Am I the only one who didn't know this word? I've never heard it before. I thought it rhymes with ratty so it must be bad but that didn't make sense with the context. Natty makes me think of how my hair looks when I wake up in the morning after I've tossed and turned all night.
I asked my son when he passed through and he didn't know either. He looked it up.
(especially of a person or an article of clothing) smart and fashionable."a natty blue blazer and designer jeans"
synonyms: smart, stylish, fashionable, dapper, debonair, dashing, spruced up, well dressed, chic, elegant, trim; More antonyms: scruffy
P.s. I have to finish this book quickly. The third book in the Shetland Island series by Ann Cleeves in coming soon to a mailbox near me. Once it gets here I won't be able to stick to this one.
