Wear Something Gaudy Day

Wear Something Gaudy Day is a day when people wear something flashy, outlandish, or excessively showy. In the 1970's television comedy Three's Company, Larry Dallas, played by Richard Kline, called for a Wear Something Gaudy Day. That is believed to be when the day got started, and people have been standing out from the crowd with their style of dress ever since.

How to Observe Wear Something Gaudy Day

Celebrate the day by wearing something gaudy. Wear something that clashes or something that is wild, wacky, and out of fashion. Find things to wear at thrift shops, or wear something you've had sitting in your closet for years and were too scared to wear in public.
