Could you, please, give a synonym to the phrase "You look nice". Does this sound natural if used as a compliment?

"You look nice" is fine. You could substitute other, more meaningful, words for "nice", "beautiful", handsome", "lovely", for example.

It's a compliment I would pay to a woman.

As a man, I would prefer to hear 'You look smart'.

The compliment will be more successful if you say what and why: 'That top really goes with your eyes' or 'You look really radiant - the change of scenery must be just what you wanted'... - something like that. (But what do I know? - Nobody's ever said that to me!)
