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.

Ages can range from a minimum of 12 reaching the maximum of 30 and possibly above.Locations can range from parks to council houses to town flats.Rarely seen on there own,usually in packs as you will find they are quite useless on their own.They are unable to comply with the law and are pronouned for their bad attitudes in society.Very hard to reason with even worse to understand.Incapable of thinking for themselves,hense their codes of dress,they have to look like clones of each other.They enjoy activities such as creating spawn to carry on their cult.They are extreamly vile-mouthed that always have something petty to say also they are very argumentative.They interrigate other people and make a society look deprived.

An english derived term for a common type of British citizens. They can be of any age (usually 12 through to 80), and they all smoke, do drugs and binge drink.
Female and male chavs are both quite similar, as their dressing style (tracksuit) is the same, and both genders do not work.
Below is a typical example of a conversation between two chavs.
A: Ayup, why you lose so much fat, like?
B: I just popped out another one.
A: Whos da dad?
B: Dunno.
A: OMG dat's like sooo gangsta. :L
B: Yeah man. We so gangsta.
A: So why dey call us chavs?
