    What does mediocre mean?

    I am confused whether mediocre means poor quality, average quality, slightly below average, or much below average.

    I made up this example: You have a mediocre taste in buying clothes.

    so how bad taste or average is the taste?

    Does it give a negative connotation? offensive?
