シャレオツ (syareotu) is slang for お洒落 (osyare) .

  • What is the オツ?

    @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.

  • Thank you - sorry if this seems obvious but if the ツ becomes large then can I confirm it is pronounced "tsu"?

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.
