According to Urban Dictionary, “cheugy” is defined as “The opposite of trendy. Stylish in middle school or high school but no longer in style (refer Gen Z).”

“Used when someone still follows out-of-date trends. This may include but not limited to fashion, habits on social media, usage of slang, etc.”

So, #cheugy life anyone?
