"cheugy"? A word made up by one person on TikTok  it's essentially the opposite of trendy, not necessarily uncool, but just a bit outdated. Another trying to make fetch happen

Is this what the kids call Fast Fashion?  I am into Slow Fashion.  I wear clothes for 10+ years until they have holes in them.

I was attracted to the gaudiest, shiniest, most Instagram influencer-approved clothing and accessories.
Welp, that tells me nothing you have to say will be of interest or importance

This is basically "avoid extremely unflattering fashion trends," but good to know the things I've already avoided as shiatty looking are considered "cheugy," so I'm good.

BTW, Kim Kardashian did not pull off bicycle shorts. At all.

But whatever, everybody has an off day every now and then. Or every other day. Whatever. It's fashion, so it doesn't really matter.

The good news is that I doubt very many farkers own these items.

We dodged a bullet on this one, fellas

I have undies older that those kids, with their hair and their clothes and their crazy lingo. Get the fark off my lawn!

Hey, I'm sure "cheugy" is all "on fleek" or something. (Do these gals seem more brain-damaged or just high to you?)

I'm almost 50. If you think I give a shiat my wardrobe entirely full of jeans, tshirts, and hoodies is out of fashion I have a car with a manual transmission to sell you.

Some people need to worry less about what others wear and everyone should wear what they want and (for the most part*) not care what others think. 

* Obviously there are some situations that dictate what you wear, such as job interviews and designated dress codes, but I am not talking about those situations.

I have a 20-year-old daughter who I think is with it -- plugged into social media, if nothing else -- and she had never heard the term "cheugy" until I introduced her to it when she came home from college about a month ago. We're having trouble piecing together exactly what it means.

She owns a Gucci belt with interlocking G's (Christmas gift from a family friend who works for Gucci and certainly got a nice deal on it). When she saw the list that included Gucci belt with big interlocking G's, she said "Ha! Mine only has medium-sized interlocking G's."

But she acknowledges that, on balance, she's probably kind of cheugy.

Urban dictionary defines "cheugy" as "The opposite of trendy. Stylish in middle school and high school but no longer in style. Used when someone still follows these out of date trends."

Why not just say 'out of style?'

That's when you move them into your punk collection and get another 10 years out of them.

Because ugly is a shorter word. Even dated.

Although I have no complaints about fashion, fashion is why I can wear my jeans into the ground til the knees blow out (I often sit cross legged) then iron them and sell them as ripped jeans and idiots buy them.

Wardrobe by Ocean Pacific, Dockers, and Timberland.

Does that make me cheugy?
 
2021-06-25 6:16:03 PM  
I wish that people would just wake up and realize that the fashion industry is just another cog in the capitalist machine, meant to keep us blowing our disposable income on purses and clothes and shoes and makeup instead of saving or investing it.  Why save up money for a down payment on a house, when you could just keep updating your wardrobe with each new season?  Also, who cares if the designer clothes that the average person is able to afford are already out of fashion by a couple of years to the truly rich?  It's just another way for those assholes to identify who has real wealth and who doesn't.
 
2021-06-25 6:16:09 PM  
If "cheugy" were the most embarrassing word late Millenials/Gen Z had created, it wouldn't be so bad.  Their slang, forever archived in their social media history, is going to be like my 70s parents' Polaroids.
 
2021-06-25 6:16:17 PM  
yeah, like people in Frisco are gonna tell me what's cool

Someone got one the bus the other day wearing sandals the showcased a full set of the grossest yellowed toenails I have ever seen. The big toe had a quarter inch thick monstrosity that actually made me gag.

But...they are ripped jeans (and ironed), right? What makes someone an idiot for buying them from you, the idea anyone would pay for pre-ripped jeans?
 
2021-06-25 6:23:43 PM  
That's why I shop at consignment stores in posh neighborhoods. Barely worn clothes that actually last because they're quality.

Subs and article author, if cheugy has made it to SFGate for an article, the kids have already moved on. Also dafuq is this author smoking. 540 for a belt get bent. My whole wardrobe is probably "cheugy," who gives a shiat. This is Fark not some GQ message board if that's even a thing. I guess it would be a GQ twitter thread or Instagram post or something. I dunno. Hey did I ever tell you kids the story of when grandpa caught a 20 pound trout up at the lake? What was I talking about again?

As a transplant to SF that's just barely taken, I'll wear Crocs if I don't want my dodgy knees to betray me when I use the stairs or have to ford a hill

But first I'll check that pesky It's Your Turn To Decorate The World Today app and make sure I'm not on the schedule

You can rest assured, your cargo jorts and duct taped shoes are as fashionable as ever.

There is a middle ground where you don't necessarily have to follow the latest trend and yet also not look like a middle-aged IT worker and/or cat lady that posts on Fark all day.

Good luck finding clothes these days that will last that long unless you spend ridiculous money.

There's cheap clothes that don't last long.

There's expensive clothes that don't last long.

And then there are purpose-built clothes that last a long time but are expensive as fark.

I love me some nice clothes that will last a long time, I just can't bring myself to spend 150+$ on a pair of jeans.
