daggy

adjective colloquialism
Daggy, adj. refers to something unstylish and dated, something very out of style and uncool. It also refers to something untidey and unhygenic.
 
It originates from Australia and New Zealand and was carried over to the U.S by people who either picked it up while they were away or from Australians who have come over. It is used by people to describe something particularly ugly or unappealing to the eye.
Etymology : Daggy comes from Australian and New Zealand lingo and it has to do with livestock, and it refers to the dung that clings to the rear of a sheep's fleecey coat when it runs. This scene is a very unsightly thing to see or watch, therefore this is an insult when referring to outfits or people.
