Gee, You Look Snazzy!!

image: Seventeen Magazine c. 1967

I just read something which included the word "Snazzy". I haven't heard that word in a long time but I remember when I was younger, hearing people use it to describe something that was really cool. I started using it too long ago and then it just fell away from my vocabulary. It's a word that tickles me. I like it. Here's the definitions I found on line.

snazzy [ˈsnæzɪ]
adj -zier, -ziest
(Clothing & Fashion) Informal (esp of clothes) stylishly and often flashily attractive
[perhaps from sn(appy + j)azzy]
snazzily adv
snazziness n
