    @Tim It's the same thing as パイオツ from おっぱい. お洒落 is exaggerated as オッシャレ, then the characters are re-arranged, as well as small ッ becoming large. – Dono Sep 2 '14 at 13:10
  • Thank you - sorry if this seems obvious but if the ツ becomes large then can I confirm it is pronounced "tsu"? – Tim Sep 2 '14 at 23:50
  • @Tim Yes, that is correct :) – Dono Sep 3 '14 at 1:09

しゃれおつ or シャレオツ means cool, fashionable. Above.

Another version: おつしゃれ is a rearrangement of the same word however this version tends to be used amongst media piers, show biz etc. This version is not grammatically correct but still spoken as such.
