According to Tatler these are the 53 things you can and can’t be snobby about

Shockingly Tatler doesn’t hate Crocs

Society magazine Tatler is back again with another posh and pretentious guide to behaviour and this time they’re suggesting what you can and cannot be snobby about. Despite usually turning their noses up about everything Tatler has loosened the reins and are now accepting of Love Island, Pizza Express and screwtop wines.

According to Tatler being a snob was not acceptable during the pandemic but now that things are getting back to normal they’ve decided it’s appropriate to give us all a lesson in propriety. Their list of 38 things you shouldn’t be snobby about shows just how relaxed the upper class has become during the pandemic – they’re even happy for people to have dirty cars and wear Crocs. The list also shows just how irritated they were by normal things before the pandemic like pillows, Gogglebox and not wearing makeup. Imagine judging someone for liking Gogglebox? Wild.

However not everything has changed as the magazine has still released a list of things you’re allowed to be snobby about which includes prosecco, indoor plants, self-help books and influencers. So you can judge influencers but not Love Island? How does that work? That’s where most of them come from.

This is everything you cannot be snobby about according to Tatler:

1. Digital invitations, such as Paperless Post
