    deregarde

    What does "deregarde" mean? It sounds French. It's used by an English speaker and he is referring to clothes that are deregarde.

    Thanks

    It's not a word I've met, but I'd interpret as 'not regarded [as fashionable]'.

    You're right about it sounding French, though I'm not sure a French speaker would use it in that sense. And because of its French derivation, it has four syllables. Similar words (with similar meanings) include déclassé and démodé.

    Possibly "de rigueur"? Meaning essential.
