I think you're thinking of "fob" style. Not all asians dress like that.

Wow, it's really hard to describe.It's a word Asian people (ususally who grew up in western countries) use to describe (most of the time with some negative connotations) things which are are look really Asian. It actually stands for "Fresh off the Boat" Most Chinese, Hong Kong, Taiwan mainstream style can be considered fob. Japanese and Korean mainstream style can also be considered fob but possibly this word was originated to predominantly describe the HK look.

Sorry if that wasn't a very good description LoL

Maybe photos help:


From sweetcandylove's post. This is very fob. The hair, the makeup, the clothes... everything.






From Marvystone's post. This is fob. The hair and the clothes.



From Baizilla's post. This is not fob.

But of course you can argue differences in age and the fact that she's the Editor of Vogue China so she can't possibly dress like a fob. But I'm generally just trying to paint a picture of what "fob" style is.

Yeah I can see how it can sound really mean, but the interesting thing is, it's a word created by Asians to describe Asians and it's usually only used by Asians. I suppose it's more of a joke rather than anything really serious.

It's very common to hear, if someone says something grammatically wrong in English, their friend would go, "you're such a fob" etc etc.

I personally don't take it as a racist comment or too derogatory in anyway but perhaps other people may be offended depending on the context.

i just learned the term from you:p but yes, that's exactly what i mean and i didn't know that there is even a word for it. It's like Paris Hilton style among asians. (i'm asian too btw). i do know not everyone dresses like that I like ur style! There's this girl in my class that is really 'fob'. you can easily tell who migrated and who was born here. I'm like that woman in the last pic...
