>what is cheugy?
Cheugy means something that's off-trend. This term is popularized by tik-tok, some people might use cheugy to define something that is outdated, tryhard, uncool, and tacky. According to urban dictionary, "The opposite of trendy. Stylish years ago but no longer in style. Used when someone still follows these out of date trends. This may include but not be limited to fashion, habits on social media, usage of slang, etc." and dictionary.com defines it as "a slang adjective mocking someone or something as “uncool”—they are out of touch with current trends or trying too hard to be trendy."
Even though cheugy is mostly used to descrive cringy attitudes in adults (and to tease millenials), it can also be found between the current gen z. Even the word cheugy is debatably cheugy.
Some examples of cheugy:>Using brand logo clothes>Being a "disney adult">Using items that pander too hard into a fandom like Harry Potter>Phrases like "live laugh love" or #girlboss>Anything that might had been cool in high school or middle school but isn't anymore>etc
