This post was inspired by reading advice from a very smart and experienced international expert who used flaunt when he should have written flout.

“If there is a dress code, you flaunt it”

If you FLAUNT it – you show it off.

Flout = FlOUTLAW – someone who doesn’t obey a law or rule.

I know it’s simple – but simple works in remembering what word to use.

So, just remember if you disobey a law or corporate command – you don’t FLAUNT IT. YOU FLOUT IT.
