Definition of: elegant

(elə·gənt) adjective
1. Marked by refinement, grace, or symmetry, as of action, form or structure; also, possessing or exhibiting refined taste.
2. Possessing a fine sense of beauty or fitness.
3. Colloq. Excellent; capital.
4. Marked by completeness and simplicity; appropriate: an elegant solution. [<F élégant <L elegans, -antis fastidious]
Synonyms: dainty, exquisite. Elegant (Latin elegans, select) refers to the lighter, finer elements of beauty in form or motion, but is often misused as a general term of approval. Exquisite denotes the utmost perfection of the elegant in minute details; we speak of an elegant garment, and exquisite lace. Exquisite is also applied to intense keenness of any feeling; as, exquisite delight; exquisite pain. Dainty, at its best, applies to what is at once slight, delicate, and pleasing; in its extreme use, it may apply to sensibilities or feelings too delicate for the demands of practical life, over–nice, squeamish. See BEAUTIFUL, CHOICE, FINE1, POLITE. Antonyms: common, coarse, harsh, rude.
