Is there any single word to describe, as the title says, tacky rich/trashy wealthy people?
The word nouveau riche describes this pretty nicely, while ODE lists the following as synonyms:
the new rich;
parvenus, arrivistes, upstarts, social climbers, vulgarians.
nouveau riche does describe what I'm looking for pretty nicely but it's not something I've ever heard used and the synonyms don't exacty describe this properly.
Edit: maybe new money is the term I'm looking for...
