Meaning of chic


Something that’s chic is fashionable or stylish. If you see a chic outfit in the window of a chic boutique, you might imagine that buying it will make you as chic as a fashion model.

Chic can also be used as an noun to mean a specific type of stylishness or coolness, like a downtown urban chic (skinny jeans, perhaps), or nerdy chic (big glasses). Chic is a French word, so remember, whether it’s an adjective or a noun, to pronounce it as “sheek” and not “chick,” so you can sound as chic as you look!
