Ghettofied adjective from the late 70’s & 80’s that somehow became socially acceptable with predominately middle & upper class homogenized White Americans, especially during the last few years. The biggest mistake connected with the use of this term is that it should never be used to describe oneself. Those who use it to describe themselves never are.
Excuse me, I am a classy lady! Maybe I please have a paper bag & a straw!

when someone has style and swagger that is on a higher level than the general public

wearing plaid or houndstooth patterns add to overall classiness (but not when worn together)
Dude1: yeah those gangsters look totally badass in their oversized sports jerseys, but theyre definitely not as classy as steve over there, hes got pounds of class

Dude2: yeah i know, like theyre badass, but they lack things such as houndstooth shoes that promote classiness

Dude1: word. we should go invest in some plaid shirts

Dude2: i concur

An experience worthy of the term "classy" is rare, but it is possible to stumble upon one, regularly. Most often classy is used in the instance of a situation or description of something that has not yet been robbed of it's purity; of it's innocence. For the word classy can only describe something that escapes the cruelties of exploitation. Redheads used to be classy, until they were of course, dubbed "gingers."
"Unicorns are classy."

"Jesus is classy."

"soooooooooooo classy."
