Monday October 17, 2016 is Wear Something Gaudy Day.

“Ever wish there was more than one day a year where you could take all the conventions of proper dress & throw them out the window? This day allows you to let all your best examples of excruciatingly bad taste hang out for the world to see.

In the 1970’s the hit TV Comedy “Three’s Company” we were introduced to a character named Larry Dallas. It was from this character that we first were given a fantastic example of how. Ever since then, people have been celebrating this day with a complete lack of style and fashion.

Obviously the best way is to choose something that is utterly without taste or fashion to wear. You can go to thrift stores to locate out of date fashions that are rarely worn today, or put together an ensemble designed to shock & appall. Get a group of friends together for a ‘Wear Something Gaudy Day’ shindig.

The point of this day is to stand out, so choose brightly colored fabrics with intense patterns. Maybe you can be seen in a shocking paisley brocade, or dig up those purchases you made that you didn’t realize were awful until you got them home. This day is your opportunity to show off the bright garishness that has passed through the annals of fashion history! Even throwing on a eye-searing boa can be a simple way to celebrate, or you can just wear colors that clash. Just get out there & make peoples eyes waggle! .

Check out old shows and cartoons to really find ways to bring out the gaudy in Wear Something Gaudy day. Check out the fashion accessories of yesteryear, like the ever awful ascot, to the large and ostentatious fashions of the Victorian era, or go all out and rent a neon-yellow zoot suit to really bring attention to yourself. Don’t be shy, it’s all about standing out, causing a scene, and snubbing your nose at the rules of fashion!” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’
