Gaudy (gaw-dee)| adjective

: ostentatiously or tastelessly ornamented

: marked by extravagance or sometimes tasteless showiness

: too bright and heavily decorated

: very large or impressive

 

That’s how Merriam-Webster defines it. Now for the Zazzle definition: An accessory or clothing item so awesomely outrageous (and maybe a smidge tacky) that you simply MUST own it. Kind of like a dog that’s so ugly it’s cute. Wear Something Gaudy Day (coming to a closet near you Saturday, October 17) is the quintessential holiday for celebrating a complete lack of style and fashion. But we believe that every true fashionista should carve out an area of his or her closet for a few items they only dare to wear for certain occasions. Even fashion icon Carrie Bradshaw incorporated gaudy items into her widely celebrated fashion repertoire (I mean, a tutu? really?). Here’s a little inspiration.

Hitting up an amusement park or heading out for a run or hike? Look no further than these awesome products by Cap-Sac, creators of accessories for the “bold at heart.” You’ll be sure to turn more than a few heads and, hey, they’re pretty darn practical.

A more “cultured” breed of shoppers might like to pay tribute to the ultimate name in gaudy design: Gaudi himself. A Spanish-Catalan architect, Antoni Gaudi is known for his over-the-top creations — in fact, it’s a widely believed myth that the word “gaudy” is derived from his name.
