A trick for remembering the difference between "flaunt" and "flout."
Flaunt and flout sound similar but don’t mean the same thing.
When you flaunt yourself, your wealth, or your accomplishments, you’re parading them in front of people—showing off.
Flout means “to disregard, scoff at, mock, or show scorn.” A rebel flouts rules and laws.
