Today’s word is Soigne or Soignee
Pronounced swhan-yey, according to dictionary.com soigne is of french origin and means fashionable, well-groomed, polished, and showing sophisticated elegance. It is an adjective and I think it can and should be used to describe those people and things we find attractive, fashionable, or ‘rockin.’ As in:
“That actress is wearing a rockin’ outfit,” would become, “That actress is wearing a soigne little outfit.”
Hot would be another word that soigne or one of its synonyms could and should replace, as we too frequently refer to people and items as hot. Plus, the synonyms are a bit vintage and should be fun to play around with.
dolled up, dressed to advantage, dressed to kill, dressed to the teeth, dressed-up, gussied up, in full dress, in full feather, spiffed up, spruced up, well-dressed
My personal favorite used in a sentence:
“Evangeline Lilly is in full feather for the Lost finale party.”
