Chav can be a noun, verb or an adjective. As in “you shitty scum chav”, or “Hey I like the way you have chavved up ya car/wardrobe/lifestyle/language” etc.
The origins of the word itself are unclear and there are a few theories, perhaps all of them correct. Nonetheless, the current criteria for being a chav applies as laid out in this dictionary and no doubt, as culture dumbs-down even more, the definition will need to be updated. Chavs will no doubt eventually, despite their in-bred lack of intelligence, cotton-on to the fact that burberry and it’s current associations foster great hatred and negativity amongst the majority of the population. This factor however, could backfire, as Chavs could consider the perpetuation of hatred and negativity as a great contribution to humanity, even if it is directed towards themselves from others.
The most recent example of a celebrity Chav is Kenzie in Big Brother. (I can’t remember the name of the boy-band he is in – so uncool – but I know it had the word “Crew” or “Squad” whatever, in the name). In fact, Kenzie actually said “no” initially to being in the BB house, but when he thought long and hard about it, decided to say yes as the word “brother” as in, “bruv-va” or “bruv” for short, sounded cool and he thought it would really do wonders for his street-cred. Kenzie is actually white, but to see his clothes and hear him speak, you would think he is black.
Chavism represents a cultural link with the Trailer Park Trash in The States which is actually a sub-culture of black America. They both inspire each other. The lower the common denominator they appeal to, the cooler they are! Both of these cultural factions are represented by the highly evolved people picked to appear on the “Jerry Springer” show. Due to the speed of the transmission of information in modern times ex. Internet, TV etc, cultures very quickly pick up bits from other cultures, bounce off each other, and this happens at such a rate that no-one exactly knows who originated what. But as society has evolved, and that is the key word, “evolved”, chavism did not happen overnight but evolved as culture dumbed-down and it became clear that it was not “cool” to aspire to anything other than basic animal appetites (for junk food, sex, cheap bling etc). Perhaps devolved is a better word!
Jordan is the ultimate aspiration of female Chavs. She is actually much more stupid than the average Chavette which is why they (chavettes) admire her so much. She is actually now trying to pull herself out of the Chav-pit she has made for herself by writing a book about herself, no doubt mostly really ghost-written by someone else, paid for from the proceeds of all the modelling jobs she has done which evolve around her flubber-inflated chest (but isn’t she a great business woman- fuckin what?), and is trying to appear in “serious” programmes such as Book Award Ceremonies. Unfortunately, she is still seriously boring as she has neglected her mind in favour of her chest , hoping that the more silicone she has pumped into those tits, the more self-esteem and intelligenceshe will attain and therefore rather than work hard and learn, just go see the surgeon again. Easy!! Her tits have now become self-funding entities (get it?) in their own right.
So my good friends, that is my input.
Chavette 1 - I nikked dis 'ello mag from da doc's....it's got Jordan and Peter pics innnit!

Chavs are people who think they are 'hard' and are often seen hanging around in large groups near bus stops. They tend to see markets as the ideal place to buy their needlessly revealing clothes. They have usually lost their virginity too early, started smoking too early and use words such as 'peng'.
Female chavs enjoy scraping their hair back and wearing trousers so tight they bend over and you see their thongs. Their skin is usually orange, sometimes varying shades of dorito and their hair is most often bleached blond.
Male chavs are often (but not always) seen hanging around skate parks pretending that they can actually skate but if you apply your eyes, i.e you are not blind, you will see they just sit there smoking cigarettes that they should not be smoking.
Chav- OH MY DAYZ, LOOK AT MY PENG NEW FAKE TAN! ITS TOTALLY SKEEN INIT!
Another Chav- OH.MY.DAYZ. INIT YOU HAVE TO LEND ME DAT HARDCORE TAN!
Normal Human Beings- Not more chavs...
A British term, meaning "misplaced tracksuit".
Him's a Chav innit?
Originally an initialism meaning "Council Housed and Violent", C.H.A.V, was used on social service reports warning officials of the nature of welfare criminals in council houses. With rising numbers of outlandish and farfetched cases of welfare criminality, the tabloid papers like; The Sun; The Daily Mail and the Daily Star adopted the initialism and formed it into a word to describe the "Chav" sub-culture that was rapidly developing around 2005 with more readily available Labour
benefits. The word is less commonly used now as it quickly turned into an insult as the scope of the word was very small, stereotypically referring to people wearing Burberry clothing, so anyone not acutely fitting that generalisation would be offended so when the real chavs realised how it was being used they took offense and probably walked twenty yards away from the person who had called them a chav and loudly shouted an insult followed by a threat ( or vice-versa) to gain attention and recognition from fellow chavs that they were going to kick off. This scene could still be seen in the present in poor, village type places, or any place where their is a "big fish in a little pond" scenario. The modern "chav" still has links with some of the lazy and "chavish" mannerisms that the original word summarized, it has become an insult to the poor who wear fake clothing, smell, and are illegally claiming the dole because they are too fucking laz...
People who think they 'own' territory and decide to spit on 'their' territory to mark it. They also wear hoodies/tramp caps to hide their ugly faces from the world. Another clothing is the classic 'trackies', trousers designed to fall down and show underwear to disgraced passer-bys.
OMG, he really needs to pull up his trousers, the Chav.
its a british stereotype... generally a teenager or young adult, but you get chavs in their 40s too. they shop at sports shops only, and wear tracksuits everywhere. the girls scrape their hair back into a bun and slick it with gel. the girls also wear extremely large hooped earrings. both male and female chavs wear as much fake gold and fake burberry as possible. they like to chew noisily and swear their heads off. most live on council estates and often have kids in their teens. the british form of a redkneck
A: whos that chick with all the bling
B: thats stacey, the chav.
Chav is an abbreviation of the phrase "Council House and Violent". Which is used to describe a particular section of British Society. Although in recent years Chavs have spread to mainland Europe, in the hope of more property to vandalise and a fresh society to weigh down.
Normally encountered sporting imitation Adidas tracksuits tucked into their socks; Burberry caps and white training shoes. Should you meet some in public profanities will likely be heard, although to who or what these are are directed is usually difficult to understand. Much like other wild animals most chavs will become defensive if interrupted during their routine activities; these include taggin
, smoking/spitting in car parks, congregating outside fast food outlets and having sex with underage girls in alleyways. Although unless they greatly outnumber you, their garbled bark is usually far worse than their bite.
