Hautefacadism

Created by: arrrteest

Pronunciation: oht-fass-ahd-ism

Sentence: Pat and Gene worked for a upstart tech company that prided itself on acceptance and forward thinking. Casual Fridays seemed so passé that the wearing of jeans seemed quite the conservative costume. Thursdays became Thong Thursdays, Wednesdays became a true Hump Day where employees wore teddies or other intimate gear under their "Librarian" clothes. Titular Tuesdays dress code was provacative, however it was Mix-It-Up Monday's Hautefacadism that took the cake. Employees would often switch clothes or come already clothed in genderbending attire. To help along acceptance, the company planned a workshop on How to Tie a Tie, Walking in Pumps or Stilletos, and How To Accesserize.

Etymology: haute, French High from haute couture + facade, French façade false face + sadism, deriving pleasure from others' pain

Plaidfad

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: plad fad

Sentence: After the moviE, "Braveheart" came out, Mary's Scottish boss wore only kilts and tartans and encouraged those who wished to seek his favour to do the same. This plaidfad was a problem to Mary and others, who found it hard to find enough plaid gear to wear to work. One poor soul finally flipped out and was fired for refusing to dress the part. He returned the next day in tartans, wild hair and blue paint on his face yelling "Frrrreedom!" In one of life's ironies, Mr. Burns, the manager was let go himself the next week, when one of his female staffers complained to head office that she did not like the tilt of his kilt when he came near her!

Etymology: Plaid (Tartan;crisscross design on a fabric) & Fad (craze, trend;current interest followed with exaggerated zeal)

Crapparel

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: krap per el

Sentence: Henry resented the dress code at his work. Mainly because he hated having to wear a tie. He called it crapparel and was always pushing for casual Fridays, without much luck. Finally one day, he snapped. He marched into the boss' office and removed his tie and that of the boss. The boss was taken aback, especially when Henry ranted that wearing a tie did not make him a better executive and not wearing one would not make him a worse one. He continued that the tie made everyman look uptight and not relaxed and was only good for catching his lunch spillings on it (or as he called it Tie Food). The boss turned red, banged his desk and smiled. He agreed and declared that the office would now be a tie-free zone everyday. After work they went out for a My-Tie.

Etymology: Crap (obscene terms for feces;obscene words for unacceptable behavior) & Apparel (clothing in general;attire)
