New Term Alert: “Cheugy” Is the Opposite of Trendy

Most of us aren’t trendy, and it’s really because we don’t WANT to be.  So what’s a good way to describe that.

There’s a woman who goes by Hal on TikTok who coined a term for the opposite of trendy, and it’s starting to spread.  The word is “cheugy” (choo-gee).

The definition on Urban Dictionary is, “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  Used when someone still follows these out of date trends, including fashion, habits on social media, slang, etc.”

Some of Hal’s other examples are t-shirts with phrases like “Yes way, rosé”, Herbal Essences shampoo, the wooden signs you see at craft stores that say things like, “Home.  Heart.  Love.”, and “girlboss” mugs.

And she also wanted to make sure it’s clear that it’s not a BAD thing to be cheugy, we all like what we like.
