the bossy jut of her chin

Against her will, Jo thought of Shelley. She remembered Shelley in her arms in the swimming pool, Shelley’s long, dark hair fanned out in the water, the curve of her dark lashes against her pale, freckled cheek. The saucy tilt of Shelley’s breasts, the bossy jut of her chin. Shelley in her wedding dress, her eyes hot and her expression wounded as she watched Jo dancing with Dave.

What does bossy refer to? Does she have the chin of a bossy person?

Thank you.
