    spiffy

    This photo looks spiffy.

    I don't have such a word like spiffy in my dictionary.

    Re: spiffy

    Hi goingtocalifornia,

    spiffy adj., -ier, -iest.


    Smart in appearance or dress; stylish.

    spiffy = marked by smartness in dress and manners

    spiffy tr.v., -ied, -ying, -ies.
    To make attractive, stylish, or up-to-date: spiffying up my wardrobe.
    [Possibly from dialectal spiff, dandified.]


    Regards.
