Definition of Jevita

Below we will show you what is the meaning of jevita , a term of colloquial use on the island of the Dominican Republic . Shall we start?

In some Latin American countries the word jevita is used as a synonym for a young girl or simply as a diminutive of the term Jeva.

In the Dominican Republic , this word gains another additional connotation. In this country it is often used to refer to a young woman from high society.

Currently, this term has fallen into slight disuse since in this context the word popi is often used as a synonym for rich girl.

It should be noted that the use of this term in an informal way became popular at the beginning of the 21st century in the streets of Santo Domingo.

Here are some practical examples of the use of Jevita in its different contexts.

  • ” She can be seen to be a Jevita ” – It shows that this girl is high class.
  • “ Last night we went out with some jevitas ” – Last night we went out with some young girls.
