  • Adjective. Connotes disapproval. Often mistakenly rendered as [foo foo] or [fou fou], etc. It means overly fussy in style, such as clothes, hair, furniture, food, etc. Yelpers use [foo foo] to describe overly fussy food, like any drink at Starbucks requiring more than three words to order. Its current use is derived from an old word describing the sound made by a silk or taffeta dress as the wearer moves through a room or down stairs. It was used as a noun (the dress material) or a verb (to walk in a dress made of such rustling material), but never as an adjective. It should always be used in a negative sense; nothing the speaker approves of should ever be called frou frou.
