English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. elegant

    The definition of beauty, "perfection of form," is a good key to the meaning of beautiful, if we understand "form" in its widest sense. There must also be harmony and unity, and in human beings spiritual loveliness, to constitute an object or a person really beautiful. Thus, we speak of a beautiful landscape, a beautiful poem. But beautiful implies also, in concrete objects, softness of outline and delicacy of mold; it is opposed to all that is hard and rugged, hence we say a beautiful woman, but not a beautiful man. Beautiful has the further limit of not transcending our powers of appreciation. Pretty expresses in a far less degree that which is pleasing to a refined taste in objects comparatively small, slight, and dainty; as, a pretty bonnet; a pretty girl. That is handsome which is not only superficially pleasing, but well and harmoniously proportioned, with usually the added idea that it is made so by art, breeding, or training; as, a handsome horse; a handsome house. Handsome is a term far inferior to beautiful; we may even say a handsome villain. Fair denotes what is bright, smooth, clear, and without blemish; as, a fair face. The word applies wholly to what is superficial; we can say "fair, yet false." In a specific sense, fair has the sense of blond, as opposed to dark or brunette. One who possesses vivacity, wit, good nature, or other pleasing qualities may be attractive without beauty. Comely denotes an aspect that is smooth, genial, and wholesome, with a certain fulness of contour and pleasing symmetry, tho falling short of the beautiful; as, a comely matron. That is picturesque which would make a striking picture.

How to use elegant in a sentence?

  1. Evangeline Lilly:

    I wanted her to move in a way that honored the comic book, which meant she would move in a very elegant, feminine, graceful way, and still look lethal.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Après la longue période de temps chaud et sec, est la première pluie de la saison la création d'un parfum exquis éloquente dans l'air - une odeur terreuse qui imprègne et flotte tout autour de nous, rafraîchissant nos esprits et de rajeunir nos vies. Je aime ce puissant parfum de séduction - émanant de l'union tant attendue de pluie tendre et douce tombe à terre soif sèche, et d'inciter une intimité instantanée dans l'air. Intéressant, cet élégant parfum envoûtant a un nom aussi. ça se appelle "petrichor"; un mot composé dérivé de la langue grecque - comprenant "petra" qui signifie «la pierre», et «ichor» qui signifie «le fluide qui coule dans les veines des dieux" selon la mythologie grecque. à mon avis, petrichor est sûrement un parfum divin qui doit être un cadeau du pouvoir suprême. Si ma vie était un parfum, je aurais sûrement l'aime à sentir comme Petrichor.

  3. Ben Carson:

    The candidates were very happy with you guys, it was very elegant.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    After the extended period of heat and dry weather, comes the first rain shower of the season creating an exquisite eloquent fragrance in the air - an earthy sweet smell that permeates and floats all around us, refreshing and rejuvenating our lives. I love that powerful seductive scent - emanating from the long awaited sensual union of soft and gentle rain drops with dry and thirsty waiting ground, instantaneously instigating an intense intimacy in the air. This elegant enchanting fragrance is called "Petrichor"; a composite word from Greek language, where "Petra" means ‘the stone’, and "Ichor" means 'the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods' per Greek Mythology. In my view, Petrichor is the most elegant and divine perfume that must be a gift from Supreme Power to us. If my life were a perfume, I would surely like her to smell like Petrichor, that exquisite earthy fragrance after the first rain.

  5. Laurie David:

    Even though the house is very architectural, with a lot of design, it's simple and elegant, it pulls you in and makes you feel like you're living outside.
