparisons between two things. And to write a simile, use like or as.

Similes show up everywhere, from everyday conversations to classic literature. So when you’re writing stories or essays, practice using similes, and you’ll be a creative genius in no time!
