32 Gen Z Things That'll Definitely Be Considered Cheugy In A Few Years

Sorry bestie, but those fake vines in your dorm room scream CHEUG.

Recently, the word "cheugy" (pronounced like "chew-gee") — a term used to describe something that's "out of date" or "clearly trying too hard" — has been popping up EVERYWHERE.

Don’t talk to me until I’ve had my morning cheugy! Haha lol 📸REX/Reuters/Getty #cheugy #girlboss #friends #cheugytok #hashtagsarecheugytoo 💕🍷💋😍

For example, some stereotypically cheugy things are Chevron, the show Friends, and wine glasses with stuff like "Rosé All Day" written on them in THAT font. You know the font.

Since it's been coined by Gen Z to describe cringey millennial things, I've decided that I, a zillennial woman (which I feel like in and of itself is a cheugy thing to say, lol), should weigh in on what Gen Z things I think will be considered cheugy in a few years.
