4 Ways to Create the Ultimate Tacky Outfit
- Raid your parents’ closets. Okay, we’re not saying your parents are fashionless monsters. But chances are they have a few neons, prints, and tacky Christmas sweaters tucked away from decades past. Make the most of their past fashion choices by borrowing your mom’s tie dye tees and your dad’s cartoon ties from the 90’s.
- Get creative. Don’t be afraid to look a little crazy. After all, that’s the point of Wacky, Tacky Skate! Break out the fanny packs, game day face paint, and out-of-season outfits to create an unforgettable outfit for our costume contest!
- Mix n’ match. There’s nothing wackier (or tackier) than wearing patterns that just shouldn’t mix. Wear stripes with zigzags and polka dots with plaid. Wear as many clashing colors as possible, like red with orange or neon colors with boring beiges. Want to really make an impression? Layer those clashing colors, 90’s style. Floral tank tops over bright white t-shirts is a classic tacky combo!
- All about accessories. When it comes to a wacky wardrobe, it’s the little things that count. Wear two different shoes, layer half a dozen necklaces, wear socks on your hands, and tie scarves in your hair. It’s all in the name of wacky, tacky fashion!
