School "Wacky Tacky Days" are all about fashion faux pas and breaking the rules, so bright colors, bold patterns and even ripped clothing are common. Oversized clothing and outdated accessories, such as ties and hats are also popular.
School students enjoy Wacky Tacky Day as a fun excuse to relax and be weird for the day. There is no set dress code, so it frees students to be as creative and individual as they like, although it should generally look both tacky and wacky. Kitschy childhood motifs like Elmo T-shirts are suitable as are long striped socks for a Dr. Seuss look.
