SheFinds News: WAGs Nothing to Brag About

Remember how showing up on Sex and the City gave the Hermés Birkin bag and Manolo Blahniks major fashion cred from the Midwest to Down Under? Well, our fashionista friends across the pond have come up with a term to define the opposite: WAGGED. Referring to the infamous WAGs (wives and girlfriends) of England’s national soccer team, the term is applied to any designer look or label sported by the spoiled and often times tasteless clique of footballers’ lady friends. The fear of being WAGGED plagues high-end designers and potential “It” collections.

According to the UK’s Telegraph, one picture of Posh carrying a just-released bag could damage the cred of the carryall for good.


Now, we have our fair share of worst dressed lists and “what were they thinking” editorials, but isn’t it about time we came up with a compact term for all those fashion missteps that beleaguer poor designers stateside? It all comes down to finding a suitable acronym for “anyone who’s ever dated a Greek shipping heir, a Federline, or Wilmer Valderrama.”
