Ostentatious

Ostentatious

<ahs-sten-tay-shish>

gaudy; classy; showy;

something flashy meant to impress others.

Her ostentatious hat had flowers and diamonds on it. Everyone gasped when they saw it.

Memory trick:
ostentatious reminds of ostrich.
an ostrich is flashy.

At work:
Our presentation should be ostentatious. Let's add dancing clowns with banjos.
