I think that each of us has items in our wardrobe collections that are considered tacky, but worn the right way just work! We have a thread Fashion Don'ts but I think we need one for those things that should be a Don't but aren't!

Vintage Gold Lame handbags - I can't help it....I buy it.
70s Disco dresses (I'll chop them short and wear with jeans)

Probably my extensive collection of leopard-print clothing - everything from coat to boots!

I don't know if this is tacky, maybe it's more kitsch but I have my own collection of Hello Kitty. Love her and I'm thinking of adding some more products next time I visit Tokyo

here goes...

My knee-high chunky brown boots. I just love it when they're worn with a collared shirt over a sweater and a khaki skirt in the fall.

My plaid "farmer"/"cowgirl" top. I can't resist. I love that sexy cowgirl look once in a while. Oh, and it's pink. Hah.

didn't Karl Lagerfeld say there was nothing so vulgar as good taste?
or something to that effect.

the first thing I can think of would be anything that looks like it belongs to your retired grandad: golf jackets and trousers in crazy colours; flat-caps, fedoras, and pork-pies; old argyle sweaters; seersucker stripe or gingham check blazers in the summertime.

and I have loads of 70s shirts in <how can put this?> questionable prints. I cant help it.
