What do you think is tacky? As a way for someone to be dressed? As a way of someone acting? What about for decorations inside a house or room, etc?

I think it's tacky for people to dress casually or show skin when they're in a courthouse. Also, Walmart is not the place to bare your midriff, especially if you are not in shape. It's tacky to talk on a cellphone while a clerk is waiting on you, or when you're in public and everyone can hear your "private" conversation. As for decorating, to each his own.

Plaid pants, paisley shirt, pola-dot tie and leopard-print jacket would definitely be tacky...might be just the thing for Halloween or on April 1st. The dictionary says that tacky is something that is not fashionable or tasteful. Based on that, for me, tacky is anything not in today's fashion and house beautiful magazines and that I just don't happen to like. Thankfully taste is unique to each individual, and fashion changes overnight. So if buying clothes or home furnishings, go with what you like. Don't worry about what some one else thinks.

Well, tacky is different for everybody - but I notice behaviour and speech first, I think. I'm not fond of cheap t-shirts with offensive slogans on them - and a REAL pet hate is the 'Baby on Board' thingie which people hang in the back window of their cars!
