Wear Something Gaudy Day

When : Always October 17th

Wear Something Gaudy Day is your chance to really stick out in a crowd.

The word "gaudy" refers to something bright, gay, cheap, showy, outlandish, or otherwise not in good taste.

Have a little fun on this day. For just one day, forego fashion and style. Look for something to wear that's really wild and wacky, and will stick out like a sore thumb wherever you go. If you don't have anything like this in your wardrobe, perhaps a friend does.

Note: If you're always garbed in gaudy attire, this is your day to look like everyone

Do remember "ugly sweaters"? Did you own any? Do you still own any?

I'm sure I owned some ugly sweaters in the '80s, but I certainly don't still have them!
